I recently came across an article called 20 Signs You’re Doing Better Than You Think You Are that made me feel profoundly thankful and grateful for many aspects of my life. I want to share a couple of them with you today, because I know they will resonate with this community. 🙂
#4. You have time to do something you enjoy. [Hello quilting!]
#14. You have a space of your own. It doesn’t even have to be a home or apartment (but that’s great if it is). All you need is a room, a corner, a desk, where you can create or rest at your discretion; where you govern who gets to be part of your weird little world, and to what capacity. It’s one of the few controls we can actually exert. [Thank you for being a part of my quilting world, I am glad you are here!]
#16. You’re interested in something. [Yes, definitely quilting!]
#18. You’re working toward a goal. Even if you’re exhausted and it feels miles away, you have a dream for yourself, however vague and malleable. [Hello WiPs!]
#19. But you’re not uncompromisingly set on anything for your future. Some of the happiest and best adjusted people are the ones who can make any situation an ideal, who are too immersed in the moment to intricately plan and decidedly commit to any one specific outcome. [Does anyone else read this and think it means it is ok to buy more fabric or start a new project? Because that is exactly what it is making me think about…]
Thank you for taking a pause with me each week to find the grace and gratitude for what quilting adds to our lives.
What are YOU thankful for this week? Here’s how to link up (link up open for 48 hours on Thursday and Friday US Pacific time):
- Link up any blog post the past week that discusses something that you are thankful for, no matter how big or small (Did you win a giveaway? Did your seam ripper save the day? Did a friend do something simple and kind that made your day?).
- To link an Instagram photo, click the Instagram icon at the bottom of the link-up screen, and use the URL of your IG feed as the link (for example, my URL is http://www.instagram.com/quiltingjetgirl). Please hashtag #QuiltyThankfulThursday.
- If you are linking to a blog post, please link back here to my blog somewhere in your post.
- Comment on at least a few of the other Thankful Thursday links, either IG or blog—commenting on the two or three links directly before yours works well to make sure everyone gets comments!
