🎶 ‘Blessed is this life,

and I’m gonna celebrate being alive!’

— Blessed; Brett Dennen

Celebrating being ALIVE today,

and celebrating 87 years of my Poppa being alive today, too! 😊🎉

One of the best parts of my day was calling to sing him 🎶 ‘Happy Birthday’

complete with “CHA CHA CHA’s” of course! 😉❤️✨

I hope you celebrated being alive today, too!

You may think that you are completely insignificant in this world. But someone drinks coffee from the favorite cup that you gave them. Someone heard a song on the radio that reminded them of you. Someone read the book that you recommended, and plunged head first into it. Someone smiled after a hard day’s work, because they remembered the joke that got told them today. Someone loves themself a little bit more, because you have them a compliment. Never think that you have no influence whatsoever. Your trace, which you leave behind with every good deed, cannot be erased.

So a few years ago I posted something that made me happy/I was grateful for/the best part of my day …

So a few years ago I posted something that made me happy/I was grateful for/the best part of my day — every day, as part of the 100 Happy Days challenge. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I continued after 100 days, and did it for a few years actually.

People seemed to like it, it was a great way to capture and chronicle my life, and it was just overall really positive. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I’ve been thinking of starting something like that again, so here’s a list of things that made me happy/I’m grateful for/overall positive things I want to share today: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

– WAKING (because honestly we should all be grateful for waking up every morning) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

– Waking earlier than expected

– Mornings at home with my Mom and R ❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

– Coffee and Ginger tea ☕️

– A nice long run in the sun 🏃🏼‍♀️🌞

– Blue sky, green grass, sun shining, the sound of the birds chirping 🌞🐦💙💚

– Running and dancing (two of my absolute favorite things EVER 🏃🏼‍♀️👯‍♀️😍) and my amazing body ❤️

– WATER 💧💦 after that long run, plus the fact that I have clean, running water is pretty phenomenal

– Knowing THE UNIVERSE HAS YOUR BACK ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

– Typing that ^ and accidentally typing “The Universe GAS your back” 😂😂😂 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

– Connecting with other people, and getting messages that make you feel like you’ve made a difference in someone’s life

– Dancing around and eating yummy food! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

– Fresh, local produce — Beets with turmeric and ginger! 😋

– Finding new music that speaks to your soul 🎶😊❤️ (Body of Love by Ben Lee) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

– The sound of my mom pulling in the driveway after work

– Walks with her to get more of that fresh, local produce!, with an amazing sunset sky 🌅

– Taking the time to be grateful for all this, relaxing, and going to bed to do it all over again tomorrow 😊❤️✨

Do what you can with what you have, where you are


This Day … Its a fresh start, a chance to set a new tone for the rest of the week, and a great day to be alive.

LISTEN TO YOURSELF If your body is telling you to avoid certain foods and eat more fruits and veggies, do it. If your gut feeling is telling you to distance yourself from certain people and get closer to those who have a positive aura to them, do it. If your heart is telling you to travel, quit that job, start this project, spend more time in nature, take a break, read this book, be with that person, go for it. Your higher self knows what’s best for you so don’t ignore the messages!
