Counting My Blessings

Today there is no power at the office, so I stayed for a while, met with some guests, did what I could and when it was apparent that it’s probably not coming back today – I decided to come home and work from there for the afternoon. Thankfully there is power here – and as I’m settling down to get some work done I find myself in a reflective sort of mood. Thankful. At peace. Blessed.

It’s a really good practice – to count your blessings one by one. We say it a lot – but actually sit down and do it – even write them down. It’s a really easy way to re-prioiritize and get back to that thankful place. The truth is all of us have things to be thankful for. There’s always something. And all those little things really add up when you start counting them.

I started to count some of my blessings, big and small – these are the ones that popped into my head just now but there are so many.

An amazing and loving husband who is coming back home tonight!

My beautiful boys who mean the world to me

Work that I enjoy and that fulfils me – I truly get to do what I love 

The beautiful home we get to live in

Friends (that are always there no matter how far apart we are)

Being able to meet so many people from so many different walks of life



Lots of Joy

A supportive and loving extended family on both sides

A visit from my parents, grandpa, brother and brother’s girlfriend in less than two weeks! (SO excited about this one!)

Re-discovering hot chocolate with a mint tea bag  – ’cause it’s the little things! (Go try it right now!)


I am truly grateful for this life I have. What a gift. So give it a try – count those blessings and have a wonderful day! 🙂

Your life is a time to immerse yourself in every single thing possible. Be selfish with your time, and all aspects of you. Tinker with shit, pack light && travel far. Explore, love a little, smile a lot, && never, ever touch the ground. It's not selfish to love yourself, take care of yourself & to make your happiness a priority. It's necessary!
