A Great Story (#43)

Just like a classic novel, life is full of twists and turns, highs and lows. I think gratitude helps us find ourselves right in the middle, perfectly balanced. Live a great story and be unafraid of what stands in your way.


Today I’m grateful for…

  1. An incredible season by the New England Patriots. They lost to a really talented Eagles team they earned that win. Excited for next season!
  2. Time with my best friend Bryan
  3. The change that comes with rain
  4. Signs from the Universe
  5. Love in all forms
  6. What patience brings
  7. This life and the lessons I’ve learned
  8. Reflection and journaling
  9. The clarity that comes from running or a good work out
  10. The healing that comes with change
  11. My chance to speak at commencement
  12. Good jellybeans
  13. The solitude of the beach in the winter
  14. Getting to pick the movie on family movie night
  15. Seeing my cat after a long day
  16. Nights delivering pizza in high school
  17. Promises kept
  18. Kind people
  19. Unlimited breadsticks at Olive Garden, what a great deal
  20. A sick guitar solo
  21. The safety of my bed and my space
  22. Those Tide commercials during the Super Bowl, hilarious stuff
  23. Anytime the ice cream truck came by and my parents had enough cash for me to get something
  24. My time in Cambodia
  25. This very moment

As always, check out my first blog, 25 Things I’m Grateful For (#1) to know why I’m writing this list and why I want you to start yours.
