November’s Gratitude Day 1

It’s November. How did that happen??? And you know the deal, once Halloween is over – that is IT – the year just barrels to an end. Nooooooooo!!!! I still have so much to do with my dissertation! So much is due before the end of the year that I still haven’t made it back to ballet class. Sadness. Sometimes being a grown-up is so much not fun. But that’s dwelling on the situation negatively and that’s a choice. Very soon, I will be done with this dissertation and I’ll have another diploma to hang on the wall and another graduation to plan for… I do love a graduation ceremony. I’ll have time to work on my other writing and get to back to ballet class with vengeance and I’ve got BIG plans for this blog… I promise some ballet blog goodness in the new year!

I do have a plan for November though and here it is. November will be 30 days of gratitude. Please feel free to join in – ballet related or not.

Today, on this first day of November, I am grateful to have ballet in my life, even when I am not dancing. I am grateful for ballet friends who understand my passion and lunacy. And I am grateful for pots of coffee and cases of Diet Coke… I am writing a dissertation after all!

  1. Sending you tons of good vibes and heartfelt encouragement with the dissertation writing. I finished mine almost exactly two years ago and remember that final push very well. You rock! 🙂

  2. Yup, it is satisfying to be able to have the time to sit down and organize, gather, and summarize all the work you’ve done over the last umpteen years. After a lot of obsessing and agonizing over details, stepping back and looking at the big picture in context is a very seminal moment! 🙂 Enjoy it!

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
