9 Things to be Thankful for Before You go to Bed at Night

20 Jan

It’s Thursday again, and time for another post! : ) Today I’m doing a list post. It is important to think about what is good in your life and your day, and a lot of people write diaries about all the things they are thankful for that day. That way, you go to sleep all happy, and chances are you’re going to wake up happy too.

So these are some of the smaller things that normally go unnoticed, but if you think about it, it does mean a lot.

Here are some of the things I am really happy about in my day today:

1. Waking up refreshed and knowing there is still quite a while until I have to go to school, and I can get ready without any stress is great. I’m thankful that I have this opportunity on Thursdays.

2. I am thankful for my boyfriend. He is such a sweetie, and he does so many little things for me, and I don’t know what I would do without him.

3. I am thankful for having a teddy bear and a blankie to hug in bed and an alarm clock that does not make the normal annoying sound that make you end up hating it. I love my alarm clock.

4. I am thankful for showers and warm water. I sometimes (actually most of the time) take it for granted, but some people actually don’t have this opportunity, and they are so missing out.

5. I am thankful that I have a family who, despite that dad is working far away and is only home in the weekends, and all other faults, stay close together, and love each other.

6. I’m thankful for people who say smile and say “thanks” in a nice tone when you hold the door for them.

7. I am thankful for having a lovely little black ball of fur to welcome me with a wagging tail and butt when I come home.

8. I’m thankful for my bed. Humans spend 1/3 of their life in bed, and I’m thankful that I have a cute, nice little twin bed, with a soft mattress and nice comforters to wrap myself into.

9. Lastly today, I’m thankful for cereal. For breakfast, lunch, or a snack before I go to bed. I could even eat it for dinner. It’s one of the best things ever. Especially that Special K thing with Red Barries.LOVE

10. …

I leave a black spot for #10 because I want you to fill out, in the comments section, what you are most thankful for today, whichever day you read this.

And if you don’t comment, at least just think about what would be on your “thankful”-list before you go to bed.

New Year’s Resolutions. We all have them, don’t we?

So, we all secretly make ourselves a little mental list of all our new year’s resolutions. And we all secretly know that we’ll never achieve them. I have a little list of my own. I started a competition with my dad, first one to get a six-pack. The one who loses has to buy clothes for the winner for 400 NOK. So naturally one of my new year’s resolutions is to work out every day. Another one is to do a couple of yoga exercises every day so I won’t get neck pains. It helps against the pains I have because of tense muscles, and it helps me de-stress and reenergize. I personally think yoga should be a class in school. I bet student’s grades will become much better. Anyway, that’s beside the point. Another new year’s resolution I made myself was to work on holding my body properly. Shoulders back and down, and head properly held straight above your shoulders and not several inches in front like a hunchback : P And lastly, probably the first one I won’t be able to keep – never put anything down in a place where it doesn’t belong. Actually, I’ve already failed that one. But the point is to get better and more tidy, right, and as long as I’m improving that’s what really matters right? Oh, and obviously the postaweek2011 challenge. These are the “official” ones anyway. The only problem with all of these is that I either didn’t start until just a couple of days ago, and not on the actual January 1st, or, I didn’t even come up with them until a couple of days ago. Next year I think my new year’s resolution will be “to make no new year’s resolutions.”

So, what are your new year’s resolutions? And how are those coming along?

I’m posting every week in 2011!

12 Jan

I’ve decided I want to blog more. Rather than just thinking about doing it, I’m starting right now. I will be posting on this blog once a week for all of 2011.

I know it won’t be easy, but it might be fun, inspiring, awesome and wonderful. Therefore I’m promising to make use of The DailyPost, and the community of other bloggers with similiar goals, to help me along the way, including asking for help when I need it and encouraging others when I can.

If you already read my blog, I hope you’ll encourage me with comments and likes, and good will along the way.

Signed,

Little Kitte
