Being Thankful

I complain a lot. Don't we all? It's one of those things you don't mean to do, but find yourself doing. You wake up with the intention of having a great day, then on your way to work some a-hole doesn't use a turn signal and screws up the traffic pattern.  See what I did there?

With Thanksgiving just a few weeks away I want to be more thankful. I had a great mentor when I was still living in Washington, D.C. who had me think of three things that I'm grateful each day. Sometimes I let the negative things consume me too much and I forget about all the wonderful things that happen.

With today being November 4th, I'm already a few days behind. I'll be posting what I'm thankful for each day starting tonight on Instagram.  Make sure to follow me here at @1hotredhd.  Here's some catching up ~

Sunday, November 1st
I am grateful for wonderful company. A friend of mine came over Sunday evening just to hang out. We watched a little TV, I packed for my Dallas trip and then I made us a yummy dinner. It was very relaxing and comfortable and just fun.

Monday, November 2nd
I am grateful for the super sweet flight attendant who gave me a bag of chex mix for FREE!  I was sitting in the very last row of the airplane and was starving by the time the beverage cart came around. He heard me ask about the price of snacks and he just dropped the bag of chex mix on my tray.  Thanks dude!

Tuesday, November 3rd
While at the Rejuvenate 2015 trade show I was honored to hear Beck Weathers speak about his experience climbing Mount Everest.  You might be familiar with the movie Everest that is out in theaters right now.  Beck is one of the men in that story and one of the survivors of that climb and he told us his amazing story. I'll share more about this life threatening encounter on Monday's post, but it was incredible. It makes you grateful for waking up each day!

Starting tonight, for the remainder of November, I'll be posting what I'm thankful for each day.  Make sure to follow me on Instagram - @1hotredhd. I'll be using the hashtag #ImThankful2015. Please join in with me if you like!

Each day is a new experience and you'll never know what you'll find!
