February is almost over. Can you believe it will be March in under a fortnight? Time certainly flies so make the most of every moment. I didn’t find much gratitude on Friday (it was ‘one of those days’) but I did choose to find something, and you can too. Even a bad day has to have at least one positive. Maybe it’s a lesson learned or just a blooming flower in your garden. Find it; it’s there somewhere.

Day 47 I am grateful for:

Another early morning sunrise, because Thursday mornings I go walking with my friend Sue and it’s early enough to catch the sunrise as we round the bend at the Alley (Currumbin Beach). What a great place to start a day!

Day 48 I am grateful for:

Nothing (just kidding) – for morning bootcamp that had me aching all over, because we used lots of weights and at my age weights will build strength and help me live a longer healthier life.

Day 49 I am grateful for:

Finishing the book I’m reading while lying in a shallow pool, because I just love books and Saturday was hot. The smell of the sprinkler on the dry grass was amazing.

Sprinkler water like diamonds in the sky.

Day 50 I am grateful for:

Registering my CIP, because now my book is registered with the National Library of Australia, it’s a real book. I’m so excited. Grateful, grateful, grateful!

Day 51 I am grateful for:

Early morning kick fit, because our trainer Chelsea Hackett is an inspiration (she won her weight division in the Australian Muay Thai championships over the weekend. Congrats Chels, you are amazing.

I’d like to mention too; the group of women who train at Hammer Fit are the most supportive, encouraging, motivated group of women I have ever trained with. No-one complains. Everyone has a dig. There’s no negativity just lots of positive vibes. We come from all walks of life and in all different shapes and sizes, but we all want the best for each other. All women need to take note; build each other up, not tear each other down. Be kind always.
