Until you have ran a mile in my gym shoes…

Image

It is time to retire my gym shoes. I have had them for 7 years now. It became real yesterday when I couldn’t understand why my feet/socks were getting wet as I was walking to the Y. I have a tendency to wear items that I adore until they fall apart. I’m currently not motivated to go shopping nor have I financially planned for a new pair of running shoes – they ain’t cheap you know?!  So here I am at the beginning of the year to begin a new which includes a new pair of fancy footwear. Perhaps, I will bronze the sneakers pictured to remind me of the miles I’ve traveled in them and to keep me inspired with my ‘fitness flow.’

Until the next time – I adore you for reading my blog,

The 2013 Gratitude Jar

Image

My color theme for this year is red. While looking on http://www.etsy.com I came across these beautiful hand-painted Moroccan inspired vases/jars to use as my Gratitude Jar. I’m inspired by beauty so this find was such a treat for me.

Every time something wonderful happens in 2013, I have begun to write it down and put it in a Ziploc bag for now until I receive my jar. On New Year’s Eve (Tuesday, 31 December 2013) , I will open the jar and review all the gifts/Blessings/grace I received this year.

What a wonderful way to practice mindful gratitude every day.

“Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.” -William Arthur Ward
