a few of my favourite things

December 12, 2011

I watched The Sound of Music this past week with my flatmate (for whom I am very thankful). I’m not sure I’ve ever watched the entire musical on film, but it made me feel so THANKFUL. You cannot watch Julie Andrews sing and think ungrateful thoughts.

I’ve also been having a lot of fun this holiday season, celebrating all the good things that have happened this past year. Before I make resolutions and decisions, I just want to thank God for all the good that’s come this year. Here are a very FEW of my favourite things:

1. Music. I played 3 gigs this year and recorded my music. I am so thankful I am able to express myself creatively and for a very supportive group of friends and open mics where I get to play every week should I take the opportunity.

2. Inspiring people. I have been so challenged and blessed by my friends’ lives and all that they are doing. I had the privilege of collaborating this year with some amazing people (in art and music). I am also currently reading Jackie Chan’s biography. What an inspiring story!

3. Coffee & my sunlamp. I had a bought with Seasonal Affective Disorder this year. If I didn’t have a sunlamp, I’d be a complete wreck. Thank God for artificial light, which gives energy when it’s not coming from the sun. I also just got a red tea that looks like Christmas and tastes amazing.

4. Finally, I am thankful for these socks I’m wearing. I feel like a strong bear when I wear them.
