Cold day, warm fire

Happy New Year! It’s Thankful Thursday!

In setting my intentions for this year, my #1 intention is to seek joy every day. And on Thursdays, I will happily share that joy with you.

January weather varies in north Texas. Some days are warm, in the 60’s, bright and sunny.

Other days are cold, cloudy in the 30’s.

We are currently experiencing the cold 🥶 kind of days. Cloudy, highs in the 30’s. Sleet, freezing rain yesterday and icy rain and possibly snow today!

I’m lucky in that I can work from home if needed. My work does not expect me to venture into bad weather. I just boot up my laptop and begin wherever I am. Nice.

It’s icy days that I am so very thankful for job flexibility, a warm fire to keep the house toasty and hot tea. Slowly sipped, of course. 😉

What are you thankful for today?


Who would like to join me in a thankfulness challenge?!? We kick off the new year with accountability to each other to remind ourselves to be thankful and appreciative of all that we are and all that we have! For 21 days!

Why 21 days?

Well, research has shown that habits can be formed in that amount of time!

Why form a thankfulness habit? Because it is a habit that can fundamentally shift your thoughts. And it is from your thoughts that your life is created.

Who’s with me?!?! PM me and we’ll get started! I hope you will join me in this challenge!
