Very Good Things

This week I’m grateful for:

  • Andrés Felipe
  • Finishing painting the living room & dining room
  • Cuba Libre
  • Officially changing my address & voter registration
  • Cleaning the whole house
  • Wearing Ruby out
  • No-bake Energy Bites
  • Biscuits with honey
  • Ikea adventures with my mom
  • Pear Gorgonzola pizza
  • Assembling the new dresser by myself
  • Ruby being protective
  • Super long Skype dates with my sister
  • Making Andrés’ dirty rice & beans
  • Not living at home anymore
  • The house to myself for the weekend

(For the last 52 weeks, I’ve ended every week by making a list of good things that happened during the week (there’s always something to be grateful for) as a way of showing my gratitude for them because studies show that grateful people lead happier, more productive lives and have more fulfilling relationships. Doing this has helped me notice the good more often than the bad. You can join in by posting your own list and tagging it “very good things”. The idea is originally from Delacroix on Tumblr.)
