For Valentine’s Day last month my parents sent me this lovely card seen below. Along with the card’s connection to my chosen career path it is actually the saying at the bottom which speaks the most about me.
My Gratefulness Challenge is soon coming to an end. It has been a big commitment this month to find time daily to write these posts, but I am really glad to be doing it. It has helped me see my life through a more optimistic lens and to realize just how lucky I am even in my lowest moments. Just being in a position where I am so privileged that I forget to be grateful for all the great stuff in my life is something in and of itself to be grateful for.
These posts have also gotten me really excited about writing and blogging. Regularly exercising my writing skills has helped me feel much more comfortable blogging and has helped stemmed so many other ideas for projects and post in the weeks to come. It has gotten me on a role! Can’t wait to share my future journeys with you all.
1. Public Transportation: Public transportation is far from perfect. If I could I would change many things about it and I know that I am prone to complaining. I would like it to go faster, be cheaper, and come more regularly. As I was waiting to get on the subway today though I had this moment where for no reason I started to think about how different my life would be without public transport.
Ok, here goes. I figured for day 1 of my 30 Day Gratefulness Challenge I’d make it easy on myself and knock some big hitters off the list. Leave the creativity for once I reach double digits.
1. Change: I know there are many people out there that may hate change, but I absolutely love it! Change is the reason that one moment you can be at the lowest of lows and the next, without any warning, you can be on top of the world. Now sure this also means that change could cause you to end up back at the bottom again without any warning, but it is certain to bounce you back up to the top sooner or later as long as you are open to it. Change is also the reason why yesterday I finished writing a post about how I wasn’t very busy and then opened my email a few hours later to a flood of opportunities being thrown my way. Looks like the next few months might not be as quiet as I had anticipated…
