Turning 29: 30 things I'm grateful for

Turning 29: 30 things I'm grateful for

I turned 29 today - I thought it fitting to talk about some of the many things I'm grateful for.

  1. Sunshine in almost every day
  2. Reading for pleasure
  3. Being able to write or use my creative muscles 
  4. Strangers who smile and are kind to you, especially on tough days
  5. Coffee 
  6. All of the art walks, music festivals, museums, symphonies, new restaurants, endless hiking trails, and weekly events that Denver has to offer
  7. The peace and quiet on a trail by myself with the sun shining on my face and the crunch of my shoes
  8. Massages
  9. Any free time
  10. Family chats that keep me connected and updated even though they're far away
  11. Jesus and His consistent, constant, and unwavering love for me
  12. Slow mornings where I get to make breakfast and drink coffee out of a favorite mug
  13. Good thrift store finds
  14. Crawling into bed after a long day and being so excited to sleep
  15. Farmers markets and the food, dogs, and trinkets that come with it
  16. Crossing everything off my to do list
  17. The ocean
  18. Opportunities to learn in a constructive way, that reminds me how excited I am to learn
  19. Being a surgeon in training
  20. Being a doctor
  21. A good night's sleep
  22. My health and having my heath issues under control
  23. Watching my 1 year old nephew grow, start walking, and start talking
  24. Sharing life with people
  25. Poems
  26. Photography
  27. Seeing how dedicated and loving people are to each other
  28. Amazon and how easy it is to get something shipped to you when you have no time to shop
  29. Flowers, even though I'm allergic (never stop gifting them)
  30. Traveling and exploring a new place or culture
