Gratitude on Bad Days

I had an emotionally trying week so I made a list of things I’m grateful for:

Working this summer. Otherwise, I’d have too much time on my hands, be bored, and spend too much money entertaining myself. Instead, I’m having fun, learning science, making $, and I get Fridays off.

Last week, we went to the CA Science Center and this week, we went to the Aquarium of the Pacific!


Being healthy. I had my annual check-up and I’m proud of my stats: normal blood pressure obviously, a super efficient pulse of 53, and within a comfortable range with my weight (133 lbs). I’ve had difficulty accepting that I may never be under 130 pounds, but I’ve yet to find someone who can keep up with me and my life.


Supportive friends. I feel lucky to have friends who listen to me and who successfully distract me from myself.

Not so good feelings. I have too many feelings and I can’t untangle them, but hey, I have feelings! I’m doing something right and battling fear of being vulnerable. This means progress!

Good feelings. For the most part, over the course of the last month and a half, I’ve felt great and I’m thankful for the people who make me feel that way, who allow me to SHOW UP and can handle me for who I am.
