Refocus (SOL18 #24)

I've been feeling a little down lately. Nothing major is going on, but I've just felt like I've been in a funk. In order to de-funkify... I am going to list 10 things in my life that I am grateful for. Hopefully this will refocus me, and get me headed in the right direction. **These are in no particular order** 

-Blake, Jack, & Leah- My nephews and niece are a light in my life. Full of personality and spunk they keep me on my toes and my heart full. 

-My job. Although never easy, working with my students each day give me such joy and purpose. They teach me more than I could ever teach them, and I know that I wouldn't want to do anything else.

-We are finally tackling the bathroom. Ever since the day we moved in I hated our master bathroom. It was livable, but nothing close to what it could be. We are finally in a place physically and financially where we can make it the bathroom of our dreams.

-My husband. There is so much about this person that I can be grateful for. Most of all I am so blessed that I am married to my best friend. 

-Spring. It's trying so hard to come. I know the warmer temperatures are just around the corner. I can just feel it. 

-Netflix. I love the fact that I can pull up old series' that I used to watch and just have them on in the background when I need some noise. 

-Making a lifestyle change. At the beginning of the year my husband and I decided that we were going to make some changes to become healthier in the new year. Most drop their resolutions, but ours is still going strong. So far I'm down 20 and he's down 13 pounds and we are both feeling better than we have in years. 

-A scrapper came today and took the broken pieces of cast iron tub from the front of our house. This was a huge relief because I did not want to have to figure out how to get rid of those heavy pieces. 

-My perpetually happy pup. Just one look and snuggle from her can make my day better. 

My supportive friends and family who cheer me on in all I do, and support me when I need it most. 

I truly have so much to be grateful for.


  1. Very nice list. And I feel silly that I haven't tackled a list like this before as a way to motivate myself. Solid slice.

  2. Making "grateful" lists always has a positive impact on my mood too! It sounds like a lot of things are going well for you!

  3. This is such a great list! I'm sorry you're in a funk :( I'm sure once this weather really warms up, that will change. And, spring break is 3 wake-ups away!
