I am grateful.

I am grateful. This thought, more than anything at the moment, occupies my mind.

As many things as there are in this world that drive me batty and leave me constantly questioning our humanity, how we as a species got here and how we may ever hope to advance, I haven’t lost sight of the fact that my life is pretty damn good. 466 more words

If you want to run, run a mile. If you want to experience a different life, run a marathon!

Yello all!

I spent this past weekend in Athens, which greeted me with fantastic warm weather and gorgeous sunny skies.

Back in the Spring, I had signed up for the Athens original marathon and booked my awesome hotel room (courtesy of my final remaining hotel points thanks to my Consulting life), And somehow over the summer, Ines, my Austrian friend from Norway, decided to sign up for her first marathon and join me to my trip to Athens! 1,074 more words


Grateful for Healing Process

A few weeks ago my daughter had dental surgery. She was nervous when she went in for her appointment and with reason: she was to have two teeth pulled in preparation for her braces; an extra tooth was to be extracted that was pushing against her front teeth; and gum was to be cut away from the top of her far back teeth. 247 more words



I haven’t been the best at keeping up with my grateful posts over the last couple of months, but I have to say that the dedicated effort to look for things for which to be grateful over the course of the day has impacted my life greatly. 37 more words
