Gratitude Monday - The Sun Never Sets on Gratefulness


Sunset off the coast of Chile.

Some days its hard to know what to be grateful for. No, not because I can't think of anything. That's absurd. It's because the choices are virtually unlimited. I am here. I exist. If I get stuck for something to be thankful for I go with breathing. Everything after that is gravy.

All that said, I am currently grateful to whomever directed me to get my beta blocker prescription renewed by a local doctor last week. I had the option of waiting until today when it could have been done through my cardiologist. I needed only a few to tide me over until my teleheath appointment with him. That's an appointment conducted by camera as opposed to me going to his office. It is possible that I could have been finished with the beta blockers then and I was looking forward to it.
Instead I went to a doctor here who insisted, in the way of medical people, on checking me over. I am back in atrial fibrillation and that means back on anticoagulants.
I had every intention of waiting. I was about to tell my cardiologist's assistant so when someone or something tickled my psyche into saying I'd do it here.
I am grateful.

As always I love your words and thoughts.
the fact that you see the world as limitless with regards to what you might be grateful for on any given day.

we are grateful for you & the message here about NOT WAITING for us as well.

Thank you for your kind words, MizFit. I am touched that you're grateful for me. And, yes, there's always something to be grateful for, even if it takes a bit of looking to see it.

I, too, am grateful that you physically went to see a doctor and they caught this before it smacked you down again!

Love your gratitude attitude... and agree, there are so many things to be grateful for in this life!

Thanks, df Bag Lady.
"The A-Fib Smackdown" does sound pretty nasty.

Wow, take care of yourself! It's funny how the universe works sometimes.

Leah J. Utas said...

Thanks, Bunnygirl. The Universe is looking after me.

I am grateful that you listened to your little tickle and saw your Dr. in person. Not that I don't mind visiting you, I would just rather it not be in hospital again.

Leah J. Utas said...

Thanks, Reb. It's always good to listen to the little voice inside no matter how it lets itself be known.

I'm grateful for getting to read your blog! You are very inspirational! I need to sit down and really think about the many things that I should be grateful for. I'm glad they caught the medical condition before it got worse. Take care of yourself!

Leah J. Utas said...

Redbush, thanks. I've been called many things over the years, but I think inspirational is a first.
Y'know, once you start thinking about what you've got the list gets pretty long.

Hilary said...

I doubt there are many who are more in touch with their little voices than you are. I'm glad you show it the respect it has earned.

Leah J. Utas said...

Thanks, Hilary. The little voice speaks for a reason. I wish more would heed it.

Dang, so sorry the A-fib is back! But that's so great they caught it right away. That really is something to be grateful for!

Love the glacial ice photo by the way--it really does evoke a whole fantasy world.

It pays to listen to your higher consciousness.
