Some of you may of you be familiar with the game K-F-M (http://killfuckmarry.tumblr.com), where one is given three hypothetical options and has to pick who among them they’d, respectively, kill, f*ck, and marry. Well, I have a new one that I feel I should share because it’s such a fun and easy way to practice gratitude. I privately call it The Anne Lamott Check-in, because it incorporates her theory that there are only three necessary prayers: Thanks, Help, and Wow.
So yesterday, my three were:
HELP me deal with some side effects of my new chemo regimen;
THANKS for my father getting through eye surgery without a hiccup, and for my husband getting home safely from his business trip; and
And today mine are:
HELP me make some decisions about self care;
THANKS for the big reveal at the eye clinic confirming the smashing success of my dad’s surgery, and for the fact that I feel much better today; and
What say we start a new thing.
What are yours today? #helpthankswow
