A bit of spring This time of year 40 degrees feels like hope and inspiration and some sort of saving grace. It’s a reminder of all things good. I’m enjoying it in all its sunny glory. Running in the cold has been really hard for me. Not physically hard, mentally. I just don’t like it, and I don’t want to do it anymore. It has made me feel like I don’t like running anymore. But a little sun and a little warmth and I have a deep sense of reassurance that this is still something I love very much.
Good working relationships This morning I met an old coworker for coffee and it was refreshing to catch up and talk shop. I think he is often misunderstood by a lot of people (I can understand how), but we developed a good repertoire early on. He thinks about things a lot differently than other people I have worked with and I really appreciate that we’re able to have intelligent discourse and I walk away with a new perspective, something I hadn’t thought of before.
All this snow I get to head to the woods next week, and with Monday off I have one thing on my mind: back-country skiing. My heart is bursting at the seams just thinking about cruising through those woods again.
Homemade pasta Much better than the alternative, I have discovered.
Reminders This week I had a few moments where I had to remind myself how good I have it, how certain things in my life are exactly how I dreamed they would be, and I’m grateful to have had a shift in perspective in the moment, when I needed it. This is something I’m continuing to work on.
When the universe takes over I know, it sounds all new-agey to say something like that. I have had these little pricks in my life over the past few weeks (months?) of things that I have been dreaming up and craving starting to make appearances. It’s rather magical, and I’m ready to receive these dreams I’ve been dreaming.
What are you grateful for?
