Thankfulness for the Good Life

I just laid down. I gave a big sigh. And I actually said out loud: “I have such a good life.”

Then I remembered that I hadn’t written my Thankfulness post today.

It’s funny. It’s kinda tough to express WHY I think that I have such a good life. From the outside, the major themes and happenings on my life’s timeline may seem tragic to some. But that isn’t true.

Take today, for instance. I slept for 13 hours last night and woke up at 5:30 a.m. feeling great. So I got up, made coffee, ate my favorite chemo recovery breakfast of toasted English muffin with gobs of melted butter and peanut butter, and enjoyed the sunrise. I started cranking out some work that needed to be done that the Universe has brought my way despite my lack of employment right now. Work that isn’t even work. It’s fun stuff. Media stuff. PR stuff. I’m telling you, my dream job would be doing exactly what I got to do this morning for web development and event promotion.

I seriously kicked some butt today… all in my pj’s on a beautiful Sunday morning, without any other responsibilities. It was very satisfying.

To top off my day, right after finishing everything, my homies (as if on cue) showed up at my front door for a surprise little porch party and walk in my friggin’ amazing neighborhood. I know I talk about my rockstar homies and neighborhood all the time, but you would too if you lived here.

And tomorrow, the kids are off of school and get to spend the whole day with me and their Uncle Teresa. We are planning on working on some school projects, going to Midtown to walk around to pass out some flyers for LunaFest, and play a little cornhole.

So, do you see why I have such a good life? I do. Everyday.

Love, Livin’ the Good Life
