Merry Christmas!…Countdown to 2017

christmas-theme

How are y’all doing? Its been a minute and I’m glad to be back. Thank you to my readers who’ve allowed me share my thoughts on this blog.  I appreciate the kind words, messages and feedback. Just know that where ever you are  – you are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!

Christmas is finally here…and you know what that means; the countdown to 2017 has begun. If you are reading this, you are alive and that’s  something to be thankful for. Christmas is a time to love on and appreciate family and the people we do have in our lives 😀 Its a time to wipe the slate clean for the past year – to be good to yourself and accept the things you could not change in the past twelve months, to forgive others for their shortcomings in both the little things and big areas of our life and to strive to do and be better.

I AM THANKFUL FOR …

Having survived another year of mad traffic. If you reside in the North Texas area, having people violate basic traffic rules or cut in front of you without a trafficator signal is the norm. I was literally on the road to becoming a decorated sailor – and yes, I said ‘SAILOR’. 😀 But i found a way around it. Instead of a slew of ‘bad words’ :D, I started out  by asking sweet questions like, ‘Did you forget to bring your brain out with you today’? 😀  Or ‘Do you know there are rear lights on the left and right side of your car that let us know where you intend to go? And guess what? – They’re absolutely free!! 😀 😀 ha ha. Those laughs help de-tense and de-stress you by the time you get to your destination.

The Waiter who gets my order right some of the time. Stopping by my favorite restaurant to pick up my order and getting back to work only to realize some item was no where to be found. (I’m not really the happiest camper when I’m hungry) 😦 I finally realized (duh) it wasn’t personal and they might have so much going on just trying to stay afloat during the lunch hour peak period, it was so easy to miss something. The few times they got my order right, I commended them for it so much so that these days whether I’m picking up an order or eating in, they double check to make sure.

So friends,…. no matter how amazingly high or Debbie downing low this year has been for you, I can guarantee there are at least a few things you’re thankful for, no matter how mundane and insignificant they might seem.

2016 has been a great year y’all…So feel free to write up your own list and try looking at the glass as half full instead of half empty and see how that changes your outlook and perception of the past couple of months.  I hope you have a very Merry Christmas.

Until I come your way next time. Ciao!
