Gratitude: Not Just A Touchy-Feely Buzzword

'Tis the season to give thanks and take note of all the good stuff in your life. 

Like a lot of people, I look forward to watching Marie Forleo's videos every Tuesday. This week's is especially relevant-- she talks gratitude. Yeah, yeah, yeah. I know it sounds hokey. But I say this: watch her video and try to not be inspired to make a gratitude list. 

The key to gratitude is to be specific.  So in that vein, here's what I'm grateful this year.

1. Joshua Katt

I am thankful that I get to see this guy's amazing smile every day (he has perfect teeth!). And there's his infectious laugh. Ugh, and those eyes.

He's been nothing but supportive of me & my crazy dreams. I could not have left my job without him. I'm thankful that he knows how to get stuff done around our old house & does it! I'm thankful that his last name sounds good with my first name. I'm thankful for his honesty, especially when he knows it's not what I want to hear, but what I need to hear.

I love this guy. 

2. Family

We always say we put the fun in dysfunctional, and it couldn't be more true. That's precisely what I love about my family. We'll go the extra mile for one another & even when things get weird (they do, a lot), we can always find the humor in any situation.

I'm thankful for the newest additions to my family. There's Shari, my bro's new wife! She's so kind and funny and positive. Plus, she keeps my brother grounded. That's huge.  

And then there's my husband's family, the Katts. They're incredibly generous, hardworking, thoughtful and gracious. I'm thankful that they like taking warm weather vacations in the winter & invite us with! I'm so lucky to have found a guy whose family cares about family. 'Cause not everyone does. 

3. Friends.

I am so grateful for friends I don't have to self-censor around. Let's be honest, a lot of what comes out of my mouth would totally offend most people. My friends are hysterical, intelligent, kind, driven and beautiful. I appreciate their honesty, listening skills and ability to help me navigate this crazy world we live in. Plus, they're really fun to travel with. You guys are the best.

Just finished reading Caitlin Doughty's book. I realize a book on death isn't everyone's idea of a good time, but WOW did it ever feel healthy to read. This book made me a better person.

My winter capsule wardrobe hasn't gone as planned, but I'm still learning a lot. PS this shirt and this dress are the best things I've bought in a long time. 

Lastly, I have misophonia (& I'm a little embarrassed about it.)
