Grateful for 'E'xpression

E is for expression

Self expression can manifest is such a variety of ways. Many of which inspire me deeply. Some may say that expression should be reserved and is prettiest when wrapped up in a perfectly honed box, but for me trying and getting 'it' out is a good start.

I am grateful for effective communicative expression (no hard feelings that way--you always know where you stand and nothing harbors or builds).

I am grateful for creative expression--ALL TYPES. So much of my creative inspiration comes from expression through music, photography, written word and varying art forms.

I am grateful for occasional exuberant expression. The unexpected is so refreshing and alive. And we are meant to live, people!

I am grateful for eccentric expression. It's not so much the direction I would personally go to express myself but it just underscores the uniqueness of us all and I can very much appreciate an eccentric expression, for the sake of expression and honoring that.

I am grateful for Madonna who so perfectly commanded us to "vogue..and express ourselves."

I saw a lapse yesterday. Some of you emailed me directly. Don't be shy. EXPRESS YOURSELF. What are you grateful for (today is 'E')?

E-mail. I love that I can communicate with my far away friends for free thru e-mail. E-mail has really changed my life. When I can't sleep and it's 2;30 in the morning I can't call my friends up and wake them, but I sure can drop them an e-mail, either keep them up to date on whatsup or reply when I have a free moment. I am thankful for being a mom during the time of e-mail.

So fun to read what you are thankful for. I've borrowed your idea and am walking my way though the alphabet with my gratitude. Thanks for all your great inspiration, always ;).
