31 Days of Gratitude – Day 26

What a peaceful day! Thankfully it was a lovely cool day so i was able to spend it under the covers with a good book. What a pleasure! I haven’t been able to do that in ages.

Tomorrow I go back to reality. I have to start exercising again. I feel like a slug😜. I also have a supplementary exam to prepare for which requires a lot of reading so I had better get started. I am really grateful for another opportunity to write this exam and plan on aceing it this time. It’s also time to seriusly start reviewing the year that was and make plans for the year to come. I am looking forward to this.

Lastly, I am so grateful for the cats that keep choosing to visit our home. Yes I feed them but I am aware that cats can just walk away when it suits them so I am very grateful that they still choose us. They have really kept me company this holiday. Today I put on a Youtube video for the kittens. They were running wild so I did it to calm them down. They were fascinated. I swear it’s like having a bunch of toddlers in the house when they pop in…

Well that’s it for today. Hope you had a good one.

31 Days of Gratitude – Day 17

Today I did one of my favourite things in this world…I bought books! 😜😁 I have way too many already and I may never get to read them all but it just gives me such great pleasure to acquire more. I didn’t meet my target this year of reading 50 books but that’s ok. I enjoyed the 21 books that I did get to read this year.

Some of my favourites have been:

  • Glucose Revolution: The life changing power of balancing your blood sugar by Jessie Inchauspé. She simplifies the science so well. I just need to be more disciplined about incorporating her hacks into my day.
  • The Power of Positive Thinking by Norman Vincent Pearl. An oldie but still relevant. I like the uplifting yet down to earth style that it is written in. The advice was much needed as well.
  • The Cabin at the End of the Train: A story about pursuing dreams by Michael V. Ivanov. A simple yet inspiring story
  • Velvet Dragonflies by Billy Chapata – this is a book of poetry takes on a journey back to self. I am halfway through but will be done by tomorrow. I love how he strings words together that can touch the very core of you.
