This Isn’t About Me (#96)

Yes, the list is mine and these are things I am grateful for but often times I need to remind myself, “This isn’t about me”. As I continue to make lists and strike for one list a day for an entire year, I hope to improve as I go and learn more about how to best inspire others.

It’s a work in progress but I think everything else should be too.
