Gratitude Journal - 10.31.16

Happy Halloween, everyone! I love this time of year. We had some early fall cold fronts, and now it's been in the 60's and 70's everyday. It's been warm, and dreamy with fall colors changing much more gradually. I'm not used to this here. Global warming is definitely a thing, especially up here in the mountains where we usually get pummeled with snow around Halloween. I can't remember a Halloween of my childhood where I wasn't wearing a snow coat under my costume, but this year it's supposed to be in the high 50's. 

I thought I'd take today to share what I'm grateful for, since I haven't done a gratitude post in a while.

I'm grateful for the ability to change our lives whenever we need to. Life has been crazy, I'm talking more about that in Wednesday's post this week, but I'll mention some of it here. My body has made itself quite sick. I am doing everything in my power to fix and heal it, and little by little I see progress. I have a long way to go, but I know I'll get there if I persist. 

Beautiful fall days here allow me to walk around in the cooler air, and think about all the dreams and possibilities life has to offer us. My husband and I are both dreamers, so we stress a lot about living up to our expectations. Lately, there have been many instances of us forgiving ourselves, and trying again. Many renewals, and optimistic outlooks on things have begun.

I love this type of year, and everything it brings with it. The holidays are coming, and they always make me nostalgic, and full of love. I'm hopeful and excited, it's been a long time since I felt that way. 

++ What are you grateful for right now?
