I’m thankful that I’m taking more time to be creative lately. I painted this “Love” canvas over the weekend. I got it in my Creatives Swap Box and I loved it.

I’m thankful for A Different World on Netflix. I really love that show and I’m back to binging on it again.

I’m thankful that I finally finished reading Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. It was such an inspiring book. I loved the Pray section the most. I’ve struggled with meditation and reading about her struggle with meditation was comforting. I just need to be consistent with my meditation and see how it works out when I’m consistent.

I’m thankful that Curly Nikki is releasing her new book for FREE. You can download it here.

I’m thankful that my nephew came over and mowed our yard yesterday. It’s been really hot and I have not wanted to mow my yard in 90 degree weather.

I’m thankful that my daughter is so loving. She loves hugs & kisses and sitting in my lap.

      Hey, for me it’s hard to stop thinking during meditation. But I like the sit, be still, and smile meditation that the medicine man suggested that she do.

      I was excited too when I first learned that it was on Netflix too. I’m wishing that Netflix would make A Different World reboot and I want DeWanye and Whitley back at Hillman šŸ™‚
