As I mentioned in yesterdays less than prolific blog post, I’m going to be attempting to do the November “thanks” deal through my way. Mindful mentioning of something I am thankful for. Quick thoughts, shared through the blog format.

Let us for a second ignore the fact that I woke up incredibly irritated about something that I couldn’t, nor shouldn’t control, but instead focus on the fact that I hit “play” on Pandora and heard the delightful sounds of this guy…



Yeah, today, the 3rd of November, I’m thankful for Lionel Richie. What, you were expecting something poetic like me being thankful for my heath, or dogs? Nah. Maybe later when I run out of things to talk about. Right now, I’m focused on finding the good, and my good is this man, sometimes with the Commodores, sometimes not. Sometimes he dances on the ceiling and sometimes he uses a language that I’m 99% sure is made up.

I heard him this morning and smiled. Seriously, smiled, and got started on my day. I stopped thinking about budgetary issues, marketing mishaps and incredibly devious human beings with a political strategy that knows no bounds. Instead, I focused on the simple lyrics, and got started with my day.

Other things I’m thankful for today:

1.) Delete button on my laptop

2.) Post It’s

3.) The knowledge that at 6:15am, that I only have 14 more work hours to go until I’m going to sit down with a glass of Pinot Noir and relax.
