Gratitude with TBB

Thinking things in the sky

  • Here’s the thing. I spend a lot of time fretting about the blog. Am I putting too much of my life out for all to see?  What will my kids think of having the going-ons of their world broadcasted for all to read? Who the hell cares what I do anyway ?
  • But then I have these moments that show me how much more blogging has been for me than a simple hobby to document my life. It has brought some pretty amazing people into my world and has also introduced me to different areas and customs and traditions and in its own weird way it has made this world feel like a smaller, cozier place.
  • What I’ve come to realize is that when I write, share and record my life, it provides me with a medium to really process my thoughts- even if some of them are on trivial things like whether or not the dress looks good with the fur vest. I find myself thinking and considering and reflecting more when I try to think of ways to turn something into a blog post. And in all honesty- when I write down my truths, it takes a load off of my back and makes me feel a million times better. 
  • So here I am, commencing descent onto Las Vegas and as I look out over the mountains of some state (seriously how do you keep track of all of them) I find my heart being filled with gratitude. My worries seem miles away and it’s just the break I needed.
  • I am amazed that I can meet up with women from across the continent for a fun weekend. For the record- this weekend we have two Saskatoonians, a Barrie gal, a New Yorker and a Seattlite. I also may have made up a few words. We are gathering for A weekend that will be filled with laughter and joy, and zero awkwardness even if we have to share a bed. I’m with women I feel like I’ve known forever and who have grabbed a big piece of my heart despite the fact that I don’t get to see them often. 
  • Cheers to a weekend away with the girls, all because of a little blog.
