What are YOU thankful for?

Some days I think we forget to stop and smell the metaphorical roses. It’s oftentimes hard to focus on the good in your life if something is going wrong in that moment. 
I went back to look at a pre-baby picture of C and me on the beach and thought to myself wow I really do have so much to be thankful for!


In an effort to be more conscious of all the good in my life, I thought to make a list of 15 things I’m thankful for…

  1. Both of my parents are alive and well. I don’t see them as often as I’d like, but that’s a work in progress. 
  2. I am healthy and able bodied!
  3. I have a husband who loves me unconditionally. 
  4. After having trouble getting pregnant, we have a crazy fun 21 month old who is seriously the light of our lives. 
  5. We have a home in a community that we love. We’re looking to buy a new place, but our current place is pretty fabulous. 
  6. I have friends who are of similar backgrounds and mindsets. They support me in all of my endeavors and encourage me to grow both personally and professionally. 
  7. I’ve been fortunate enough to travel the world. There are so many new places I want to see, but I’ve seriously covered off a lot in the last 10 years!
  8. I have a career, not just a job, that I love. 
  9. I constantly challenge myself to do and be more everyday. I want to continue to be a positive role model for my daughter and any children to come. 
  10. Learning from my mistakes!
  11. Weekends – I need them, to feel rejuvenated!
  12. Laughter – sometimes you just have to laugh…AT yourself!
  13. The kindness of strangers – I can’t tell you how many times I’ve traveled with Little Miss M and have been helped by a person here or there!
  14. Sunrises and sunsets – they’re such a beautiful reminder of life and everything around it. 
  15. Diversity – the world would be a sad place without diversity.
