What a trip!

This past weekend, my wife and I joined 4 other chiropractic couples at an amazing house in Cabo San Lucas. We had an unbelievable time! We “talked shop”, laughed, relaxed, recharged, ate (a lot of) great food and connected as individuals. It was a lot of fun. I am thankful that we were able to attend! I am thankful for the people who came with us (old friends and new). I am thankful for the beautiful world we live in. I am thankful for my amazing wife whom I adore! I am thankful!

Decisions!

This past weekend my staff and I went to a great seminar in Tulsa. One major takeaway for me was that our days are full of decisions. If I wake up and am “off” I decide to change it or allow it to change me and my whole day. I can decide to feel better. I can decide to spread joy and love. I can decide to be present and to fully participate in my life with my family, friends, coworkers and patients. It’s all about the decisions I make. I am thankful for having the power to decide 🙂

Hope

I am so thankful to be part of a profession that offers hope to those who didn’t think they had any! A new patient came in last week, completely distraught. She has a pretty significant injury and has had numerous studies (X-ray, CT scans, MRIs) to determine the cause. She was told that surgery is probably her only option. I am so grateful for Chiropractic, because I know we can help her! I am looking forward to helping her feel better, and providing her with hope for a pain-free future!

I am grateful for Pangea coffee! We found this amazing coffee roaster in Golden on Saturday when we had some time to kill before Payton’s soccer game. The coffee is amazing! We purchased some Nicaraguan coffee for home and had a cup this morning (we are still finishing our other coffee). It is SOOOOOO much better than what we have been drinking!

I am grateful for the fact I get to have time at breakfast with my entire family and we aren’t rushing about too much. The time we spend to get ready for the day is precious.

I am grateful for my amazing staff at my office. We have had a fun week so far, and we are meeting to set goals/intentions for the rest of the year. I am thankful that they are driven, compassionate and caring!

Soul squeeze

This weekend, I had a seminar in Kansas City and listened to some amazing speakers.  They reminded me of who I am and who I can become. I am so grateful for the “squeezes” of the soul that propel me to wake up, to love, to serve, to care more fully. I am grateful for my life, and the amazing people in it that lead me from motivation to inspiration and ultimately to transformation.

Behind the Scenes

I woke up this morning to another BEAUTIFUL Colorado morning. As I was sitting, sipping my coffee I had a couple thoughts. “I am so thankful for the fact I can sit here, grab my coffee, sip and enjoy without truly ‘thinking’ about it.” That led to a whole rabbit hole of gratitude!

I am thankful for the air I breathe and the fact that my trachea and lungs know exactly what to do with it.

I am thankful for my heart that pumps life through me without me “asking” it to.

I am thankful for my eyes that take in information and beauty.

I am thankful for my tongue that allows me to taste such amazing things.

I am thankful for my legs, I can walk to work on such an amazing day.

I am thankful for my immune system, building a line of defense, working every minute of every day to keep me healthy.

I am thankful for my hands that allow me to do such awesome work as a Chiropractor, and they allow me to write, type, and hug my loved ones.

I am thankful for all the amazing people in my life that fill my life with love, laughter and connection.

I am thankful for SOOOOOO much more, and if you take a minute to dive into your own rabbit hole of gratitude, you will be amazed at the quadzillion (yep its a real number….maybe) things that you have to be thankful for as well!

Happy Tuesday!

P.S. I am also INCREDIBLY thankful that my son, Payton is home, healing again after a scary bout this weekend. He had to have his appendix removed. I am thankful for the amazing Doctors, nurses and staff who helped him when his body needed some assistance. I am thankful now that his body is healing on its own and he will return to being an amazingly vital young man in just a few days!maxresdefault
