I am overflowing with gratitude and so full of thanks…
Today I’m linking up with TheSitsGirls for a day of gratitude in their back to blogging linkup. Join us!?
Here’s what I’m thankful for:
1. Oprah’s tour.

2. Rohan talking so much and so clearly
fixin’ to say something smart
This is one chatty kid! We have some legit conversations. And he knows all these words that I didn’t realize he did. And words he shouldn’t like “Mom, Kaya’s crying again. Freakin’ A!” ::sigh:: #mommyfail
3. Kaya being sleep trained
Think she’s teething? LOL
It took one day. She was a good sleeper, and regressed a bit when her two lil teeth were popping in. We did one day of the same modified sleep training we did with Roey, and boom. She’s good to go again. #easybaby
4. Actually attending the events I’m invited to
I’ve been turning down events left and right, giving my spot away to bloggie friends, and realized that I only have a few more months of NYC events so I need to make use of em as much as possible! I have started showing my face at events again and it feels good.
5. Business Clarity & Success
I felt foggy, but am getting clearer, more focused, and have a good plan forming. Exciting things ahead for Dani. I’m also thankful for the successes I’m having lately with collaborations, sales/earnings, and growth, both in the blogging/writing side and on the beachbody/coaching side.
6. Florida Stuff
So, no cruise next month, sadly. That doesn’t sound like a good thing, but it really is when coming from a financial standpoint. John and I will have a much less fancyshmancy anniversary, but it’ll be better in the long run. This also means no Florida trip, which sucks, but I’m going in December and that’s really right around the corner. Also starting to look at places to live down there…really exciting stuff.
You know me. I’m on a permanent decluttering/paring down mission that never ever…ever…ends. I started another round yesterday and I’m feeling so good. I read a quote that really sums up how I feel about it:
According to Oprah’s favourite organiser Pete Walsh, clutter can affect everything in your life:
You want a life built on a solid foundation, but you can’t even see the floor beneath you. You want to lose weight, but your kitchen is overwhelmed with appliances you never use. You want to build your career, but your office literally makes you feel ill. You want to change? This is where it starts: your home. Where you live, breathe, rest, love, and create. Forget the self-help books. Get rid of the clutter. Get organized. If you do, I promise that every aspect of your life will change in ways that you never imagined possible.
The way I see it, it’s all about self respect and self-love.
8. Scandal returning to TV tonight.
Don’t judge me. Yes, this makes me very thankful dammit!! Just get you some wine, and watch.
PS: it comes on at 9pm now! How to get away with murder comes on right after ::fingers crossed that it’s a good show::
9. Healthy habits requiring less effort
I wanted a sweet treat late last night. Specifically I wanted french toast drowning in syrup and butter. My craving was so strong and so specific that I wondered for a split second if I was pregnant. Instead, I had some water and waited. The craving still didn’t go away, so I had a chocolate shakeology. That hit the sugar spot, and killed the craving. If I were in a different place with my healthy habits, I would’ve made a big ol pan full of delicious french toast last night. I’m really thankful that getting healthier, and working out consistently, is getting easier and easier again. I love it!
10. This Guy
Don’t ask why he’s making this craycray face, I don’t remember.
What are you thankful for right this minute?!
