I love me some gratitude and turkey.
So today is pretty much a win.
Gratitude is the best. It helps calm your soul when you can appreciate what you have rather than reflect on what you want.
When I feel unsettled in life I often think "QUICK ANNETTE! WHAT'S GOOD?!" and I list in my brain some rad moments, it calms me down and I feel... I feel good about living life.
Today I am grateful for SO MANY OF MY FRIENDS. I have had so many HONEST and supportive conversations recently - it has been inspiring.
I am grateful for the changing leaves.
I am grateful for sitting here and writing this while sipping coffee.
I am grateful to you reading my words.
I am grateful for podcasts.
I am grateful for MEAT MEAT MEAT.
I am grateful for bacon and the magical way it can make kale taste.
I am grateful for FaceTime and the ability to call my parents on it.
I am grateful for the friends I made years ago in the Netherlands.
I am grateful for complex relationships.
Gosh. I could go on... and actually I think I will, but not here in this post. I think I will write my thanks out to exhaustion and send some notes to friends.
What are you thankful for?
