While dealing with monotony and dreaming of future adventures, I’m reminded to be grateful for the simple things.

For nature and Alaska. For mini adventures on the weekends that don’t require an expensive plane ticket. For the color green after the longest winter of my life. For too many sweets and the energy to run, lift, and hike them off. For motivation to write and read despite the distractions of social media and Netflix. For my mom and her unending words of kindness and advice. For nieces that may not have the attention span to FaceTime with me right now, but giggle like crazy and say “hi” repeatedly for the first 60 seconds that they do. For a husband that deals with my sass and meets it with incredible amounts of love and laughter. For good health and great motivation. I am grateful.

“Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance.”
