Gratefulness Challenge Day 29

Second to last day of my Gratefulness Challenge! Still so many things to talk about. How can I possibly choose? I sense a list of undiscussed items in my near future. I had a pretty crazy day and night last night so am lazily writing this post from the comfort of my bed. I think you can probably see as you read along how my post clearly reflects what I got up to in the past 24 hours: lots of laughter, lots of fun and perhaps not quite enough sleep.

1. My friends: I feel bad that my friends have had to be lumped into one gratefulness item. I have so many amazing people in my life who all really deserve their own place on the list. I’m really not sure how to talk about them all at once. I could have spent the month just writing about individual people who I am really grateful for, but alas there is only so much time.

Gratefulness Challenge Day 20

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! We are half way through the dreariest month of the year. I am also officially 2/3 of the way through my Gratefulness Challenge. Lots of reasons to celebrate and be grateful.

1. Local businesses: So I’m not one of those people that hates corporations. I love my ieverything, half my clothes come from H&M, I have an almost unhealthy obsession with Dollarama and the oat fudge bar at Starbucks is my cryptonite. But I also love small local businesses who offer good quality, unique products at a reasonable price and accompany all this with great customer service.

Gratefulness Challenge Day 13

What a busy, busy Wednesday! Lots of trekking around town to then spend time in various studios either rehearsing, teaching or taking class. Pretty much a dancers dream day. Therefore lots of inspiration for things to write about in today’s Gratefulness Challenge post came from travelling to new places and meeting new people.

1. Tea: This is the first inanimate object I have put on the list so far. It’s really quite silly, but a great cup of tea is one of my favourite things after a long day. Plus I’m still battling a bit of a cold this week so tea has been extra comforting.

I think that I got my love of tea from my mom. She is an even bigger tea enthousiast than myself. I can remember having real tea parties with her and my grandma from a very young age. I even had my very own fancy mini tea cups to drink out of. When I got older I then got to pick from my mom’s tea cup collection. What kid wouldn’t fall in love with drinking tea when it was made into such a fun and special event.
