30 Days of Thanks: The Beginning

Well hello there, strangers! October and this blog just didn’t seem destined to be. And I am 100% totally okay with that. But I’m here again! So happy November to all of you! Let me just get one thing perfectly clear around here: it is NOT the C-word season yet. So expect lots of hand turkeys and giving thanks around here. 🙂

Fare thee well, pumpkins! See ya next October!

Speaking of giving thanks, I had the absolute pleasure of stumbling upon Amanda’s (name twin for the win!) blog post today. I agree with a lot of things that she posts/believes in, but MAN. This one hit the proverbial nail on the head. I think we can all use some silver lining searching in our lives. And so, with the beginning of November comes the beginning of the 30 Days of Thanks Challenge. With some mentally rocky waters, challenge is an appropriate word, but I’m ready to take it on.

Today I actually left work early. I don’t think I’ve ever taken a sick day at this store. At least not one where I leave two and a half hours into my shift. Hello, migraine station. I really didn’t want to leave, because this pay period is not going to have gallons of money in my paycheck. And that’s when it hit me. Am I really so concerned with money/work/school/dance/things I “have” to do that I’m going to neglect to take care of myself? Hello? McFly? What’s up with that?

Stephen Covey Priority Quote

I am a sucker for The Daily Love’s daily quotes.

So, while I do still have that nagging migraine, I also feel filled with a new…something. Maybe motivation is the right word? I’m not sure. I’ve been driving myself crazy, and I don’t want that to happen anymore. Silver lining for today: attitude adjustment. And I couldn’t be more thankful for it!

Are you doing any challenges for November? Fill me in!
