Stop To Smell The Roses (#72)

Slow down! It’s easy to get caught up in the challenges life throws at us. Take a deep breath and remind yourself of where you are and where you’re going. Use gratitude to find yourself balanced in the middle of it.


Today I’m grateful for…

  1. Supportive co-workers
  2. Student leaders
  3. Sports and teamwork
  4. Late night dancing
  5. The emotional support from my cat
  6. Safe surgeries
  7. New music
  8. Blog advice
  9. People who share gratitude
  10. Peanut butter of course
  11. My family
  12. Clean water
  13. A good book to get lost in
  14. Giving back
  15. Drive in movies
  16. Frosting, it’s my favorite food
  17. Taking a day off
  18. One day closer to vacation
  19. People who encouraged me to get involved
  20. Vibrant sun sets
  21. Chats with my plants
  22. Morning yoga
  23. Comfy clothes
