Day 52 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge.
Day 52
8/21/16, Sunday.

I took some selfies today to post in my blog forΒ Martien and the Blogophilia crew. I’m not quite done with the blog yet as I have to get up early and such.

I had been obsessing and stressing out over old pictures of an old childhood friend that passed away yesterday. I should have posted pics of her, but I will tomorrow probably.

I have been where Jennifer was. I have been there many times in my life. I have wanted to give up so badly. But there is always something that pulls me back from going over the edge. I always think about my loved ones and how will they live if I were to go through with it.

I get my mind right by exercising as much as I can. Granted I took some time off like two weeks or so because I was sick and I was running around, but I was good enough yesterday and today to exercise and that is what I did.

I don’t exercise to rub it in people’s faces. I don’t exercise to get skinny. I exercise to get in my right mind. It gives me the endorphins I need to give me a more positive outlook on life.

I get off track at times mind wise. I’m only human.

I’m grateful for exercise! πŸ™‚



Day 53 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge.
Day 53
I got too tired to exercise. Especially knowing I have to be at work by 5:30. I’m hoping to get some exercise when I wake up….I need to make this quick.I realized I’m completely grateful for always finding a way to be pulled back from the edge. It’s so easy to go that route, but I’m in it the long way. I don’t want to take any shortcuts. I think I’m tougher than I give myself credit for.Keep fighting! Never give up!

I’m also grateful for good friends and what’s left of my job for the time being.



Day 54, 8/23/16, Tuesday.
Day 54
This is a selfie I took just moments before I passed out trying to create pics for my 365 Day Gratitude Challenge.

I am grateful for sleep. I know I mentioned this before, but I can’t keep my eyes open any longer.


Day 55 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge.
Day 55
I was thinking the worst, but that usually happens when I start getting sick. Today, I was barely alive but no one was able to tell the difference thanks to makeup.

At work, I got a call back from that job. I go tomorrow to get a background check and finger printing done. It looks like I’m going to be an employee there. I’m grateful for surprising moments.

Now, if only I can stop getting a jury summons, everything will be perfect! πŸ™‚

Day 56 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge.
Day 56
Today I went for more interviews. I am hopeful something good will eventually happen. I’m grateful for being hopeful.

I only had four hours of sleep and so between shifts, I decided to get some sleep. Two and a half hours later, I was nearly late for work. I got there at the exact time. I’m grateful I made it on time.

Andy is going to get me a fitbit for my birthday on Saturday! I’m grateful for that too!

That’s all I’ve got for today! πŸ™‚

Day 57 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge.
Day 57
I’m grateful I was able to take a nap and a zumba class after. That was my first class ever. In class, a member asked me where she’s seen me before. I said I work here, and she was like I know, but I’ve seen you somewhere else. She then asked me if I was an actress. I just smiled and said no.

I’m fading fast. Night all! πŸ™‚

Day 58 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge.
Day 58
I am grateful for a loving husband, who doesn’t question me on why I’d rather have a fitbit over jewelry for my birthday. I’ve always been more of a gadget kind of gal as opposed to being a jewelry kind of person.

I am grateful for friends who wished me a happy birthday, though I swear I set my birthday to private. Still, I am grateful and I appreciate all the positive and beautiful birthday wishes.

I am grateful for my son who greeted me this morning with a hug and wished me a happy b’day.

I’m grateful for my little Lassie. She brightens my day always.

I’m lastly grateful for family. I’m grateful for making myself go outside and get out if the house. I can be quite the hermit crab…I try hard not to be that hermit. The struggle is real.


Day 59 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge.
Day 59
I am grateful for my fitbit. I’m a little bit obsessed with the app, but don’t know how to add exercise to the mix. I went on a stationary bike earlier today.I am grateful I can now monitor my sleep habits!
