Thursday - My Monday

I don't know why but for the longest of time Thursday is my day to reflect and begin again. Not like Sunday for some or Monday - Thursday - the day before the weekend begins. It could be because it's pay day. Could be because I'm looking forward to Friday clock out time.

Thursdays are when I decide that I'm going to eat healthier, exercise more, be on time for work (I'm chronically late and grateful that I work for such a liberal institution). I just jump into plan mode... which leads me to...

Being grateful...
In my reading of other people's blogs this week (My Peeps as I refer to them), I noticed that they posted their grateful list. I usually journal mine regularly or whenever I'm feeling like life is just so unfair because I don't have X-Y nor Z. Mondays through Wednesdays tend to be my somber days but it's something about my Thursday that gets the ball rolling. Today I woke up thinking, "What in the world do I have to feel crappy about?" I am so grateful for so many things and so my list goes like this:

I'm grateful for:
Getting to work on the NYC transit system safe from hurt, harm & danger
Having a closet spilling with clothes that I can pick from (today I'm wearing black to show my support for the Jena 6)
My 2 on-the-job friends who keep me in stitches
The guy from Starbucks today who gave me an extra special wink
Coffee with half n' half and just enough sugar
The coolest supervisor (less stress)

Health, strength and a sound mind
Having my everyday needs met
Being blessed
Knowing how & when to say "thank you"

My loving partner & friend
All of my family & mom, today, for reminding me of my weight loss goals
My prayer book
Quiet time
