I look forward to writing about my gratitude, so I’m kind of bummed with myself that I’m two days late. For me, having the weekly writing goal has been helpful. I’m usually the kind of person who goes so overboard with goals that I would have tried to have written a daily gratitude journal. This works out so much better, and it is less stressful than that.
When I was in middle school I liked to write quite a bit. I’m thinking of this because I remember Mrs. Peterson used to have us write in journals all of the time. I used the time to copy and practice my spelling words. I did love to spell as well, and spelling tests were always after journal time. I know that the journals were never looked at, and I know that Mrs. Peterson knew I used the time to practice my spelling.
I’m grateful for this time to sit and write. I feel like I’m clunky at it, that it used to come so much easier years ago. Again, I wish I could pinpoint the moment or moments where I just stopped doing some of the things that I love to do.
I’m grateful that this week we donated and sold off even more of our unused clutter. Doing that made room for some inexpensive furniture that really make the house nice and complete. I have a lot of gratitude for the time that I have this summer to grow and recollect my thoughts. I’m following the adventures of my FSU classmates on their way to London, and I’m really happy for them. I’m grateful for the experiences I’ve had so far in life and am looking forward to all of the crazy things that will come up in the future.
