I am thankful for


1. Naps: I had been in sleep debt for such a long time now, and over this weekend I slept well and a lot, and I feel like I have some energy back. 

2. Alone time: My roommate was busy this weekend, and I was all alone- just doing my sleeping, laundry, reading. Like I have said before, it is a recharge for me to spend some time with just myself without the need to talk or be there for others. 

3. Work: Past few months were a long, painful wait to get work. I used to hate those days when I was just waiting and it made me feel so worthless. But finally, I have got it!
Bonus point: the perfect location- it's a five minute walk to a beautiful park facing a lake. I have been going there every day during lunch. 

4. Fights: Normally, fights aren't something people are thankful for. But sometimes they show you how people care for you or how much you mean to them, so yeah today I am thankful for few.

5. A good news: My childhood friend got engaged! Yay! The wedding date is not set yet, but I really hope it's sometime when I can be there too. Nonetheless, I am happy for her.

6. Sunshine: I am now getting an ample dose of Vitamin sun everyday, good for both my mood and health. I must remember to put on sunscreen though,

7. Pain: It is one of the hardest feelings when inflicted on you, but as you keep going you find yourself becoming much stronger. So, I am thankful for all the strength it has given me! 
(Not so thrilled about the heartbreaks though)

What are you thankful for?

  9. I understand that feeling- especially seeing your parent in that position. I am glad he is getting better. Sending my best wishes!

  10. What a wonderful list! I love that you were able to turn a few negatives into positives. I could really, really go for a nap or two :)

  11. I am VERY thankful for alone time. It's my favorite. Well, my alone time includes my dog, but he's amazing so he doesn't count. ;)

  12. I am thankful for hardcore workouts that make me feel AWESOME.

  13. That's a better version of alone time! :)

  14. I love alone time, too. And flights. Despite the headaches and the stress, it always means (well, for me it has) a new adventure is around the corner.

    Good for you for catching up on sleep (much needed, always) and getting that Vitamin D in! Love this list and hope you're having a great weekend!

  15. Thanks hun! Happy weekend to you too..

5 Motivational Quotes about Gratitude // Monday Motivation

It's the Thanksgiving week, and we can use a little more gratitude in our life.  So, today I am sharing few quotes about gratitude  to fill our hearts more with love and abundance and to remind us that life isn't bad at all!

“Sometimes life knocks you on your ass... get up, get up, get up!!!  Happiness is not the absence of problems, it's the ability to deal with them.”  ― Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free

“Piglet noticed that even though he had a Very Small Heart,  it could hold a rather large amount of Gratitude.”  ― A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

“In the end, though, maybe we must all give up trying to pay back the people in this world who sustain our lives. In the end, maybe it's wiser to surrender before the miraculous scope of human generosity and to just keep saying thank you, forever and sincerely, for as long as we have voices.”  ― Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

“When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed.”  ― Maya Angelou
