A Bay Area grateful list on this holiday

For many of us in the United States we celebrate Thanksgiving today.

I try to remember to be thankful and grateful every day in my life.

And today  I am going to write about it.

One of the GFG! November Monthly Challenges is the jar project.

Throughout the month I have been adding slips of paper every day to my mason jar (see picture to the left) with positive things I have experienced.

Most of the things I have been grateful for this month have been small. But it’s the small and simple things that we sometimes forget about.

Since this will be my last Thanksgiving in the Bay Area (as we are heading to Portland in the new year) I thought I would focus today’s grateful/thankful list mostly on the Bay Area.

(That doesn’t mean I am not grateful for my family and the friends who don’t live here and lots of other stuff. I am just getting nostalgic about leaving the Bay Area.)

I am grateful/thankful for:

I feel very lucky and grateful for the life I do have.

There are so many things I am thankful for.

Such as: my health; my husband; my family; my friends; my job (there was a chance I could have been laid off this year); my amazing co-workers/friends; the supportive people in my life; my amazing readers/friends/supporters of Go Fit Girl! …

The list goes on and on.

But what I really want to reflect on today is yoga, my practice, my teachers, my teacher training, the discovery I am continually making and my growth in my practice.

Yoga is such a big part of my life. It touches so many aspects of each day in my life.

Here are some things on my what I am grateful for when it comes to my yoga … Continue reading
