right around july this year, my blog really took a turning point. i have fine-tuned what it is i want this blog to represent.  i have collected some dedicated readers, and i’ve also created a dedicated set of specific blogs i post each corresponding day of the week.  it feels nice to have some structure.

if i had time, i’d post 7-days a week.  and hopefully very soon i will be able to do that.  my “day job” is going great, and my foto job is starting to take a turn as well, for the better.  i am digging all the positive change happening in my life lately.  i’m so beyond grateful…

and since march when i began this blog – i’ve created a cool 127 posts, stacked up over 250 followers, and graciously received over 1,000 likes.

so… THANKS! 🙂

i appreciate you.

and you know what else i appreciate?

– all 6 of my senses

– fresh, clean air

– a comfortable bed to sleep in

– HEALTHY FOOD – every single day.  i’m so thankful for good food!!!!!!

– my cats

– a great roommate

– a handful of really really amazing and wonderful souls whom i get to share this journey called life with…

the other night i was randomly in the “mood” to meditate… and i put on some piano music i love and i got really really into it.  i had incense burning, which i find actually helps my spirit… it was mostly just an outpouring of gratitude.  once i started being thankful for little things – like my health… which ain’t so little, but when is the last time you actually audibly said “THANK YOU FOR MY HEALTH!!”   – ?!?!?

try it sometime… then see what happens.

for me, i started crying and i couldn’t stop saying things i was thankful – including a distinguished palate… i appreciate that i can appreciate good food.  i mean, really.  and then i started being thankful for my senses, and for a sound mind, and for good judgement, and a kind heart… and then i couldn’t stop.

just try it.  when you wake up, just say out loud at least 3 things you are thankful for.  try to switch it up each day, and give at least 3 more each time…

it’s a simple thing that is vastly effecting my life for the better 🙂

    You know, you are one person that’s inspiring me to eat a bit healthier… which I do, but I should, how can I say? Put some more effort into it? 🙂 And congrats on the success you are achieving 🙂

    I want to say thank you to Audrey Michelle for showing me to look at the world in a different light and see the sunshine as opposed to the darkness and the clouds
    I am seeing more love
