It feels so good to end a long day with those little green lines on NaNoWriMo saying I’ve exceeded my word count goal. Sometimes when we’re really worn down in life just those little marks of validation that we’re doing something right can make all the difference in the world when it comes to our motivation and satisfaction.
I’ve found that it’s much better to end a day on a good note, being thankful for the things that are right rather than dwelling on all the things that went wrong. So tonight I decided to list three things I’m thankful for.
- The communities that I have. Seriously, I cannot say this enough. Love and support go such a long way.
- Ideas and the ability to act on them and bring them into reality.
- Self-awareness and the people who are willing to tell me the hard truths to point me toward God and a deeper understanding of myself.
What three things are you thankful for tonight?
