Another month in 2022 is in my rearview mirror on my road to express thankfulness. This adventure sometimes becomes a challenging task, but I’m discovering so many things to be thankful for each day. Focusing on the positive despite all the tragedy in the world makes me happy. It motivates me to work toward a positive change and being grateful drives away fear. I can see so many potholes in the road, but I start my day searching for the blessings in my life. These events or things might seem small and insignificant, but they add up to a giant pile of happiness at the end of the road. I am inviting you to come along for the ride. Why don’t we all travel the road of gratefulness in June? This post covers day 193 of my 365 days of thankfulness.
Day 193 of my 365 Days of Thankfulness
On day 193 of my 365 days of thankfulness, I am grateful for the creative process of working on one of my projects. I am what is called a panster because I don’t work from an outline. My stories will start with an idea and evolve until they reach an end. I like going with the flow. The characters direct me in the direction they want to go. Sometimes Word Daddy gives me a little help. He’s my Muse. He sometimes goes on strike because he wants to get paid. That may never happen if I don’t manage to get published. He’s shown up big time on the current book I’m working on right now. The idea came out of the blue. I’m not even sure how this one will end. It will probably turn into one of those series before I’m finished. I spend the morning with these characters because they have a lot to say.
This old lady is happy to be writing
This old lady has learned thanksgiving is a matter of choice. Don’t let anyone tell you differently. Even in dark places, it is good to seek the light. My blessings may not be the same as yours because I’m old. I bet if you dig deep, you can come up with something to be thankful for today. Don’t neglect to see the good things before your face because you hear the world is falling apart. Let me tell you a secret. The world always falls apart when you focus on the doom and gloom. You won’t always find thankfulness an easy road, but it’s an adventure we can all take together. What are you thankful for today? Leave a comment, and bless my heart. I am not being sarcastic when I say that. I could use the encouragement as much as the next person.
