It’s Friday and I’m Feeling Alright

It is finally Friday and I am really excited about it. I’m not going to beat about the bush, this week was rough. I have gone to bed late and worried each night and woken up tired and stressed each morning. Mostly, I did this to myself since only I get to pick how I feel about my week but this week, I was less than stellar at managing my reactions to my life.

The good news, is that this week is just about over and I can decide at any time to feel different. I’m deciding today to feel better. To relax. To practice gratitude. 

I overslept this morning which meant that I took a later ferry into work. It. Was. Beautiful. My pictures don’t do it justice but I thought I’d share them anyway. I decided instead of worrying about being late, that I would appreciate the view I don’t get to see every day.

The view is stunning this morning on the #SeattleFerry

My commute on the ferry is often spent with my head down, working away. It’s my time to focus. It’s quiet and calm and I’m effective. This morning though, I got to appreciate the beauty I so often miss because it’s still dark out during my usual ferry. Instead of trying to frantically catch up on emails, I looked out the window and collected my thoughts.

Friday is usually a celebration of the end of the week. I relish sleeping in and catching up on my “home” life. Today though, I’m going to celebrate the day a little differently. I’m going to be thankful that even during rough weeks, I have a beautiful commute that can help me reset how I decide to react to my day. Tonight is date night so I have a loving evening to finish off a productive and calm day.

And when I get home, I get to snuggle and love up on these guys:

My fur babies.

Life is beautiful and I have no business being anything but grateful, thankful, peaceful and happy regardless of what day of the week it is.

What are you grateful for?
