Gratitude by Khuong Pham                                                                                                                                                                                 More

Lately I am humbled by all of the good things in my life. Is everything perfect? Nope. Does it matter? Also nope. I have been trying to remind myself every day  to look at the little things and be as grateful for them as I would be for winning the lottery.

So today I am grateful for a few things in no particular order.

My oldest child returned home safe and sound from her first year away at college. Thrilled beyond words to have her home for the summer... even though I had to get her to move her car at 7:30 this morning. My house and my heart feel full again.

I had a little fender bender last week and thankfully walked away. A little sore for a few days and my car needs some repair but it just struck me how quickly life can change. And how stupid Atlanta drivers can be. Grateful that it is just a minor inconvenience in the scheme of things.

My ex and I are getting a long so well it's scary. Making the decision to just not fight with him has been a huge turning point. We just co-exist, like friends. Who knew?

The guy I have been dating is so NOT what I was looking for but turns out he's perfect for right now. Neither of us want serious but we both want someone to do stuff with. I mean, this is perfect, he's willing to go anywhere I want to go. Plus he helped me paint my kitchen, trimmed some hedges and is fixing my gas grill. Also he exceeds my height requirement and we laugh a lot. Oddly grateful for Tinder.

So grateful that I got the opportunity to coach another friend through her first Whole30. Her results were amazing and I feel that much more confident in knowing that I can achieve this goal of being a successful Whole30 Coach. Now to finish my testing!!

My own health goals for the year are still on track and we are 5 months in.This is a record for me I think. Grateful that I'm finally in a place where I can give myself a little grace and know that it's not about being perfect every day.

And then there is the beautiful spring weather, all of the flowers and trees blooming, my amazing friends and family, my good health, happy kids, cauliflower crust pizza, Perfect bars and wine. I am always grateful for wine.

Happy Monday!
