Another month in 2022 is in my rearview mirror on my road to express thankfulness. This adventure sometimes becomes a challenging task, but I’m discovering so many things to be thankful for each day. Focusing on the positive despite all the tragedies in the world makes me happy. It motivates me to work toward positive change. Being grateful drives away fear. I can see so many potholes in the road, but I start my day searching for the blessings in my life. These events or things might seem small and insignificant, but they add up to a giant pile of happiness at the end of the road. I am inviting you to come along for the ride. Why don’t we all travel the road of gratefulness in June? This post covers day 306 of my 365 days of thankfulness.
Day 306 of my 365 Days of Thankfulness
On day 306 of my 365 days of thankfulness, I am grateful I logged into NaNoWriMo and entered the book I plan to write. I know, I know, I’m late. Sorry,I put off registering my book every year until I have to start posting my word count. I guess this habit comes from being a pantser and a procrastinator. Plus, I am an old lady and forgot. Stuff like that happens. It’s time to get the party started, so here I go. They seem to change things every year. I am not as excited about competing against myself this year, but I almost feel it will divert my attention away from some of the other projects I’m working more interested in at the moment. I know once I start typing the word, things will get interesting. This story has been percolating in my mind for a year. The idea started forming in my mind when I typed the last words to Amazing Buchanan and the Beast. I plan to roll with the fairy tale theme. This year Red Riding Hood will take on a murder mystery theme.
This old lady is glad she remembered to log into NaNoWriMo and register her book for 2022.
I have learned thanksgiving is a matter of choice. Don’t let anyone tell you differently. Even in dark places, it is good to seek the light. My blessings may not be the same as yours because I’m old. I bet if you dig deep, you can come up with something to be thankful for today. Don’t neglect to see the good things before your face because you hear the world is falling apart. Let me tell you a secret. The world always falls apart when you focus on the doom and gloom. You won’t always find thankfulness an easy road, but it’s an adventure we can all take together. What are you thankful for today? Leave a comment, and bless my heart. I am not being sarcastic when I say that. I could use the encouragement as much as the next person.
