Before I started writing these posts, I never really sat down and thought, purposefully, about the good things going on in my life. I really like doing it, though - sitting down and reflecting on everything going on, and highlighting the many good things that have happened, big or small. And with that being said, here's my gratitude list for the month.
My heart is pretty full this month - I just got back from a trip to New York to celebrate one of my best friend's wedding! So I'm feeling super grateful and content right now. Here's are a few things making me especially grateful.
I'm writing this on a day off from work, which puts me in a pretty good mood to be writing a gratitude post, honestly! Sometimes I'm at a point where I need to write these to remind myself to be grateful, but today, I'm already feeling grateful and content. So here's what's making me feel so happy right now.
May and June have always felt like the most hopeful months to me! I think it's because, even now, they remind me of the end of the school year - of that sense of endless possibilities that await you over the summer. I always feel especially grateful and hopeful this time of year - evening is looking pretty and green, the sun is back, and I know summer will be here soon. So I'm full of gratitude for so many little things this month - here's a few of them.
When the weather starts to change from winter to spring, my mood always starts to lift, too. I've been feeling really content and grateful lately for all of the small but happy things going on in my life.
Every time I sit down to write a gratitude list post, it feels like it couldn't have come at a better time. I've been feeling so burnt out lately that I really do need the reminder right now to sit back and think about all of the little things going on that I am feeling grateful for.
I've actually felt much happier, lighter, and more content this last month than I have in a while. I think it's because of two main reasons - first, I've been feeling much better health-wise, and it's been such a relief to know that feeling "normal" (or at least, my own version of normal) again is possible, and second, we've had at least a few days of spring-like weather. I've also really tried to use my weekend time to relax, too. All of these things have left me feeling much more content overall, which has been a really nice feeling. In turn, it hasn't felt like a struggle to find things that I feel grateful for. So here's what's on my gratitude list this month.
I have the winter blahs in January (...and in February!), so there's really no better time for a gratitude list. I could really use the reminder to focus on the good instead of complaining about the early dark and the gloominess that's been somewhat of a constant in Pittsburgh lately. So here's what I'm currently feeling grateful for.
It feels like the time after the holidays is the right time to think about what we're grateful for - a nice look inward after all the excess that tends to come along with the holidays. So, in no particular order, here's what I'm feeling grateful for this month.
Thanksgiving feels like the perfect time to share all the things - big and small - that I'm feeling grateful for. Other than, of course, all of you! Wishing you all a very happy Thanksgiving.
