Appreciate What You Have...

Hey Friends!

I hope this day finds you well and healthy :)

Now that I'm back home after a long sprint of being gone...

I'm happy to be surrounded by all things known!

I missed my babies ;)
Yogi and Zippy Bear are missing from this picture.

If anything...

Being away definitely has a way of making you appreciate more of what you have...

Be it...

Your own bed, to your very own utensils, to...

Those very little things that make your home, home.

Having said that...

I don't think I need to tell you...

How GrateFUl I've been feeling.  

I decided to get crafty yesterday, and spread some love, on our walls.

No doubt...

I've been enjoying spending quality time with SuperFit, my family...

And of course...

The puppies!

The three amigos.

And in addition to that...

I've been loving being back at the gym! (And getting back into my own groove of things!)

Post (my new) Glutes Workout.
I love it when Coach SuperFit trains me :)

All to say...

In those moments when you feel like you are missing more of the things you believe would make your life more FUlfilling...

Pause for a second (or longer, much longer) and see...

How much you truly have (be it tangible or intangible) and...

Have a moment of gratitude to show some appreciation! (Inwardly and/or outwardly.)

As much as I do not like the cold temperatures...
I do appreciate the beauty it brings forth.

Questions FU You...

What is something/someone you appreciate right now?
Do you practice gratitude, or is it something that comes naturally?

More Ways You Can Follow Me:


  1. it made me laugh when you said about your own silverware.. whenever we go out to eat with my in-laws, my MIL always jokes how the forks are too big and she wishes she had her own!

  2. I'm actually on a short trip today. I'm grateful that I have a direct flight home that doesn't go through Texas!

  3. Trying to appreciate nights when I can actually sleep! It's those little things that I've come to value in time :)

  4. i appreciate a slow morning. Needed.

  5. I LOVE THIS!! I had a similar feeling this weekend. I have admittedly been struggling to face the holidays without my Dad. So I needed to refocus, and remember even though things have been hard I am still very blessed.

  6. I have been working really hard to practice gratitude more over the past few months. It has had a big, positive impact on my attitude and outlook!

  7. I appreciate the time spent with family. I also appreciate my husband who has been more than patient with me with all of our recent struggles.

  8. I appreciate ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING in my life! There isn't ONE THING I do not appreciate!!!!!!! I most importantly appreciate my family and all the support they give me!!!! :)

  9. I didn't you realize you have 3 puppies. I am grateful that I was able to spend one of the Bestest days in my young daughter's life. It was neat to see her cry tears of joy.

  10. I have So much to be thankful for! Great post!

  11. WE are on the same wavelength! :)

  12. I never realized you had another 2 dogs I always thought it was just Teddy Bear. The others are cute too :)

    I write a gratitude journal everyday, so I put down 5 things I was grateful for in that day, sometimes I put more but I always put a minimum of 5.

  13. Love your doggie collage! Great idea.

  14. Gratitude is something I need to implement more of- thank you for these constant reminders to do so! Glad your back to the norm now- although those niagara falls views were amazing!

  15. Aww, the puppies are so cute!
    I practise gratitude every day, but meanwhile it comes more and more naturally. Today I am thankful for a warm house since it's below Zero now, BUT the sun is out!
