    Day 8 of 31.

    I am grateful for:

    • The killer parade that will be passing a block from my house tonight. I saw it last year, it is amazing.
    • The work I'm getting done for my career. It's going more slowly than planned, yet, there is progress.
    • My increasing powers of being able to relax myself through my Art Visualization technique. The other night I walked down a busy street while in a hurry, and just visualized people in front of me as paintings on my computer that I was viewing during the process. I was surprised at how much it relaxed me, even in the midst of my situation.

    • Onion rings.
    • The dim blue sky during sunset.
    • The awesome lookout I got to see yesterday on the top of a parking garage.

    Day 9 of 31

    I am grateful for:
    • Not being in debt. I have been in the past, and the feeling sucks! And I am aware of how many still are. Yet I am not.
    • Having a job where I'm working a combined two months of the year.
    • That being said, for the moment at least there is a lot of preparation work to be done on the side. I am grateful for finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel on a burdensome project. Sooner than later, I will be finished with it.

    • The amazing city I got to visit today, up from the big one.

    • Exhaustion. After doing an intense hike today, being sleep deprived this week, and severely taxing my introvert energy, I feel beat. It is a good feeling though, as I know I am approaching the end. I feel accomplished, knowing I have invested my time well and gave my all.
    • My sister's inviting me to their school performance.
    • The car I got to use to travel around with me friend over this past week.

    I am grateful for:
    • My health. I learned yesterday that an old friend is dying of cancer, who is the same age as me.
    • Having the financial means to donate to his gofundme page, as he is also in serious financial trouble.
    • Having a family that loves me, which is something my friend does not have. Some people are in really, really shitty situations.
