30 Days of Gratitude: Week 3

The strongest part of my body in this moment is......I'd have to say my legs. Even after basically taking a 3 week break from running (with a few intermittent jogs in the middle) - I am clear to resume training. I went for a 10 mile run yesterday, and worried that I wouldn't be able to carry though. But to be honest, my legs didn't even feel a hint of soreness. I have all the strength training and biking to thank for that!

Even after a rough day at work, the things I'm most grateful for are.....This answer is very evident for me right now! My coworkers. After working at different hospitals in a different state this summer, I gained a serious appreciation for my coworkers. I honestly think my ER is the dream team of ER's. No matter how busy it is, everyone helps each other out. People always have your back, and that energy is contagious. We all work as a cohesive team, and we find things to laugh and smile about throughout the day. It makes even the worse days enjoyable.

I also love that I am an 8 minute drive from my house. Yep. It takes 8 minutes every single day.

I'm grateful that my legs carry me....Period. I have a very active job, that requires me to be running around on my feet for 12 hours at a time. I also enjoy an active lifestyle. Over the past year, I've had 3 incidents where walking hurt -- so my appreciation for moving pain free overflows!!

I felt a little burst of energy today when....The alarm went off at 4:45 am, I grumbled a little and was still in that "confused awakening fog". I then remembered, "I'm not in Texas anymore!!!!!"

The best song I heard today was.....It's early, so I'm going to pick yesterday's best song. We had a little dinner party last night, and after our guests left I was doing dishes and our music was still playing. The song "Lazy Mary" came on, and Ryan and I started dancing in our kitchen - and it just brought me great joy and laughter.

When I look inside my closet I'm grateful for....So many things. 1) Obviously that I have clothes. 2) That I can afford to have clean clothes. And clean water in order to launder those clothes. 3) That most of my closet is full of summer clothing, swimming suits, and dresses because I live in a warm & sunny climate. 4) That my closet is no longer the kitchen pantry in a hotel room. 5) That I don't own any rompers.

Your turn to answer these questions!

I love that song and can see why you started dancing! That made me happy! The strongest part of my body is, hmmm, my heart? The best song I heard today was the one you posted here! LOL!
When I look inside my closet I'm grateful that I do have clothes, but I need to pack my summer clothes away and make room for the winter ones! My closet is packed! I should even pack some up and take to a second hand store! I haven't felt a burst of energy today yet, but when I get to the lake, I will! If it's not raining I will mow the lawn and that always makes my energy level jump! I'm grateful that it only takes me 1 minute to get to work and rarely do I have to stop for traffic at all!
