Hey there everyone. With the opening of a new month and new opportunity, I want to bring something a little different to this little site of mine. I read a great post from nellytherebel.blog via a Facebook group I am in (shoutout to y’all!), which was titled: “66 Days of Gratitude: Make Gratitude a Habit.” I read it and thought, “this is great.”
1. It provides a simple way to think about the little things. As I’ve beat down on many times on here: I experience major depression and anxiety. Thankfully the depression is in a ‘trough’ right now, but anxiety is still a b*tch. This forces me to think about things that I love daily for at least a little bit.
2. I’ve said time and time again here that I want to be more consistent. This is another way to create content that is authentic and meaningful, while remaining consistent.
With all of that being said, I would like to adapt Nelly’s 66 days to 31….one post for every day this month. To begin, let’s start off with August 1st and 2nd (since I missed day 1….oops.)
Day 1: What food are you grateful for?
This is a hard one, especially considering I love food so much. I am terrible at narrowing things down, but I would have to say chicken. Chicken has never done me wrong, and I love that I am able to enjoy it across so many different cultures and in so many cuisines. *Some* of my favorite cuisines to enjoy chicken are Thai, Jamaican (of course), and Mexican or Cuban food.
Day 2: What movie/show are you grateful for?
These are also very hard since I watch a lot of TV and movies! I have to say, for movie, I am probably most grateful for Batman and Robin (the one with George Clooney, Arnold “the Terminator,” and Uma Thurman). Why? I watched that movie every day when I was young (that and Spawn – judge me, idc). I am grateful for it because even though it wasn’t the best, it reminds me of my parents. I love them so much, and I think it’s funny and patient of them to have let me watch that movie every day. It probably got on their nerves a lot. My dad tells me about it all the time 🙂
As for TV, I will say Daria. Daria is a comfortable show for me. I love it because it’s dry, but it’s also very funny to me. I used to think I had a lot in common with Daria, but I don’t think that is true anymore (sometimes). I do find that whenever I need to relax or put something on to keep me distracted, I jump to Hulu to watch an episode or two
