I haven’t written a post about gratitude in years. I need to change that. There’s always something to be grateful for. But first,
Things I’m not grateful for:
-The fact that I don’t have a job yet. I’m trying as I fill out application after application, submitting my resumѐ and waiting for calls. I’m tired of hearing that I’m a good or great candidate but I’m not experienced/extroverted enough. It reminds me of Susan Cain’s Quiet. I’m not apologizing for being an introvert.
Things I’m grateful for:
-My upcoming summer plans. Our school year is over on the 30th of this month. I plan on reading as much as I can this summer. I feel like hugging my books.
-My family. We make each other laugh as fast as we make each other cry. I’m glad that I know each and every one of them. I’m talking about my immediate family. My extended family? Well, that’s different!
-Carrot cake. My local store makes some amazing carrot cake. It’s getting to the point that it’ll be cheaper if I just learned to make it myself.
-Last but not least, all of you guys. You guys are what keeps me going online. I love reading your posts on your lives and thoughts about books, movies, and anything else. I love the letters I receive from you guys and all the nice comments. Thank you. I appreciate every single one of you.
What are you grateful for today?
