1-7 January: What I'm grateful for
Since I had made this decision near the New Year I decided the 1st January was the best to start, and so mentally I started noting things throughout the day that I am grateful for, or things that have made me happy, and I found that each day I could easily come up with three things (somedays I had three before lunch!). These things can span from a helping hand to a cup of coffee, in my mind if it makes me happy, if it makes me glad it is in my life, then it is something worth being grateful for.
As mentioned I already have a space to write down what I am grateful for, but I wanted to share here too. One, because I am hoping this helps me keep this up more; two, because I want to start photographing what I am grateful for (because how awesome would it be at the end of the year to have a book of photos of those little everyday things, or random occurrences that made your year?); three, because I am hoping it may encourage each of you to take a moment to reflect on what you are grateful for, even if it is only once a week.
So, all of that over here is what I have been grateful for in the last week:
Cafe de Paris - for always having yummy steak
Having someone who puts up with my crazy
A good shower
Kind people who lend me their phones in a time of need
The opportunity to travel
Having someone to travel with
How much James cares
Having access to doctors
Sushi lunch with James
The wonderful parents at work
Dinner cooked by James (I had fallen asleep, he cooked and then came to wake me)
Freedom to sleep as much as I want
Cooked breakfast by James
The opportunity to be creative
Turning a sick day into a study day
What are you feeling grateful for today?
