Thursday Thirteen - Things I'm Thankful For

I don't usually play Thursday Thirteen, but Alice Audrey inspired me, and today is, after all, a day for counting one's blessings. Here are thirteen of mine:

  1. I like my job and feel challenged in a good way.
  2. I'm able to give opportunities to colleagues who might not have had them otherwise. 
  3. I have enough money. More would be helpful, but it's enough.
  4. I have a cute home in a pleasant community where I know (and like) my neighbors, and have no work commute.
  5. I'm healthy and mobile, in spite of recent setbacks. If I play this right, I'll return to dancing and running as a fitter, stronger person.
  6. I have a broad variety of competencies. I'm beginning to think this is more useful than being a standout talent, even though it's not as sexy.
  7. I have family, spouse and friends who respect my need for down time.
  8. I have plenty of stuff. More than I need, actually. Anyone want some stuff?
  9. I've lived long enough to see the bigger picture.
  10. I've let things go that needed to be let go.
  11. I've reconnected where I should've long ago, and it wasn't scary.
  12. What I thought were setbacks turned out to be opportunities.
  13. Life consistently gives me more than I ask for, less than I want, and always exactly what I need.

I can see from the list how much your career has given to you. It's a good thing.
