Previous Gratefulness

I was doing some searching today and I came across my original gratefulness challenge that I did in the summer of 2010. This first challenge wasn’t as intense as the one I just complete.

If I’m still grateful for it three years later then it must really be important.

Challenge Complete: 90 Things I Am Grateful For

Here they all are; the 90 things I have highlighted during my 30 day gratefulness challenge. There is still an even longer list of things I didn’t get a chance to talk about.

I had spent 22 years knowing precisely what the months ahead would look like and that way of moving through life didn’t seem appropriate anymore.
