More Good Things

One of the chapters I'm working on for my upcoming book highlights the power of gratitude and good-vibe lists as a tool for increasing your creative flow and pulling out of resistance, funks.   I believe the lists we keep define us in some way or another.  

Here's mine from today.  

Good things:  
Wordle's Word Cloud program that arranges text in graphic, cool ways
Time Balm concealer from Sephora
Jill's exciting writing project for Moms
Gincy's GrandDad's eggnog
(and...Christmas parties that supply babysitters in the basement)
Dena's sweet package of darling outfits for Daisy
The Mission soundtrack
The as-seen-on-TV Tobi steamer -- it works!
Flannel sheets 
Whisky class at Coopers on Friday -- turns out I'm not the single malt girl I imagined.  And Scotch can taste like ash.

Being all caught up.   with anything.

Darkness when I'm tired
Brightness when I seek clarity
Quiet when I'm overwhelmed
Flow when I can put it into form
Connection when I'm lonely
Opportunity when I'm ready
Generosity when I need it, or can give it
Perspective when I'm distraught
Peace, wherever I can find it, every day

Thank you for the Good Things you all bring to me, share with me.
