The month of November has always been a time where I reflect on what I am thankful for. This year I made a change. Instead of waiting all year for November to arrive, I tried to contemplate daily on the positive things in my life. It helps keep me focused on the what matters instead of getting down about the things that do not. Truth be told I have been a little down lately. I have been nervous about joining the “Dirty Thirty” club. Yes, you read that right. I turn 30 years old today. A big part of me feels like I should have accomplished so much more before turning 30.
In lieu of feeling unsatisfied I am choosing focus on the many blessings I have been given.
