I am going to try something new for a change. I know I am always blogging or writing some pretty depressing stuff. Even what I just got done writing like 30 minutes ago was pretty depressing. I am going to try to do my own gratitude journal. (CLICK HERE for how to make your own! It will redirect you to a previous post I made on this blog!) I figured what a better way to start than to make my first entry where I get to vent out most of my frustrations.
I am going to try list three good things, or positive things, that happened today no matter how small it seems. I cannot expect to feel better if I don’t try to make any changes. Sometimes it’s the small blessings that count, even if it’s something as small as someone made me smile when all I wanted to do was frown.
Here Goes Nothing:
My Gratitude List For
Tuesday, October 24, 2017
1. I got to spend some time with Mike and his daughter today while we were driving to our appointments. His daughter and I even made plans to hang out tomorrow.
2. I got to talk to my best friend @jazminegonzalez87 (and hopefully was able to make her laugh after her son acted like a butthead) even if it was only over text messages.
3. My one article (12 Things That Can Affect The Baby’s Appearance During Pregnancy) was trending at #1 today for a while.
«These things might not seem like much to anymore, but they were at least three things that happened to me today that were able to make me smile.»
