Today was a good day. A very good day. Nothing extraordinary happened, but, in its normalcy, it was a beautiful day. Given that, I decided to participate in “thankful Thursdays” today.

I’m thankful I had a good workout today: Tuesdays run was not good. At all. I felt a bit disheartened, and my fears start to run a bit out of control after a run like that. Today’s run was good. I ran 3.5 miles on the treadmill, alternating between reading headlines of the news and watching the snow fall outside. It was beautiful, and the time flew by.

I’m thankful for the snow today: I’m not, however, thankful for all the accidents that happened in the area as a result. The snow was beautiful, and I enjoyed it from the comfort of the gym, briefly on the drive home, and while stretching and foam rolling in my apartment.

I’m thankful I’m sitting inside a warm Starbucks writing this right now: It’s chilly outside today, and I’m cheap and keep my apartment cold. I’m thankful Starbucks has free internet where I can curl up with a delicious drink, the heat, and my lap top!

I’m thankful for the chance to write professionally: I’m working on something right now that is planned to be published sometime this year! I’m excited for it, and I love getting to write about the things I’m passionate about!

I’m thankful that Thursday nights are the start to my weekend this month: January means a shortened work week for me. I don’t like this because I love my job, but I do like this because it gives me more free time to work on my list of to-do items!

I’m thankful for the delicious meal at The Melting Pot this past Monday: I’ll have a post soon (tomorrow?) dedicated to this meal. It was exceptional and a fun experience!

Now you get to share! What are you feeling thankful for today? Do you enjoy working at coffee shops?
