Creating 2015—Day 324 to Day 328: GIVING THANKS

I’m in a thankful state of mind this morning.  Not very original considering tomorrow is Thanksgiving.  But hey, I’m thankful for feeling thankful and thankful Thanksgiving is tomorrow to shift me into a state of gratitude.  It’s such a beautiful place to exist.

I’m thankful for the wonderful creative meeting I had this past weekend with Screenwriter Cindy on our film project, The Botox Party.  She recently moved into a new home and its energy and hers are grounded and expansive and I love being there with her creating!  I’m thankful for the awesome slumber party I had Monday night with my best friend and actress, writer, producer extraordinaire, Finnerty Steeves.  She was just cast in an original play Off-Broadway and she’s in the middle of producing her first film she wrote and is starring in, and she is kicking serious ass, which in turn is inspiring and motivating me to get off mine.  I’m thankful for my wonderful aesthetician of the last 15 years, Marina at Smile—she had her work cut out for her yesterday.  I’m thankful for the delicious eight hours of solid sleep I got last night.  Sleep, glorious sleep!

From the bottom of my heart, thank you!

I’m thankful for all the gals who are going to be of service to me today, helping me have a clean house and great hair.  I’m so deeply thankful and grateful for my partner and the love, laughter and life we share together.  I’m thankful for his awesome friends who invited us to their house for Thanksgiving tomorrow!  I’m thankful I don’t have to cook.  I’m thankful for my movies and all who have worked on them and are still working with me on them to finish or get them off the ground.  I’m thankful for my awesome mother, my amazing sisters, my tight knit family, my incredible friends, my beautiful home, my health, my creative projects.

And last but not least, I’m thankful for you! I am thankful you are reading this! My laundry list of thank yous isn’t exactly scintillating. I can’t tell you how much it means to me—well, I can. IT MEANS THE WORLD TO ME!!!! Thank you for being a part of my journey. I’m wishing you the most amazing and gratitude filled Thanksgiving and holiday season.

Until tomorrow, create from what you have…thanks to give.
