I have hit day 30 of 30 of my Grateful Project. 30 straight days of sharing the things in my life that I am grateful for. Everything from cookies to my dog to my friends to MMA training.
Sometimes, I found it hard to think of things I was grateful for. And sometimes, it was a breeze and I could have listed a million things at once, in one breath. One thing is for sure, this little project forced me to find the goods in my life, everyday. Regardless of how tired, sad, happy, busy or excited I was.
And so today is the final day of the project. What is my grateful today?
As simple and as complex as that may seem. That is my grateful today. My life is so blessed and is really so wonderful. I’m healthy, I do what I love daily, I have friends and family who love me, and I am safe. There are a lot of things I want, that I don’t have. But I have all of my needs met. And on top of that, I have a lot of my wants met, too. All in all, I have plenty of kick ass things to be grateful for in my life.
Yes, my life is pretty awesome. But I am human and I do get bummed out about things from time to time. Sometimes, I feel stuck and frustrated. Sometimes, I feel lonely and left behind. But I know and believe that I have a great life, regardless of the temporary shadows that cast darkness and make it hard to see these awesome things.
And for this life of mine, I am grateful.
Thank you for staying with me on this 30 day journey. I hope you guys enjoyed it, and made you reflect on your own gratefuls… we are all blessed and we all have things to be thankful for. Sometimes, you just have to force yourself to look for it.
Sending love, hugs and butt slaps…
