I am often so stingy with myself- perhaps it is related to my recovering perfectionism, my constant inner critic telling me I don’t deserve nice things because I haven’t been good enough. Or perhaps it is from my scarcity complex reminding me how little income I’ve faced before and that I should be constantly scared of being back in that situation.

I wanted something cheerful to post today to continue the celebration of the resurrection so today is all about joy. I am thankful for so many things- my family, a roof over my head and food in my house, clean water, but I wanted to make a list that focused more on specific things I am thankful for that are “everyday” and bring me a deeply personal joy, even if they are joys shared by many other people I know and love. So without further ado: Continue reading
