Thanksgiving One - I've been noticing the Thanksgiving posts beginning to show up on Facebook and I have been neglecting this blog terribly. I don't like neglecting the blog and daily gratitude posts seem like a possible way to jump start, but not simple. I want to join that flow of conscious gratitude. I've done gratitude lists so many times they almost seem trite, and yet being thankful is never trite. I find myself a little stuck about how to proceed. So many blessings, so many good people in my life, so many resources, so many moments of beauty, learning, unexpected delight, such a great safety net. And I laugh at myself for over thinking and list my first blessing - I am thankful for my own cognitive complexity. Though I can think myself into a corner and have plenty of times, I can also think myself out and can enjoy many facets and aspects of the world of the world. I'm thankful for seeing through my own eyes, filtering through my own mind, being myself in this world.
