My Appreciation Journal: Day 184


I am focused on me. I am strong. I love and am loved dearly. I am blessed. I live in success. I have 幸せ (happiness)~

I am grateful for the luxurious sleep in my soft, warm, and clean bed~ I was able to sleep to my heart and body’s content before getting up lazily for the day (or shall we say afternoon, lol)~

I am grateful for the beautiful weather with the “just-right” temperature 🙂

I am grateful for the sweet-smelling air and the lovely view on the bus ride~

I am grateful for getting my application submitted on time~

I am grateful for being able to pick up my tax receipts

I am grateful for the special buses that got me to my station in spite the train shut-downs

I am grateful for the filling dinner tonight~

I am grateful for fitting into all the clothes I bought on my Asian trip a few months back~ I was not able to try on some of the things I bought then due to store policies prohibiting customers fitting clothes, and I have been so busy with the move that I never had time to try on them on until this weekend. Thankfully, they all fit perfectly, even the extra-small sized ones, phew~! I’ve been a little concerned as I’ve been gaining weight due to eating too much to fuel my needy, stressed-out brain over the past couple months 🙂

I am grateful for my registration process and re-scheduling requests for the conferences going smoothly~! I was not able to take advantage of the early-bird registration for one convention due to potential scheduling conflicts (and partly because I was so busy that it slipped my mind), but thankfully the one convention that still allowed the early-bird rate was the more pricier one~! This means that the only one for which I could not partake the special rate was the cheaper option but only cost me $20 more 🙂 Also, both of my requests to re-schedule my presentations were granted quickly by the moderators – yay!

I am grateful for the “full” day with plenty of goodies to take home, just like the squirrel with the cheek full of goods~

To my him, my beloved familiar:

Thank you for our loving relationship

Thank you for our happiness

Thank you for having the courage to embrace our love

I passed by the mall today and saw that model in the ad who looked like you when you did your professional shot~ He looks like a fine fellow, but to me you stand out even more: You were so, so handsome when you did yours, and looked so confident~ I smiled when I was reminded how much more you really are in person. I love you 🙂 20150412_123125
