Gratitude Challenge Week 4:
Monday: Your Hair
Write one thing about your hair that you are grateful for.
I am grateful that my natural hair color is pretty close to what I would ideally want it to be. I haven’t colored or highlighted my hair in years, it’s not exactly how I want it, but it looks pretty close. It saves me a ton of money and is much healthier for my hair.
Tuesday: Your Neighbors
Write one thing about your neighbors that you are grateful for.
I am grateful that my neighbors are my really good friends. It’s so nice to have them next door. We have weekly dinners, there is always someone around to keep you company, and it’s nice knowing they are there if I need them.
Wednesday: Your Commute
Write one thing about your commute that you are grateful for.
I am grateful that during my commute to work I can listen to podcasts. Since discovering podcasts, I have actually started to enjoy my drive to work. They make the time fly by and I feel like I learn something new every day.
Thursday: Your Family
Write one thing about your family that you are grateful for.
I am grateful that I have so many people in my family. I love that on holidays there is a large group of people to celebrate with.
Friday: Your Week
Write one thing about your week that you are grateful for.
I am so very grateful that this past week I was on vacation. I spent time in Bretagne, a small region on the coast of France. My husband spent time here every summer growing up (he is German, so it was a car ride away for him). When I joined him and my mother-in-law on this trip, I had no idea what to expect. But, I must say that it is the most beautiful place I have ever been to.
Saturday: The Weather Today
Write one thing about the weather today that you are grateful for.
I am grateful for the blue skies today. I am traveling all day by bus and I get pretty anxious on the roads with bad weather.
Sunday: Your Life
Write one thing about your life that you are grateful for.
I am so grateful for all the amazing things I have experienced. I have been able to travel to many interesting and beautiful places, meet amazing people, learn new skills, eat delicious food, and so much more. In only 28 years, I have done so much and I feel so lucky to have the life I do.
Remember to follow me on Bloglovin and comment below at least once for a chance to win those adorable journals. I am really looking forward to hearing what you are grateful for.
