3 day mission

there are 3 days left until my birthday. the start of a brand new year.  since i didn’t keep any of my new year’s promises, i decided to do it a little differently this time.  over the next 3 days i will give away 50 things, list 50 things in my life i am grateful for, give 50 sincere compliments and meditate for 50 minutes each day.  i’ll keep track of it all and post it in 3 days –  here is the start of the list of things for which i am grateful:

my wonderful parents   the peeps in the front row & the rest of the family!
boo-bear,  being born in america, living in the city & my car.  that’s five – 45 more coming up – but first i’m going to take ivan out for a spin around the block & dole out some compliments!

  3. I just found your blog (after you “liked” mine) : ) LOVE your writing, your observations of your lovely city, your descriptions of all of the quirky wonderful things you expereince. I, too love city living, my city is Boston. Smaller, less crowded, but still has its share of quirky wonderful things. Can’t wait to keep reading Zen…


  4. Hi zen city! Thank you for checking out my blog! I like your sense of humor, and the idea of this post! Good luck! 🙂


  5. What a great birthday gift idea – for the birthday gal/guy to give out gobs of goodies. Amazed you could reach 50 in 6 days, and then thinking about all the rest of the good stuff on your blog, that fits. Keep it up each year?
