30 Days of Gratitude

Holy Shmokes. It’s November. Already. Hot damn.

What are you thankful for?

Are you thankful?

You thankful?


Thirty days of November, and usually the theme of the month is “thankfulness” because Thanksgiving also falls in this month. I’ve seen a lot of pictures or posts on Pinterest and Facebook for a 30 Days of Gratitude Challenge. You know, what family member are you greatful for today? What teacher are you most greatful for? When I know I could write about my sister Kasey and my 4th grade teacher – I decided to make my own. Mainly because I wanted to bring attention to the little things that sometimes we glance over or take for granted.

Feel free to join, or just glance over. You don’t have to blog about it ( i won’t be blogging every day, but a tweet here or there), post about it, talk about it. Just once a day, think of one small thing. Some may be silly, some may be stupid (like really..what SOUND am I grateful for?) but some may just get you thinking.

What smell are you most grateful for?

DoTerra Deep Blue. Tuesdays are rough, two tough work outs of spin class and circuit training (then to throw on top of that the rigorous taco tuesday eating). So I use my deep blue rub on my arms, legs, abs (ha ya okay…”abs”) to help with the soreness. It works and it smells nice too!

52 Lists- Week 2 & 3

I’ve combined these two; I’m trying to catch up anyway! So I’m probably being brief but hold on here we go- lets get crazy!


Week 2

List Of My Greatest Comforts

1. Teen Mom- watching this trash tv show on MTV every monday night really comforts me. I know that doesn’t matter what happens in life I will NEVER have to go through what those girls did- as I will never be a teenager. More power to ya mom!

2. In all seriousness- I find comfort in the rain. It reminds me that not everyday or everything can be perfect. Raining is the sky showing emotion- and everyone should show emotion.

3. As corny as it sounds, I find comfort in  my boyfriend and puppy either having them at home with me at night. Knowing we made it through another work day, we have a roof over our head and I’m sure we had something to eat for dinner! Whether it was healthy…I’m not too sure. Or even just road trip in to races together! I just like the idea of sharing adventures with them.


4. Singing in the shower. I have the greatest voice when I’m in the shower. And I find comfort in the fact that no one else can hear me.

Week 3

List of Things You Should Be Proud Of

1. I’m proud of being 23, having a great full time paying job that makes me happy and being able to support myself for the past 4 years. I worked for what I have, I take pride in the place I live and I take care of the things I own. You take care of the job and the job will take care of you.

2. I’m proud that I can tie a bowline on the fly; and can make boats dance (quote BW ha). I can jump start my own car and I can navigate my own boat.


3. I’m proud of my ability to take care of people. I always want people to be happy and I will go out of my way to make them happy.

4. I haven’t gone crazy yet.

5. I’ve jumped off the most southern point of the United States; and landed in the ever refreshing pacific ocean.

That’s it for now!
