I helped clean the dishes and the kitchen after my boyfriend cooked us dinner.
I felt good about it because it seemed as if he really needed help and it made both of our days better.

We’re now accountability partners for the gym!
Most importantly, I now think I have a friend at the gym, which has been hard for me.

I took my mom out for lunch on her break from work.
I felt closer to her because we haven't been able to see each other since Christmas.

I listened to the Grateful-ology/gratitude episode of the Ologies podcast.
It gave me a different perspective on gratitude (not brushing it off so quickly) when the science of it was explained. I also found this site which makes a gratitude diary a lot easier than keeping track of a physical journal, which has usually been my excuse to postpone recording gratitude.

I helped this man with a portion of his recovery from a stroke.
I felt a little awkward when he complimented me. I’m kind of conditioned to feel I don’t make a difference and I’m really not a good person.

My 3-year-old told me he loved me while face timing with him.
I work 4,000 miles from home so hearing and seeing him say this made my whole day better!

My colleagues and supervisor showed me compassion and understanding after I told them I have to modify my working schedule for the week.
A weight is lifted from the stress of an overwhelming week.

My coworker helped me get on track today at work. She helped me finish my tasks and gave me great advice.
This benefited me because it made my day at work a lot easier. I also learned a lot more than I would have if I was on my own.

My boyfriend watches my puppy everyday while I am at work and is so helpful.
This made me realize how grateful I am to have him in my life and I love how much he loves and cares for my puppy!

Seeing the dawning sun create a light rim around the clouds in the sky and then send beams into the atmosphere.
It reminded me that light and love is always being shared and extended to us even when we only focus on the clouds.

I’m grateful for my old university team, and even though we are temporarily disbanded, we are still a strong community to get through this and help.
It reminded me how instrumental the boxing was to my time at university, and in shaping me into who I am today. I would not be here without them. While I’m upset by this, I am thankful I had the opportunity and was there at the right place right time.

A co-worker called me to settle a policy dispute between them and another co-worker.
I felt pride that I was the person they chose to call to settle the issue. It made me feel more confident in my knowledge.

A friend bought my ticket to Vegas for me!
I couldn't pay for the ticket right away, so my friend covered me!

I am thankful that I have the opportunity and privilege to go to college because there are many people who do not.
Being able to further my education has a positive impact on my life and the lives of those around me such as my parents.

My therapist helped me to see something about myself that was very helpful and potentially healing.
She was able to shine a light into an area of darkness. With this light, I can see my actions and reactions more clearly.

Today at my job a man offered to pay for the people's order behind him, and then he started a chain reaction and about 8 of the cars behind him kept paying for the people behind them, it was so sweet.
It reminded me of the whole-heartedness of strangers and how random acts of kindness can make someones day a million times better!

I was checking out at the grocery store and a man was in front of me with a cart full of things. I only had two items and he let me go ahead of him.
Saved me 5 minutes of waiting which is nice.

It rained
It has been a hot summer and the garden needed water. It's part of the cycle of life and I love the smell of rain on a summer's day.

Scrolling social media, I came upon a post that included a meme stating the importance of being thankful.
It really tugged at my heart as well and my mental, reminding me that I had so much to be grateful for and that my complaining doesn't help me get any closer to my set goal.

My boyfriend took me to Flagstaff for the holiday weekend.
This made my whole entire weekend, it was nice to get out and hang out at a cabin. We have not been able to go out since Covid started.
