These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things

{That I Take For Granted}

I haven't done a favorite things post in awhile, and I could (always) use a good healthy does of optimism.  I sat and thought about regular occurances and items that I should be more grateful for on a daily basis, and realized that I have alot to work on.

Here is the list I compiled of what I will focus on taking a moment to be thankful for in the coming week.  This concept always seems so simple to write about, but it feels so difficult in life.  Why is that?  If you ask me, I am absolutely grateful for all I have and what I am surrounded by. 

Why do I have such a hard time showing my gratefulness?

If you see me, ask me how I'm doing.  Accountability never hurt anyone right?  Although, do not be surprised if I throw the question back at you.  It works both ways!  I think going into things looking for the good rather than the bad is a beneficial frame of mind.  I hope I can grow in this area in the coming months.

1. My Morning Cup of Tea
2. Freedom to Study the Bible
3. An Endless Supply of Clean Drinking Water
4. A Car To Get Me From Point A to Point B
5. The Technology At My Fingertips To Write These Words
6. Early Morning Exercise

These ARE a few of my favorite things, yet I take them for granted every day.  I will savor my tea every morning, relish my Bible, stop complaining about focusing on drinking so much water, appreciate my car every time I get into it, remember the blessing this blog is, and not complain about waking up early to be a healthier version of myself.

Everything listed is a blessing and something wonderful. 

I will work on not taking them for granted.
