The haiku that launched a thousand sun salutes and a love for the ages with my Manduka Mat!
Dear Manduka Mat,
I have been practicing yoga for over a decade now and to be perfectly honest, I was largely resistant to you for nine of those years....
On this the last day of the year, I send a very humble Random Note of Gratitude your way…I know that I cursed you often and I’d like to say that there was nothing gentle about you, but I don’t think that would be fair. The truth is...
Dear Trader Joe’s Peppermint Joe-Joe’s,
Oh that I had never met you....You are too much of all of the things I love most – chocolatey, pepperminty, calorie-laden crunchiness all...
My needs are pretty simple and I haven’t sent you a letter in years so I hope you will take my requests into consideration.
I want a fantastic boyfriend.
I want handstand in the middle of the room.
I want a ridiculously fun co-star on some ridiculously fun show.
I want to grow www.randomnotesofgratitude.com into…something!!!
I want to sleep at night when I’m supposed to. With my boyfriend. Obviously.
I know what you are thinking Santa. “Jana Lynn, there is NOTHING simple about this list!”
Which is why I am more than willing to settle for an ugly Christmas Sweater. Find me the ugliest, luckiest Christmas Sweater out there Santa and it will remind me that I’ve got some work to do in the year ahead (see above list).
As always, I thank you for being Father Christmas, for spreading joy and cheer to the lives of most, and for your efforts to help keep the world economy strong. Fly safe Santa!
P.S. If you can’t find an ugly sweater a tacky sweatshirt with a coyote on it would work too. I’m not sure, but I think that may be my spirit animal.
Dear Flying Saucers,
This Random Note of Gratitude is long overdue, but I would be remiss if I didn’t write it. For just a moment on this Thursday afternoon, I felt as though I was back...
It's not too late, it's easy to do, you'll get an endorphin hit writing it, and the recipient(s) will receive one reading it!If you are still feeling ambivalent just repurpose mine!
Dear Ravi, Jane, and Daphne,...
With the holidays upon us, life has likely gone from zero to stressful in 2.1 seconds! For many of us that stress will involve planes, trains, and automobiles. If you find yourself needing to blow off some steam and...
An impromptu Random Note of Gratitude to the lovely, talented, and deliciously spirited Alex Crow, who not only delivered Turkey Pose when I asked for it this afternoon at her yoga class, but served up a full on Thanksgiving Feast complete with...
