A Fresh Mindset (#50)

I may only be about 14% of the way to finishing my goal but 50 straight days of blogging feels great!

Sometimes I treat my gratitude list like a chore when it shouldn’t be. I’ve decided to start blogging throughout my day instead of just at the end of it. Hopefully that helps expedite my nightly routine and I can go to bed earlier.

I remember starting this blog 50 days ago thinking it wouldn’t be challenging. I was poorly mistaken but it has been a lesson I’ve enjoyed learning. With anything, we must adapt to change. This isn’t a goal I’m going to give up on and finding different ways to accomplish this means fine tuning and good reflection.

50 days down, 315 to go.
