Gratitude Day 25

  1. I’m grateful for motivational conversations with Carol. She helps me put every day stressors into perspective and think of ways to cope with whatever is stressing me out.
  2. I’m grateful that this is my last night on duty as a graduate student! My duty week has been super quite (because most of the students are on spring break).
  3. I’m grateful that HB enjoys his work so much and that his graduate program is going well. He’s graduating the same weekend I am and working hard on his final project.

Gratitude Day 24

I woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning because I did not want to do the things I had planned today. This gratitude journal helped me get out of my funk.
  1. I’m grateful for my family. 
  2. Even though I woke up grumpy - and noticed all the things I don't like about our apartment -  when I thought about all the things HB has done for us recently and I felt better.
  3. I realized today (while sending motivational text messages) that have the power to make people happy and bring people together!

Gratitude Day 23

Today I am grateful because...
  1. I have a partner that understands what overwhelms me and who is not overwhelmed by the same things. 
  2. I was able to talk to my Mom and give her good news about my job search.
  3. I’m grateful that dinner with friends lifts my mood when I’m having a grumpy day.

Gratitude Day 22

  1. I’m grateful for YouTube because I am successfully learning to knit a scarf – something I’ve always wanted to do!
  2. I’m grateful that I was able to relax today and work on my desire map (which is what inspired me to knit in the first place).
  3. I’m grateful that HB has an interview on Wednesday for a summer job (he’s a teacher).
