Day 93

Last Friday I returned to the origins of this project; so much was happening and I was feeling so much that I walked up to one of my favorite little gardens and took an hour to just write in my gratitude journal. The words were finicky at first as my mind, distracted, fixated on anything…

Day 92

Today I’m rejoicing because summer festival season is upon us which means catching up with old friends, meeting new friends, spending even more time with family and feeling all those happy summer vibes.

Day 87

One of the biggest realizations this gratitude project has elicited is that I’m so grateful for my family. You’ve all probably noticed how ubiquitous they are both in my posts and in my reality and for some time, I was embarrassed of that. When I started college, it was as if my closeness to my…
