I'm grateful for…

  • A husband who gives me the freedom to be and who supports my decision to not have babies
  • The ability to enjoy “me” time, guilt free, without wishing the husband was with me or feeling guilty about ignoring my “wifely duties”
  • Friends who make me feel special
  • Pepo, who fills our life with joy (she’s our cat, not our baby, in case you’re wondering! ;))
  • Being able to laugh at myself
  • Not feeling my age – no, I’m not that old, but a lot of people I knew were depressed when they hit their 30s; I was excited to turn 30! 😀
  • Taking responsibility for my weight and making sure I work out at least 3-4 times a week (yeah, that’s a big deal for me, BIG!)
  • A loving and supportive family, who have been there for me always. They may not have always supported all that I did, but they came around to my point of view anyways!
  • Being in a secure and happy place – I do have the occassional mood swing, but overall, I’m happy with who I am and where I am

So, what are you grateful for?

  1. Really nice things to be grateful for.

    Me, I think I am grateful for having Crazy in my life, and Sher too… I’m grateful for my ability to break away from the unpleasant and start from the scratch; My ability to keep my head when the situation demands it; and my independence-emotional, financial and societal 🙂

    Took me some to earn each of them.

  2. Very nice post! I may be inspired to write one similar to yours – perhaps it will encourage others to realize what they have to be grateful for! So that possibly being the case, I won’t spoil the surprise by telling you what I’m grateful for just yet 😉

  4. I’m with you. I’m really grateful for my partners, who really do love me exactly as I am, not as some wifey-slave, or someone to do things for them.
