Sometimes life can become monotonous (at least for me). Going to work, going to school, everyday blends into the next and not much stands out. Weeks and months fly by and then before I know it I’m another year older. But then I started thinking and reminiscing on the life I’ve lived and I realized how truly blessed I am. I have lived an amazing life and have experienced some amazing things. I still have a good life, it’s just the blessings look different than they did before. So, as I was reflecting, I thought I would make a list of some of the cool things I’ve gotten to do and see in my lifetime because as I made the list it truly made me thankful. I would encourage you to do the same. This list isn’t meant to show off, it’s meant to be a reminder of how blessed I am.
