I decided to challenge myself 30 days of Gratitude…
November is the month of Gratitude and many other holidays and events that are important in my life. I decided that I should probably start something new and fresh for the blog that is also good for my self-worth and growth. I’ve been feeling down a lot and filled with anxiety. I believe this stems from the overload of stress from college and reading and constant assignments left to right. I need to step back and reevaluate myself. I don’t like this stress, I want it to go away. I thought that by starting up a daily gratitude post for the month of November would be a great way to start. I have never done this before but I have kept a gratitude journal once, I never finished it.
November was the first day of Gratitude but I was not able to write things down. So for today, you get two doses of gratitude!
Gratitude November 1st:
“I am grateful for my boyfriend”
November 1st is his birthday! Happy Birthday!
He is one of my best friends and one of few people who really know me. He cares for me and makes me laugh. He reminds me to be better and to never bring myself down. He supports my work and listens to my opinions. He aligns me to think better about the world and to always find joy in the little things. I love and appreciate his company; be it walks, or lunch together, even going to the store. I care about him so much and I look up to him and wish him to follow his dreams and passions no matter what people say. I want us to be able to travel together and experience the world, and someday we will.
Gratitude November 2nd:
“I am grateful to be able to vote”
Today was the last day of early voting. It was also the first day I voted. I was so nervous to vote, but I also think it was mixed with excitement. I can feel the adulthood caving in. One day I was a 3rd grader standing in line for lunch, the next I’m 20 years old waiting to vote. Election day also happens to be my birthday, November 6th.
If you have the right to vote, then VOTE. It is important to this country and to the people to have a right in what happens to society.
I hope you follow along too!
