As a suggestion from a reader (what?! I have readers??), I’m going to try to incorporate themes into some of my posts. Not all of them, because I LOVE free-flow writing. But we’re going to try it out today.
So today is “Thankful Thursday”. I chose this theme because I <3 alliteration and the word “thankful” reminds me of Thanksgiving and I love to eat. So “Thankful Thursday” is born!
I could go on and on and on about what I’m thankful for so I’m gonna try to focus on one cohesive thought: I am thankful for choices.
Yes choices. And because I also <3 lists, here is a list of choices I made today that I am thankful for.
- I chose to eat breakfast today. A lot of people don’t have that luxury. So when the time came to eat or skip, I chose to eat (strawberry waffle with PB, in case you were wondering).
- I chose to drive to work and sit in traffic. I could have taken the bus but chose to drive. Taking the bus might have been easier in the long run on my anorexic wallet but still, I had the choice. I chose to drive.
- I chose to eat lunch with a friend today. I did not have to eat by my lonesome self but was able to share a meal with a friend. And that meal was DELISH! I had corn chowder and a tuna melt w/ fresh veggies on a jalepeno bagel. Like I said. DELISH.
Food is from Fresh Cafe on Queen St in Honolulu, in case you were curious!
So all in all, today I am thankful for freedom to make choices in my life, the food in my cupboard, the car parked outside my apartment, and the great company I find in my friends.
Like I said, I could go on and on but we’ll save that for another week.
Please share- What is one thing you ate/saw/did/had today that you are thankful for?
