5 Things I'm grateful for today....

1. To be living in Joseph City, it reduces my anxiety by a BIT

2. Water, I hate feeling dehydrated, and I like being able to take showers everyday (or every other)

3. 3 healthy little kids, nothing stresses me more than having a sick kid, and it's been A LONG time since I've had one, I'm super grateful for that.

4. Turbo Jam, I wasn't getting bored of hip hop abs, but a change every other day is fun...even though I have to give it back tomarrow.

5. A comfy bed, we love our bed, it's huge (so we don't have to touch), and it's the perfect amount of cushy, and I love that we can sleep on top of the down comforter now that it's hot out.

I've gotta remember to do these 5 things everyday...I just watched some "think your way happy" show...I don't remember what it was called, just some motivational speaker, and i remember when one of the GA"s told us to do this 2 conferences ago, and I did it for about 3 days then stopped. This guy reminded me that it will help change the way I think, and not focus on the negative, and reduce my anxiety(about our next president). So remind me if I forget...I want to make it habit.

It's easy to look at the negative things, I agree. I've been stressed out lately too, but then I realize the same things - healthy kids, roof over our head, etc. Thanks for this post! I'm way stressed out & need to look at the positive things so i don't go completely in sane! We need to get together today because we are leaving tonight & need to show Jason all the DJ stuff.

Great post - WE ALL NEED TO DO THIS! We had a blast with your kids - they are the best, and I feel blessed to have them so close in age to my kids.

I need to remember to do this, too. Unfortunately we human beings seem to default to the negative view of life and have to work to keep positive. Thanks for the reminder.

Oh, I am right there with you on this one. I do 6 things I am grateful for and 6 things I want to do the next day. Helps me be productive and happy. Now I am totally not perfect, but 5 days out of 7 I am pretty good at it. Some weeks better, some not.
