Working Towards My Goals (#174)

Not every blog I post is right on time. Not every list is the most creative. Why I continue to post isn’t just about me. It’s not just because I made a promise to myself, it’s because what gratitude represents.

To be honest, I’ll be glad when the year is over. Not because I’m tired of sharing gratitude or don’t believe in the same ideals but because I shouldn’t be so rigid in my routine or approach. I LOVE gratitude but have found after 174 posts, it’s lost some of the initial meaning.

I will continue to post my list of 25 things I’m grateful for. I’m not someone who gives up easily, trust me, I’m as stubborn as they come. I appreciate my fellow bloggers and I’m thankful I’ve learned so much as my journey approaches the half way point.
