My Daily Gratitude

Today Saturday, 8/29/2015 I am grateful for the Career Counseling I am getting through SLU. I spoke to my Career Counselor yesterday afternoon and she emailed me the link to take a career assessment evaluation. Can't wait to hear the results!! All of my life when I have taken aptitude tests at school, I hoped they would give me direction and say: This is the field you will do best in. They never did. They would tell me that I would excel in any field I decide to work in. I have varied interests so narrowing down what I want to work in is hard for me to do. Hopefully this evaluation will help me that way.

My Daily Gratitude

Today Friday 8/27/2015 I am grateful for the computer tower I have been using since December of 2013. I paid $109.99 for it then and it has served me well! I remember researching which components I wanted it to have and when I had my little list, I went to Tiger Direct online and found what I needed. It is a refurbished tower and has lasted much longer than I expected it to! It must be 5 or 6 years old by now. With my school money, I have ordered another. I don't want to wait til this one crashes and be worried about getting my school work done.

My Daily Gratitude

Today Thursday 8/20/2015 I am grateful for the ability to get myself better organized. I made some solid progress today sorting through receipts and documents and getting them grouped by year. Next, I will separate them by month and stay on top of that. For several years now I have simply lumped everything in a big plastic bin but no more of that. I am getting organized and it is contributing to making me feel better and stronger emotionally.

Today Wednesday 8/19/2015 I am grateful for comfortable walking shoes! I bought some at JCP's yesterday and I love them. When I look back at the towering high heels I wore in my 20ies I can't believe I could actually walk in them and wear them for hours on end. I love that today I have all sorts of choices and options!

My Daily Gratitude

Today 8/17/2015 I am so very grateful to be back in school. This is my pic of me on my very first day of class in my living room at my desk in my jammies!! I realized last night that one of my deepest fears that I believe contributed to my depression was not being able to develop my skills and talents and fully enjoy the fruit they produce. Now I am back in school enrolled at St. Louis University online which means I can log in from anywhere on the planet and I can wear whatever the hell I want to. Or not. LOLOL
