Taking My Time (#198)

The very last item on every single list so far has to do with living in the present and today I felt like I did that. I wasn’t concerned about anything other what was right in front of me and it felt good, I felt at peace. I’m grateful for the people who have taught me those lessons and who remind me of them when needed.

Today I’m Grateful For…

  1. Summer bonfires
  2. Clean laundry
  3. Organized music
  4. A good pen
  5. My SwiftKick internship
  6. Visiting my sister in NY
  7. Delicious street food
  8. Shade on a hot day
  9. Bandaids and sunscreen
  10. The smell of fresh cut grass
  11. Souvenirs from friends
  12. Talking things out
  13. The sound of rain on my window
  14. BSU Spring Carnival
  15. A hot shower
  16. Reliable people
  17. My beard in the winter
  18. Holding hands in the car
  19. Making new friends
  20. My process
  21. FIFA with Lucas
