Attitude of #Gratitude: Day 17 of 21

Attitude of Gratitude: Day 17 of 21

Today, I am grateful for…

1. Being able to spend a guilt free day away from work and to not have given it a second thought.

2. The ability, as an adult, to stand up to bigots who make sweeping statements about entire groups when, as a child I was afraid of my own shadow. I’m not going to give today’s specific example but I will say that I was assertive and not aggressive and I stated my point VERY CLEARLY.

3. Sleep. A lot of sleep. Woke at 11am this morning, had breakfast (well, brunch), did a little shopping and then returned home for an old man nap! Must’ve needed it!

Speaking of which, night night 💤 😴 💤

Oh wait, one more thing:

4. All the fatherly figures in my life who’ve changed me for the better.
