i’m just one stomach flu away from my goal weight

And this begins the week of fives…

  1. I am grateful that, even though I had basically the worst interview of my life tonight (seriously, I’ve never performed so poorly in an interview), I know that things always work out and if I’m meant to go to that school, I will get in.
  2. I am grateful that I can learn from the screwup so that when I have my next interview I will be that much more prepared.
  3. I am grateful that I had all of the Muddy Buddy ingredii (yes, it’s a word in my world) so that after I got off the phone with my interviewer, I could console myself with yummy treats.
  4. I am grateful for unexpected phone calls from dear friends.
  5. I am grateful for silly and totally unrealistic reality t.v. There’s nothing like The Bachelor to make me feel better about my own life.
Find the good — and praise it.

How wonderful it would be if we could help our children and grandchildren to learn thanksgiving at an early age. Thanksgiving opens the doors. It changes a child’s personality. A child is resentful, negative—or thankful. Thankful children want to give, they radiate happiness, they draw people.

  1. I, too, love The Devil Wears Prada!Thanks for your November gratitude posts–love ’em. It’s been fun to learn how to live in the moment and love the simple gifts.

  2. i only watched the last 30 minutes of the entire bachelor season, but i have to say, i thought the dude was lame. even before he up and dumped both girls. having watched the whole season, what did you think of him? would i have thought differently if i had seen more (i normally do watch the show, just somehow missed it this season)

  3. 1. i love that you quote lines from the devil wears prada2. my roommate and i watched the bachelor tonight too – and we were seriously yelling at the tv by the end of the show. it does make me feel better about my life too 🙂
