2017 has been a complete whirlwind. I’ve had some major ups, and some pretty big downs as well. We got a new MacBook and I’ve started learning to code, I improved my makeup game (I think? … I hope!), I went to my first tech conference and participated in my first hackathon! Most of all, I learned that I had room in my heart for a kitty. (No, but seriously… I’d always been 100% a dog person up until now.) All in all, some pretty cool things have happened.
A project was suggested for me recently: over the course of however long it takes, list 1000 things that you’re grateful for. A the time it was suggested, I was almost asleep, and I’ve gone back and thought about it quite a few times, but have never really taken the time to sit down and really think about it. (If you know what I mean.)
Isn’t that how things work in life? We have a list of things we want to accomplish, start, or look into, and every day, we glance over at the list and think, “not today, but maybe tomorrow.”
So here are 5 things I’m grateful for. A start.
