Today is New Years Eve. I have already been seeing people posting what they are thankful for this past year or how it was a good or bad year. Thinking about it, I have had a wonderful year. I have so much to be grateful for. I don’t wait until the end of the year to reflect on it though or say thank you.
I have had this little thing happen the last year or so. I see 11:11 or 1:11 A LOT. I can’t answer why I see it so much. Maybe my brain is accustomed to the rhythm and patterns of the numbers or as some believe it has a spiritual or mystical meaning. I don’t know for sure. But when I see it, I always say thank you. Thank you to something Universal, something bigger than myself. Maybe it is to my Dad and Grandma who I hope are watching over me. Maybe it is to that higher power, not a God per se, but a force something that unites us all. No matter what, I say thank you for my life.
I also belong to a site called happyrambles where everyday I post what I am grateful for that day. No one else sees it, but I can go back and look at past days to see what I said.
Today, I am grateful to live in this amazing city, Los Angeles. I haven’t even touched the surface of all she has to offer, but I look forward to the journey.
This last year, I am so grateful for:
being in recovery from an eating disorder
having an amazing solo show in May.
becoming a performance artist and shaving my head.
Having a little money in my bank account.
paying off a couple of bills
creating my immersive virtual installation in Second Life
selling some paintings
meeting some wonderful new people who have become friends
and having such amazing friends in my life
publishing a 2nd book
dancing for the first time in years
being in this moment in time, living the life I lead and being the woman I am today
Thank you all so much for your love and support!! Cheers to an exciting and beautiful new year!!!
