That’s right, I am grateful for gratitude today. WordPress was kind enough to alert me that I have written 100 posts on this blog. That means that for more than three months I have taken time everyday to be grateful for something
I think that is pretty awesome.
As someone who has often tried to go to the gym or do other things every day and never really succeeded, I am pretty pumped about this.
I am not wealthy all of a sudden, and in fact the number of people who read my posts daily has actually gone down a little, though it was never very high. The weird thing is that I am still excited about writing this stuff.
I would be lying if I said it was always easy to come up with something everyday, and that probably shows in my writing when I am having a hard time. But I have definitely seen some amazing benefits.
I have met a few other bloggers that I really enjoy reading and that inspire me with their words. I have always known there are millions of blogs out there covering just about everything you can imagine and it has been fun reading more than I ever used to.
On a selfish level I have already mentioned the tremendous achievement I feel just from actually doing this successfully for so long. More importantly, it has also given me great appreciation for how important the little joys in life are when you are struggling, and how much greater the big joys are when you are doing well.
I know my life will be filled with ups and downs of all different types over the next fifty years or so, but I hope that I will always be willing to take a little time to be grateful.
