10 Things I’m Grateful For

What are you grateful for?

My friend Marie Forleo asked that question in a recent blog post and I left my “Top 10” things in the comments – and thought I’d share it with you as well.

(mine definitely reflects little and big things given where I’m at in my life right now)

10 Things I’m Grateful For:

  1. My loving wife (and the fact that she agreed to get up this morning with our 18 month old daughter after I had a late night working).

  2. The giggles of my 18-month old daughter followed by a “Dada” 🙂  My heart melts every single time I hear it.

  3. The patience and love that our dog Obi always had for our daughter (even when she yanked on his tongue!).  He will be greatly missed.
  4. The card from our neighbors 3 year old boy that read “I’m sorry that your doggie went to heaven”.
  5. The internet (because without it, I wouldn’t have the business I have today or the GREAT people I have in my life)
  6. Our customers – who everyday put their trust in us and our products
  7. All the people that I get to work with everyday – we are so fortunate to have attracted SUPER talented people that have taken our company WAAAAY further than I ever imagined.
  8. My health – After a recent injury I realized just how important and grateful I am to be in good shape.
  9. Books/Podcasts/Online Videos – It’s pretty freakin’ awesome that for less than $20 (often free) we can consume someone’s wisdom that has taken years to develop.
  10. Freedom & Flexibility – The fact that I live in a small town (population of 4,500) and that I can still do what I love, with who I want, when I want… makes me the luckiest guy in the world… and I’m VERY grateful for it.
