This post and a few to follow are inspired by Shawn Achor and his TED presentation on the Happy secret to better work.
I am thankful for my daughters. They have taught me humility, patience, love, and kindness.
I am thankful for my wife. She has brought me joy, laughter, tears, encouragement, and support.
I am thankful for my parents. They did not just bring me into this world, they taught me how to live in it.
Today was a rest day because I ran 14 miles yesterday as part of my marathon training.
Before I go to sleep I am going to meditate for five minutes. I will attempt to only concentrate on my breathing. I will try to drain my thoughts of everything except the simple act of breathing in and breathing out of air.
For my random act of kindness I will email a friend of mine and thank him for listening to me when I was going through a tough time last year.
