Today, I’m thankful that my job forces me to be introspective at times. Sitting in on treatment groups, topics and discussions will often make me look at my own issues.

Today, I’m thankful that it’s a short work week for me. I’m thankful that my throat feels better than it did overnight. And, I’m thankful that when I get home, I have zero plans tonight.

Thanks, May the Fourth

Last week was kinda tough because I couldn’t get out of my head. I’ve been waiting to hear about a job I interviewed for and it has been eating at me, but… I’m thankful.

I’m thankful because getting this job isn’t a life or death thing. I have a job already. It pays sufficiently. I have my issues but I don’t hate it. So, if I don’t get it, life will still be alright.

For that I am thankful. And I pray for those who are not in this privileged position.

Thanks, Case of the Mondays

Yesterday was Monday but today FEELS like Monday. Feeling very exhausted, but…

I am very thankful that last night I submitted my last grad school paper for awhile. I’ve got about two months off and I am very excited for a long needed break.

I am also thankful for opportunity that is presenting itself later this week. Feel free to keep me in your prayers around 10am on Thursday.

Thanks, Days 106 and 107

Yesterday, I was able to spend my night resting with my wife. It was nice to just lay on the couch together and relax. I’m thankful for nights like that.

Today, I’m thankful that even during periods where I am frustrated by my job and those I work for, there are voices and situations that ground me and remind me that it’s not that bad.

Thanks, Days 104 and 105

Yesterday, I was thankful at work that I knew my stuff and was able to make an important recommendation to upper mamagement.

Today, I am thankful that my boss backed up my recommendation and was very supportive in my current efforts and projects.

Thanks, Day 101-103

These last few days, I’ve been very thankful that, for me, my job is not my life. If I defined who I am but my career, I’d likely have banged my head through a wall at least half a dozen times by now.

Thanks, Days 50-52

Wednesday, I was thankful at the end of the day because it was my last real work day of the week.

Thursday, I was very thankful to have the opportunity to attend the ACJS Annual Meeting where I met a bunch of the people in my graduate program, learned some really interesting info, and got my picture taken with Ed Rendell.


Today, I’m thankful that it’s almost the weekend and that, despite the rain, it’s going to be almost 50 degrees today.

Thanks, Day 35

Today, I’m thankful that I don’t have video conference meetings more than once or twice a month.

I’m also thankful that my new website (The Farsighted) is near being ready for official launch! Check it out!

Thanks, Days 30-32

On Thursday, I was very thankful that a meeting I had been dreading turned out well. The person who I expected to want to knock out in the meeting was actually helpful and productive.

Yesterday, I was very thankful that I had the chance to cuddle and relax with my wife. We watched and enjoyed Ender’s Game. While not at great as the book, it was solid.

So far, this morning, I am thankful that my boys have finally begun to chill and just play nice with each other. Weston (my little guy) has been super disobedient the last few days. Cash (my older one) has been doing a great job brushing him off and being good, mostly. This morning, they were fighting for a bit, but are playing really well together now… so well, in fact, that I feel like posting this is a serious jinx…
