Day 2 – 365grateful

I would like to start off today by saying that in no way is this project an “order if importance” kind of thing. If I get too wrapped up in worrying about being judged for what I find myself grateful for on any given day – it’s not going to be honest or authentic. Two of many things I value very highly. So if I’m grateful for a grape slushy or a good shampoo before say…penicillin you get why.

People Who Make Me Laugh
Thank you friends for making me laugh and having fun being yourself without caring what you look like. I love people who are “all in”. Maybe I can be more like you guys when I grow up.

Day 1 – My 365grateful Project

Today is the first day I embark on my very own 365grateful Project. The Original 365 Grateful Project had been something I was only vaguely aware of until my super talented friend shared some videos with me, introducing me to a very talented filmmaker Hailey Bartholomew.
I connected with her story and thought I might try it myself. So here we go!

Kenny
Every day I am grateful for this man. He puts me first and loves me even when I don’t deserve it.

What do you want?

Sometimes all people want is everything.

It’s probably a good thing that rudeness, questionable behaviour and the things people do or say still surprise me.  I hope I never get to a point where I am no longer surprised by them.

At my core, I don’t really care what people think or do. I care when it affects me and my rights, but at the end of the day – give ‘er.  I, of course have an opinion on everything, who doesn’t?  I don’t offer it up to people unsolicited (usually), but I have an opinion (and if I don’t currently have one, just give me a few minutes and I’ll conjure one up)  Does that make me opinionated?  Probably, but so are you.  You just had one.  About me.

The problem I have is that I get tired of other peoples opinions.  I get tired of hearing them, tired of thinking about them and tired of dealing with the people on the other end of them.  Which is fine, really – just give me back the same respect I give you – that it’s your right to have one.  Even if I think it’s wrong.

There’s a great line from a song by the band, Need to Breathe that says, “…just ’cause I’m wrong, it don’t make you right, no you ain’t right.”

There are things I think are completely true.  I’ve hitched my wagon to it.
