My 365 Grateful Project — Week #4

Find Something For Which to Be Grateful. Every Day. Take a Picture of It. Repeat 365 times

Well, it's week #4 and I've come to the realization— that there are different kinds of gratitude. I expected a lot of the kind where you just take stock of whatever awesome thing is happening ... so it doesn't go unnoticed. This week, though, I ran into another kind, which has to be described as more of a perception shift, than anything.

I was staring at my self healing mat (Day 25) and feeling sad about the glue and the lint and who knows what else was stuck all over it. I like to take care of my things and I don't like it when they get battered and worn. I found myself trying to justify buying a new one, even though this still works. And that's when it hit me. There was actually a reason to be grateful for its numerous blemishes. It's a tool of my profession AND my passion and it's been well used over the years. Well, doesn't that make me lucky? Yes. Yes, it does. I'm going to go give my mat some scrubbing and TLC now.
