Grateful is Back


I’m grateful for: This Little Book of Contentment reminding me of real needs vs. manufactured needs. I don’t need the approval of others if I have the approval of myself.

Thank you to: my mother for saying that moving back to Iowa can be an isolating experience instead of telling me whom I should associate with.

Something loving: someone asked for my help today, as this person does often, and I said that I could help in two hours since I’d already made another commitment this afternoon. They found someone closer to help them because they preferred not to wait. I’m proud of offering to help, but also having boundaries.
