There is so much to be thankful for and I love the idea of practicing gratitude every day. Of course this can be challenging on off days, or grumpy days, but all the more reason to flex your gratitude muscle. 

The other day I was in a very difficult yoga class - let's start with the fact that I am at least 20 years older than most of the other people, but on top of that, we were attempting a pose I'd never even heard of called "Fallen Angel" - an insane arm balance with legs shooting up in the air and face tilted toward the ground. I was struggling, frustrated, annoyed, but then all of a sudden "A Tribe Called Quest"- my fav hip-hop band - came over the speakers and I was so grateful for the burst of good music that it boosted my confidence, catapulted my energy level and made me believe that this pose was possible. It wasn't, of course, but that doesn't mean it's not in my future.

not me, but maybe me one day?
Here of some pics from last night's Thanksgiving. So grateful for family, friends and right now my sister's pumpkin bread - dessert last night, breakfast this morning.

What's on your gratitude list?
