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.
My oh my! I can’t believe that I missed a day of my Gratefulness Challenge! Sometimes the day takes a turn that you just weren’t planning and there isn’t a whole lot you can do about it. With Valentine’s Day and then Family Day today in Ontario the week just caught me off guard a little more than expected. Hence the need for this double bill of a gratefulness post.
1. Determination: The past five days have been, to say the least, hard and I still have a few tough days left to get through. Some mornings I have woken up and all I wanted to do was roll over and fall back asleep. Some nights I would be heading out wondering why I couldn’t just be heading home. I haven’t really stopped much this week and it hasn’t been easy but it has brought many rewards. Sometimes you just have to get through stuff and push your body further than you ever have before.
Woot! Already this is starting to feel easier! Maybe I’m just in the honeymoon stage of my relationship with my Gratefulness Challenge, but I feel like already I am looking at things just a little differently. It was hard to pick only three things to write about today. Get back to me around day 25 when I am racking my brain for things to be grateful for.
1. Having people I can count on: You know that person that you know you can call no matter the hour and if you really need their help they will drop everything in a second and be there for you? Aren’t they the best! It doesn’t matter how big the request is, if they are able to help they will. You can trust that they will never let you down. I feel really lucky that I have more than one person who I know I can ask for almost anything and they will either do it for me or help me find someone that can.
