Goal of Being Grateful

Last day of 2021. I woke up this morning so incredibly grateful for this past year for all I learned.

I learned that I don’t necessarily need a gym to workout. I walked 965km, learned Tai Chi, practiced yoga and lifted weights weekly. 🧘🏼

I learned that we don’t need to (and more importantly shouldn’t) wait for the government to do “something” about injustices in our country by starting the Circle Connections for Reconciliation with others, meeting and working with absolutely incredible people, Indigenous and non-Indigenous. 🙏🏼

I learned to appreciate nature even more by going out and listening to the wind, the trees and the birds every day. 🌳

I learned to embrace being an introvert and not feel guilty about how much I enjoy my own company and being quiet. ☺️

I learned just how valuable family and friends are and that phone or video conversation can be just as good as in-person if you accept it. 💞

While visiting my son and his girlfriend in Nova Scotia this past year, I learned just how much my son has grown into a kind, loving and independent man and how richer my life is being Mom 2.0 to his partner. 👩‍❤️‍👨

I learned how much in love I am with the man I married 20 years ago and how good life is with him. 💕

Thank you 2021 and welcome 2022. My goal is simply to remember this and to be grateful every single day. 💖
