I am grateful for the opportunity to submit a proposal on a project in response to an RFP. Will I win the business? No idea. But I can go to bed knowing I spent the day writing the heck out of my proposal, and I think I should, even if I don’t.
I am grateful It’s my job to make breakfast for my boys in the morning. It’s often a hectic time, but preparing food for them first thing after waking up grounds me, and reminds me what my priorities are, no matter how the rest of the day unfolds.
I am grateful for date night. Julie and I dined like royalty at Part and Parcel, one of those artisanal hipster restaurants that are popping up these days. Then we went to the university to take in a screening of turn of the century silent films that portrayed stories that took place in the Roman Empire. There was live piano accompaniment, and man, he was good; he improvised the entire 90 minute show. It was a bit boring at times, and I’m not going to lie: the cartoon was my favourite. It was a night to remember.
