I can’t believe it’s the middle of July already. Where has this year gone?
Here are a few things I’m grateful for this week:
- I’m grateful for my friends in Los Angeles.
You guys, I was so worried about the current state of California in regards to the possibility of another lockdown. I was scared to be by myself during it all because I know that I wouldn’t be able to handle being stuck with my thoughts for days let alone a few weeks. I’m so thankful that my friends let me be with them as we all go through the uncertainty together lol. I’m thankful for the endless laughter that brings me to tears, the dumb inside jokes that only we understand, family dinners/feasts, and the absurd amount of times we visit Vons everyday.
- I’m grateful for my kind coworkers.
After two of my coworkers found out that I had been exposed to friends who had the coronavirus and had been feeling ill, they both offered to bring me soup and to help out with anything that I would need. I felt so thankful to have such kind coworkers. Initially, I was terrified of them finding out because I was worried that they would treat me differently or view me in a bad light. I don’t know, just me overthinking per usual. I’m so grateful that they ended up being the sweetest people ever. So blessed!
- I’m grateful for the waiters and other workers at restaurants.
Before California started shutting down restaurants again this week, I would eat out to try and support local restaurants. I’m so grateful for the waiters and other workers at the restaurants for providing great customer service despite the scary times we’re going through right now. I’m so thankful for the great dining experience that they all provided us.
- I’m grateful for my “One Question A Day” Journal.
The other day, I was reading through my “One Question A Day” Journal, and it made me laugh to see how much changes in a mere couple years. I really wish I had filled this out more than I did because it’s so funny to compare the answers over the years. I’m grateful to have this journal to remind me of memories that I may have forgotten had I not written it down.
It may seem hard to remain positive throughout this pandemic but there really is sooo much to be grateful for. For me personally, focusing on gratitude helps ease my mind through these tumultuous times!! I hope you’re all staying safe and healthy : )
