today, i am grateful for…

…waking up at 0400. walking with buggs, watching the sunrise and photographing it…

…getting to enjoy two cups of black coffee before getting ready for my appointment…

…the nicest, coldest shower that i think that i’ve had this hot sweaty summer. i felt so much better afterwards, like a new person ready for my day…

…clean clothes that felt and smelt really good. i was glad to have something super comfortable to wear for my test. so comfortable in fact, that i may have worn said outfit as a “sleep costume” before…

…r*****d being kind enough to get up and take me to my test, as i needed a driver to drive me home after the test. i was really surprised and really thankful…

…r*****d treating me to a cold drink when i was finished…

…w***y making both r*****d sandwiches upon our arrival back to the apartment…

…w***y and j***y watching buggs while i was having my test…

…really super nice nurses…c****l and l**a…they were funny and kept me entertained. l**a installed my iv quickly and painlessly…

…some clarity and focus…

…for really good advice for reaching my goals and attaining my dreams. i’m grateful for my friend and her kindness. she has a beautiful, strong, and wise spirit…

…losing five more pounds…

i am becoming focused. i am appreciating my achievements. i will have what i want.

namaste.

july 21, 2017…

today, i am grateful for…

…a wonderful email from my friend. it was received a few days ago, but i’m still feeling much gratitude today. it was very unexpected and very appreciated. it made me feel re-inspired to write and keep moving in the right direction…

…an early morning walk with buggs before it got too hot and humid…

…three cups of coffee enjoyed on the patio with buggs, as the sun came up…

…my god a whole glorious chunk of quiet time without r*****d, from 0500 until 1344. it was heavenly. i got a lot of writing done and didn’t have to compete with r*****d for control of my hearing, thoughts, or sanity…

…a delicious dinner created by w***y…

…my adorable, silly clown of a dog, buggs. who today discovered peanuts and his love of them. i dropped one on my stomach and left it there waiting to see what would happen, as he had been watching me eat them very carefully. i watched him, as he allowed his curiosity to get the best of him. he sat and focused on the peanut for the longest time, but then, very slowly he crept forward until he was just about there and then, he stopped. he stared at that peanut, until he could no longer stand it anymore. he then, swooped in, grabbed it and jumped onto the floor, where he proceeded to chew it up and swallow it. and then, he jumped back up on me looking for more. he stared at me, until i gave him just one more…

…my friend and her sister arriving back at lax safe and sound, from mn…

…a day off from work, errands, and exercise after losing all day yesterday…

…being able to have the freedom to leave and go anywhere, at anytime. it’s absolutely blissful to know that i have a car, a full tank of gas, very few possessions, and a dog. we could really do it…we could do it right now…tonight!! go home that is…it’s incredibly possible and i know that now…

i am growing stronger and healthier everyday. i am becoming more secure and confident in myself. i am worthy and deserving of love.

namaste.
