Dave started a hash tag a few months ago that he (cough cough) no longer participates in.  Every night before I go to bed, I outline at least one thing I am grateful for.  I might not tweet it, but I make sure #GratefulEveryday is a habit I don’t break, even though.  Lately, I see a few bloggers doing the rounds of what they’re grateful for.  I decided to take part.

  1. I’m grateful to have a really good friend as my other half.  Jon and I love each other, yet we’ve struck up the most beautiful friendship on top of the intimacy of being in a relationship.  We giggle, laugh, tease and joke with each other constantly.  He’s my number 1 go to person whenever I need advice or to vent or just to share something.  I like to think he does the same with me.  I fell in love with this man before we became friends, which was the topsy-turvy way of going about this relationship thing, but I’m so grateful we have the best of both worlds in each other.
  2. I’m grateful to have my mom right up the road for me.  I honestly don’t know how I lived so far away from her before.  If I don’t see her every 3 days or so, it feels like there’s something missing.  I’m also very selfish, but since she’s single again I feel like I have her full attention when I’m around.  It’s been a long time since I felt that with my mom.  Aside from everything else, the emotional support we give each other is second to none.  And it’s wonderful that I can pop in for a ten minute coffee on my way home most days.  I’m very lucky.
  3. I’m grateful for my lifestyle.  Jon and I share a good, fulfilling and happy life.  We can afford to be comfortable and go out for dinner, we can happily stay at home and watch TV or read books the whole weekend.  It’s completely up to us what we do with our life, and I’m grateful that we have the choice on when to change that option.
  4. I’m grateful for my family.  I know loads of other people who don’t like their siblings.  I love mine!  They’re insane, funny, ridiculous and awesome, all at once.  My parents are fantastic, and they raised us with very alternative methods, but I think we turned out okay.
  5. I’m grateful for my career.  I love the people I work with and even though I don’t always come home with a smile on my dial, for the most part, I am grateful I have work issues to contend with – I could be a street walker!
