Thankful Thursday

Big Smiles!

If you’re new here, you may be wondering why a “gratitude” post on a writers’ blog? Because I believe when we stop to appreciate the good things in our lives, we are open to receiving inspiration for our work. Gratitude teaches us to acknowledge and accept the blessings we receive each day. This acknowledgment fills our well of self-confidence and general feeling of belonging. As writers, we need to step outside ourselves and connect with the energy around us. Give back.

Today, I am thankful for…

My husband getting home early enough to have dinner with us!

Free ebooks that get my creative juices flowing and mind workin’ overtime! One I just finished last night:×5/overnight-success/ I’m pretty psyched about some Big Ideas that emerged.

The young writers who are signing up for my Summer Studio – I thrive on their energy!

Books that make me think and renew my outlook on life. Right now, I’m reading Jillian Michaels’ UNLIMITED

Peapod!! Grocery delivery service, cause I HATE grocery shopping

Our new babysitter! She’s sweet, young and fun and the boys will be well taken care of.
