‘Tis the Season to Be Grateful

      No Comments on ‘Tis the Season to Be Grateful

I’ve seen on Facebook where many of my friends are already decorating for Christmas. I LOVE Christmas and can hardly wait to put up my trees, but I’m hesitant to fast-forward through November. Nestled between Halloween and Decking the Halls is an important moment to take a deep breath and just be thankful. Here at The Pink Typewriter Project, we are great believers in the importance of gratitude.

Time flies …cherish every moment

Time really does fly! My dad used to always tell me that the older you get, the faster time goes. I dismissed this idea in my 20’s, but as I got into my 30’s I felt time speeding up and now in my 40’s a year seems to hurry by at light speed. Those older and much wiser than I am tell me it will continue to go quicker, but I can hardly imagine it going faster than it does now although I am wise enough to know they are right.

Are you missing your acre of diamonds?

I think many of us struggle with identifying the need for an actual change. We are not outwardly unhappy, but we feel like we are drifting and that something is missing in our lives. We are searching for something and we believe we must make a big change to find it. But do we need to go looking for our acre of diamonds somewhere else or is it already staring us in the face? Does our pursuit of happiness necessitate a big change or does it just require us to be mindful of how we can look at our current situation in a different way?

And Because Sometimes Mountains are Mountains

Dana wrote a great post yesterday about what she learned last week as she caught herself making mountains out of molehills. Well, I completely share Dana’s tendency to do just that — to overreact and make things harder than they really need to be. And I am grateful that the Pink Typewriter journey is helping me at least recognize when I’m doing it even if I haven’t quite been able to stop the reactions all together. For me, though, last week held a completely different lesson.
