There's Always Something To Be Grateful For

Alternatively titled, "There's Always Something For Which To Be Grateful."

It's the last half of the last day of the month and I haven't even opened this blog since last I wrote. I'm exhausted and demoralized and downright angry. I'm also getting up and putting one foot in front of the other because it's all I know how to do.

Rather than bemoan the bad I'm going to bang out a quick gratitude list (typo - LUST) and be proud of the accomplishment.

I am grateful for...

  • Good books
  • My freaking awesome dog
  • Friends who love and care for my dog
  • Friends who love and care for the plays I write
  • The opportunity to act
  • Plenty of clients
  • Decent health insurance
  • Good TV shows
  • Delicious chocolate
  • Weird theatre
  • Having laundry facilities in my building
  • New York freaking City!
  • The barista who smiled at me SO HARD today that I couldn't fail to respond
  • Modern allergy medication
  • Modern pain medication
  • Modern dentistry
  • Friends who have a sense of humor
  • The entire concept of the podcast
  • The internet and its ability to keep me close to people I would otherwise not be so close to
  • Clients who keep coming back
  • Clients who "get it"
  • Penelope Brackett and all her techniques
  • That one day we got to drink in the sunshine and watch the clouds
  • My mattress
  • My eyesight
  • My ability to multi-task
  • My memory
  • Warm clothing
  • An apartment of my own
  • Whatever sense of self-control I still possess
  • Probably, hopefully, a million other things that I've forgotten right now but will remember as they pop up in everyday life.

What are you grateful for?
