WEEKLY GRATITUDE JOURNAL: WEEK 1
Having seen this on a few different blogs of fellow bloggers & in the interest of staying positive and grateful during stressful situations, I’ve decided to begin a gratitude journal to remind me of the good things that have happened me and the good people in my life!
This Monday I’m grateful for:
- My incredibly clever oldest daughter who got a letter off commendation & her name in the school hall of fame from her principle last week for her good behaviour & appetite for learning. Only in Junior Infants but already setting high standards.
- The gift of laughter. I never stopped laughing at Neil Delamare’s “Delamarium” gig in the Tullamore Court Hotel Saturday night gone by. The guy is both really sharp and very funny! 😁🙏😂
- For completing my 1st ever competitive 5k on Sunday past over at Banagher A.C’s Offaly 5k Road Race in a very satisfactory time of 20:47. All the hard training starting to pay off!
That’s it for this week’s Gratitude Journal. Please tune in next Monday for more of the same.
RUNNING: LEARNING THE HARD WAY!
There’s some sound advice here for any of us runners on race day, seasoned or beginners. Happy race/running day to any of ye folks out there throdding the pavement today. 🙏🤞😁🏃♀️🏃♂️
LUCKY No. 13 ANNIVERSARY
Yes, you’ve read it right! 13 years ago, I signed up with WordPress. Hard to believe that amount of time has gone by! Though, to be honest, I didn’t really have a clue how to use it properly or tap into it’s blogging potential.In fact, I think it took me the 1st 10 years to figure out how to use it. 😛😉😂
And the next 3 years to see WordPress’s potential and begin to properly utilise it. In that time I’ve made some genuine new friends; read many wonderful poems & seen my own poetry/writing evolve from it’s traditional rhyming scheme into a more diverse; mature & insightful style.
Here’s to 13 more years of blogging; new poetry and enriching friendships. Sincere thanks to you all who’ve supported; followed & read my blog/poetry along the way. The blog wouldn’t be what it is without ye’re support & feedback! 🙏😊😁
