Gratitude

Happy Workout Wednesday! Mine isn't so happy right now since I'm starting it by spending the night at LAX :(


The 2 hour bus ride from Santa Barbara unexpectedly took 4.5 hours, so I missed my flight to DC, missed standby on the last flight out by 1 spot, and won't be able to get out until tomorrow morning. 

While this is definitely straining my efforts to avoid being an asshole, I'm still trying to keep up with the thanksgiving spirit by focusing on everything I'm grateful for. 


I'm super grateful for all the friends that have kept me company doing non-physical activities during my injury, especially since I didn't think I had any friends outside of volleyball! I also really appreciate all the support from my blog friends.

And, even though I'm still pretty mad I can't be as active as I normally am, I'm still really thankful that my body is able to do all the things it does for me every day. 


Q: How do you practice gratitude instead of getting super annoyed at everything? What are you thankful for this year?

Now on to the party!

  2. Oh no! I am so sorry to hear about your travel issues. Fingers crossed that things go safely and smoother. Personally, I practice gratitude by letting others know how greatly I appreciate having them in my life. I'm also doing the #30DaysOfGratitude challenge by posting a daily gratitude quote and what I'm tankful for each day on my page wall.

  3. Oh boy I get annoyed so quickly but I think it is due to the fact I just have a short temper. I have to work on that but I feel you - getting stuck in an airport when you are ready to come home is a bummer and would have annoyed me too but wooosaahhhh. It could always be worse. #wowlinkup

  4. I'm sorry to hear about your travel woes! I'm still practicing patience because I'm "very passionate" by nature. I usually take a breath and a walk away from the situation if I can.

  6. I am so with you on the injury!!! I am sorry you are forced to be less active than usual but I am glad you are allowing time to heal without increasing the injury. It has been really difficult finding things I *can* do and with that I will send positivity your way for healing.
    PS, sorry about the flight.

  14. I love the Pooh picture. I won't lie, I get caught up in life's frustrations. But when I take on the attitude of gratitude, I'm reminded of how blessed I am, to the point that I'm completely humbled. It's true, gratitude changes everything. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving! #wowlinkup
