Today I am thankful for having the courage to step completely outside my comfort zone, what was easy for me, and go for what I actually wanted. And I am thankful most of all for the results:
A man I adore who enjoys coming home to me every night.
Three beautiful kitties who love the sounds of the city, the large window sills, and cuddling up to their parents.
A fantastically charming and cozy apartment that is just the right size so we can’t overfill it with packrat crap.
A new city that embraces me just the way I am, no matter how I choose to be.
A new job that challenges me every day but lets me teach them a thing or two.
The subway — both the good and the bad of it.
My insurance agent. (what? she’s awesome!)
Friends who are far away but still care about me.
Family members who are far away but still love me unconditionally.
That rut in the street on W 55 between Broadway and 8 Ave that I am always stumbling over, which reminds me to look down, pay attention, live in the moment, and appreciate my life.
Those who touched my life and are now gone but never forgotten.
I am thankful for so much more, but those are a few things…
Have a safe and happy holiday if you’re celebrating. Have a safe and happy Thursday if you’re not.
