So this week has been pretty long. The 24 hour Disneyland left me exhausted and then launched into a long yet awesome week at work. After all of it I was feeling pretty deflated so as I sit here on Friday relaxing, it seems like a good time to reflect and me thankful for all the awesome parts of my life.
- Living, working, eating – I somehow am able to balance everything I need financially to make ends meet and then some. I am thankful that I’m able to support myself at 25 with a great job that I love!
- My cat loves belly rubs – It sounds weird, but my cat loves belly rubs and I love giving him belly rubs. The simple things.
- An Able Body – When I get bored or “down” about my running, I always try to disconnect from my tech and goals for a run, and just appreciate that my body is AMAZING. I can run and jump and live my life how I want to without physical limitation.
- Friends – I have some awesome friends. I tend to be pretty busy with work and my general homebody nature, but I love when I get to hang out with them!
- My Experiences – I’ve had some amazing experiences in my life. I’ve achieved things I’ve dreamed about (including signing a vertical support column that is now in a WDW attraction!) and I know my life has so much more ahead of it!
- Family – While I don’t see them often, they are always there when I need some support and I love them for that. They help me keep a level head and give me outside opinions when I need some perspective.
- Podcasts – I love them because as a person who isn’t a big reader, I can still learn and grow wherever I go. I love listening to Things You Should Know and Science Friday when running. I feel like I’m killing 2 birds with one stone, expanding both my physical and mental self!
- Ice Cream – This is by far my favorite food and I’m so happy it exists!
- Coffee – Again, same as ice cream, I love it’s existence. There is something so comforting about a hot cup of joe to kill those afternoon sleepy feelings.
- Life – Even though I get stressed out and tested, I’m happy to be alive and living in this exciting and interesting part of human history. Today is a very unique time where I can connect with anyone from anywhere while being ANYWHERE. It really is incredible!
What are you happy for?
