Owning It (#287)

This is your process, this is your journey.

I remind myself of this all too often. My process is my own and there’s no point in comparing. Comparison causes anxiety and we can only worry about the things we CAN control.

Everyone has their own experiences, moments of learning, and challenges. Be grateful for your own.


Today I’m Grateful For…

  1. Routine and consistency
  2. The sound of birds outside my window
  3. Funny cat yawns
  4. Positive affirmations
  5. Visiting my grandma
  6. Music before bed
  7. Naps when I need them
  8. My Peer Mentor staff
  9. Peanut butter bars
  10. Time at the gym
  11. Vanilla milkshakes
  12. Making my bed in the morning and starting my day with a win
  13. Time to read
  14. When I can support my friends
  15. Anything by Bon Iver / Novo Amor
  16. People who inspire
  17. The ability to create something

  20. My family
  21. Clean water and my Cambodian family

  23. Trust in the Universe
  24. Patience and understanding
  25. This very moment
