Today was a busy day. Started it off with a yoga class led by the lovely Denise Woods, followed by an awesome meeting to discuss Grow Your Soul plans for our upcoming yoga and paddle boarding retreat coming to Lake Arrowhead in 2013 – stay tuned! After excellent brain storming and goal setting, leaving me feeling inspired and excited, I headed off to get a pedicure before picking up the dapper Patrick Bateman from the groomers. Headed home in the rain, and then it was off to a spin class that kicked my ass (literally) at Cycle House LA to support the LA chapter of I Am That Girl. More inspiration. From there it was a rush to get home and get cute before heading off to dinner - the first of many birthday celebrations.
Because I will be in the mitten on my actual birthday (get ready Detroit!), my hubby planned an LA gathering for me (so sweet :) ). It was wonderful – great times with great friends and tons of excellent food courtesy of Sage Vegan Bistro in Echo Park. I LOVE that place – it is the absolute BEST! While we were there I had one of those – “wow, this is my life and I love it!” moments. Surrounded by awesome people, having great conversation, reminiscing on old times – it felt …good.
This world can seem really big and really lonely and really pointless sometimes. I remember moving to LA and feeling like a tiny fish in a huge ocean of wackiness. Now – 4 years later, I go out and run into people I know, have an awesome circle of friends and have created a life for myself here. Holy shit – I have a life here. Weird. And it’s not by accident.
I had to work my butt off to get to this place and I’m glad I did. Tonight as I sit here after a super packed day, I feel grateful. With Thanksgiving right around the corner I decided what better time to write about 30 things I’m grateful for? And so, in no particular order... here they are:
