What are you thankful for the most this year?
While I was brainstorming answers for this question, I realized I need to slow down more in my life and start thinking about things I am grateful more often. It felt so good to identify all of the things in my life that bring me joy.
First, I am thankful for my boyfriend who has somehow stuck with me for the past two years while I have been in grad school. I have had more mental breakdowns in the past year than I have in my entire life, and he has tried making things easier for me as much as he can.
Second, I am thankful for my friends and coworkers who have also stuck with me while I have been in grad school. Seriously. I have been a mess, and I honestly cannot comprehend how all of the people in my life have dealt with it.
I could go on and on about all of the people in my life who have supported me, but I will move on to something else!
Finally, I am grateful for my home and all of the possessions I am lucky enough to have. I have a room full of books, a room full of craft supplies, gaming systems to fill my cozy gaming needs, a place to sleep, etc.
Wow, that felt good. I have tried to start a gratitude journal in the past, but it never worked out because I am terrible at sticking with new things! However, I can still stop and reflect on my life more and this was a great reminder of that.
Let me know down in the comments: What are you most grateful for this Thanksgiving season?
I hope everyone has a safe, exciting holiday this week! Until next time, xx
