Thirty Days Of Gratitude Challenge ~ Day 1

For the next month I am going to list three things that I am grateful for, everyday. I think it’s proper to name it Thirty Days of Gratitude. I know many people wait until November to do something like this, but why wait?

I also think that doing this will help me work through this slight depression that I’m going through right now.

I got my inspiration for this from, Facebook, obviously! Ha!




Thirty Days Of Gratitude Challenge


1. Family

I am extremely grateful for my family. They have been supportive and loving through everything I ever chose to do. Without them I wouldn’t be who I am today nor where I am.

2. Infertility and PCOS

Yes, I am grateful for two diseases. Why? The answer is simple I have learned to fight through some adversity. I have learned that nothing should hold me back from my dreams and desires. Thanks to infertility I’ve discovered a community of women who understand, comfort and cheer one another. They cry with us when we cry, they laugh with us, they curse with us. While both diseases can be treated, neither are cured. I have finally come to accept that and understand it. For that I am grateful.

3. My Career

I am so, so , so grateful to be a blogger/freelance writer. This is what I went to school for. This is what I worked so hard for, only I didn’t know it until I started blogging as a hobby. I had no idea that there was this whole world of bloggers working together, supporting one another, and helping one another rise above each presenting challenge.  Through blogging I have reached, helped, supported, cheered, and cried with women suffering from Infertility, PCOS, and other female issues. I have broken through barriers and allowed their voices, and mine to be heard.


So will you join the challenge? What are you grateful for?

    Listing 90 things in a month? I love the idea of this, and I think I’d like to try it too. But I wonder how much trouble I’ll have trying to think of stuff. I’m grateful for many things, but they don’t all come to the forefront of my mind on a constant basis. How are you planning to cope with that sort of problem? Or do you even think you will have that problem?
