Keeping Busy (#239)

Being back at UMass means being busy. It’s good for me to have things to do. It keeps me organized and being productive brings me happiness. I can carve out routines and schedules and it all helps me “feel good”. This moment feels good.


Today I’m Grateful For…

  1. My family
  2. Weekend Premiere League
  3. A couple deep breaths
  4. The places I’ve been
  5. Sharing a birthday with my sister
  6. The uncertainty of the horizon
  7. Watermelon in the summer
  8. Cupcakes with good frosting
  9. Good dreams
  10. Challenge and adversity
  11. A clean apartment
  12. Warm blankets and socks
  13. Morning tea
  14. Trying new things
  15. The weekend
  16. When my friends visit
  17. Texts from my Grammy
