My Little Red Journal (#293)

Today marks one year of the red journal. I’ve had journals before and I’ll have journals after but this journal is special. This past year has been quite a roller coaster but having a place to process my thoughts and feelings has been a saving grace. I’ve tried using that space to be more creative, to write descriptively, and to challenge myself.

I see my gratitude blogging with a very similar purpose. It’s a place where I can share what’s on my mind with the intention to spread gratitude and positivity when I’m able. Thanks for coming along for the journey.


Today I’m Grateful For…

  1. My family
  2. The warmth of the sun in California
  3. My healing and my process
  4. A clear night sky outside my home
  5. Local Ashland Pizza
  6. Nights you can hear the train go by
  7. Peanut butter
  8. The sound of rain outside my window
  9. Waking up next to my cat
  10. Sharing ice cream with Julie
  11. Talks about life and good advice
  12. Safe travels all summer
  13. My continued education
  14. Waking up and catching the sunrise
  15. Being outside and hammock naps
  16. Warm blankets and cozy socks
  17. Happiness and positivity
  18. My friends and brothers from BSU
  19. A couple deep breaths
  20. Stopping to listen
  21. Signs from the Universe
  22. Gratitude
  23. Embracing change with an open mind
  24. Strong relationships and a little support
  25. The precious present
