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. I never wrote in detail about why I was grateful for these things, but I still find it quite an interesting read. I especial find it neat which items got repeated the second time around. If I’m still grateful for it three years later then it must really be important.
Only five days to go on my Gratefulness Challenge! Luckily my worry of running out of things to be grateful for by day 25 didn’t come true. Instead I find myself frequently getting stuck on what to choose. I’m trying to cram all the most important ones in there before the month is up, but I doubt I will get them all in. I guess that just leaves room for another list later down the road.
1. Improvisation: I know that I may sound like I have it all together, but in all honesty, a lot of the time I have no clue what I am doing. I make it up as I go along. Some of the best things come out of just throwing all the balls up in the air and seeing where they fall.
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.
