Up With The Sun (#234)

I’m not sure if it’s the jet lag or something else but my body has been eager to wake up around 3am and 6am this past week or so. I’ve decided not to fight it and I’ve enjoyed the benefits of being up early. Sitting in the morning, listening to the birds and watching the day begin has been quite calming. I use this new found time in the morning to write my blog and drink my tea. This is a routine I could get used to!


Today I’m Grateful For…

  1. Foggy mornings
  2. The deep green in the trees
  3. Warm tea
  4. FaceTime with my mom
  5. The cool breeze from my balcony
  6. The return of college football
  7. My Peer Mentor staff
  8. Anything my dad grills
  9. Change
  10. People who aim to inspire
  11. Catching the sunrise
  12. Nighttime stretches
  13. CLEAN WATER! Check out my project and see how you can get involved!
  14. Learning new things
  15. My summer audiobooks and podcasts
  16. Friends from home
  17. My time in the UK
  18. Working here at UMass
  19. Quiet mornings
  20. Time with Ned, my cat
  21. My family
  22. Buffalo chicken salad from Big Y
  23. Gratitude
  24. The hope of what the future brings
  25. The precious present
  • 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.
