Amidst the many unfortunate events that happened in my country the past days, I'm still confident that the silver lining is just out there, and peace and goodness is still innate in all of us. So while I pray for our recovery and healing, I look around and appreciate the tiniest grace, and see the world in child's eye.
So today, I'm Thankful...
...for a concoction of strawberry, cream, cherry, bitters and vodka, especially made for me. And because it was for me, I had the honor of naming it: WILD PINK!
...for seeing myself everyday in the office hall, which reminds me how narcissistic I can be, which is a good and bad thing, but honestly, aren't we all one?
I get teased and praised for posing for this all the time!
...for a movie that reminds me how I shouldn't ignore my man, and how sexy and powerful a woman is! Fiesty!
...for lovely things delivered on my desk (Thanks, Nikki! Muah!)
...for comfort food for the aching body and tired soul
...for luxuries, no matter how small
...for a well received event, which makes all our hard work well worth it! Thank you!
...for a pat on the back and words of encouragement from a beautiful person (Big hello, Alex!)
...for friends I haven't seen for years, realizing what we needed was a good five minutes, and we're all back to where we were: young, naughty, silly and super noisy!
...and for being addicted to something that makes me feel like a gradeschooler again!
If I can strap my camera with me all the time, and if it wouldn't be awkward to photograph each and every beautiful thing and person I encounter, then you might need all night to finish this post. I'm an advocate of seeing things out of the box, I believe on random things being special. If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, then happiness is clearly a choice of your heart.
Have you been grateful lately? Tell me! =)
