Wednesday List #20 – Reasons to Smile Today

It’s been a while since I’ve done a Wednesday list. Today, I’m thinking about all the good things that are going on in my world.

  1. When I woke up this morning, I read a beautiful post by a former classmate whose blog has become a regular read for me. Her thoughts on the ability to course correct were timely for me.
  2. I’m wearing pants I bought this weekend from REI when my friend Rey was in town. We went shopping because the pants I was wearing were so loose I could pull them down even when they were buttoned and zipped.
  3. When I walked out of the house this morning, I saw that a package from Tusker Trail sat on my porch. The package is paperwork and information for my Kilimanjaro trip.
  4. I had coffee this morning with a dear childhood friend who moved to my little town last summer.
  5. At coffee, one of the first things out of my friend’s mouth was, “You look like you’ve lost weight.”
  6. I had a fun brainstorming session this morning with a lawyer who has given me a ton of work during the last year and whose support made it possible for me to spend extended time in Portland last summer.
  7. Erin and I made plans to attend a Pose clinic on Monday night. I’ll get to refresh what I learned earlier this year about running form.
  8. My big boss (the man I’ve worked for most of my adult life) told me today that I’m getting too skinny.
  9. Marion Winik will be at Book People tonight, and I’m going. I’ve loved her writing since the early 1990s when her work appeared in the Austin Chronicle.
  10. In one week, I’ll be on my way to England and Germany for a family reunion. I’ll be hanging out with uncles, aunts and cousins, some of whom I’ve never even met.

It’s not all sunshine and roses in my world, but I shouldn’t complain. I’m very lucky, and I’m starting once again to be hopeful about what’s to come.

  1. Lindsey, I leave December 28. It seems like my friends who have done it consistently say that it’s a favorite experience. I’m incredibly excited.
