Be Kind To Yourself (#99)

You don’t always have to be so hard on yourself, even when you fail. Be grateful for the opportunity! Saying “try, try again” exists for a reason and sometimes we don’t get things right the first time. That includes how we treat others. Giving people a little bit of grace and time to fix a mistake may just result in some gratitude coming your way. Be patient with your process and theirs.


Today I’m grateful for…

  1. I’m not a huge fan of April Fool’s Day and I managed to make it without being pranked all day!
  2. The smell of protein powder after the gym
  3. To be able to volunteer and serve my community
  4. A good album to listen through front to back
  5. The highly anticipated Liverpool v City match on Wednesday
  6. New mentors and networks
  7. Working towards something bigger
  8. A higher power that exists within the Universe
  9. My siblings and my family
  10. Back massages
  11. Clean water
  12. Early bed times
  13. Feeling prepared
  14. Cat cuddles
  15. Time for hiking and photography
  16. Help planning my trip to Iceland and the UK
  17. Trust and honesty
  18. A few deep breaths and some patience
  19. Life lessons
  20. Summer jobs with my friends and days at the beach
  21. The warmth of the sun
  22. FaceTimes with my friends from BSU
  23. For Grad School and learning new things
  24. All of my supervisors, the good and the bad
  25. Today and every day on this planet

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.
