Leaving this up as my last post before thanksgiving isn’t working for me. So instead let me list a small subset of the many things I’m thankful for instead of whining about…
-I am thankful for my legs. They haven’t given up on me yet even when I ask them to do crazy things that no one should back to back. Also? Kinda HAWT.
-I am thankful for my awesome husband who is just awesome. For example, one day on Facebook, he just exclaimed that he has the bestest wife ever. When asked (because I certainly didn’t remember doing anything amazing), he just said he was thinking of how awesome I was and wanted everyone to know. That’s only one of the myriad of ways he is wonderful, but it’s the one to comes to mind first today.
-I am thankful to have an awesome family that I get to spend all day with tomorrow, eat turkey, and play card games.
-I am thankful for my health. I have nothing that keeps me from enjoying each and every day to the fullest and doing any damn thing I want to do. I’m thankful for the funds to be able to continue to improve it through healthy, natural, and organic eating, athletic equipment, chiropractor, doctor, and dentist visits, nutritionist visits, gym memberships, and race fees.
-I’m thankful for the opportunity in racing to push myself to the limits. I think it makes me a better person in my life to be able to be as mentally and physically strong and challenge those boundaries each and every time I toe the starting line.
-I’m thankful that on an average moment, the emotion I’m feeling is probably somewhere pretty close to JOY. Through hard work and surrounding myself with awesome and amazing people, I have built a life that feels sometimes like I should pinch myself and it should go away, because it simply MUST be a dream. I’ve stopped doing that (the bruises are a bitch) but I try never to lose sight of how amazing I have it, even if I’m having a *moment*.
Happy Turkey Day everyone, and remember…
What are you most thankful for?
