So today I there was some drama between friends and I was kind of stuck in the middle of the whole thing. But luckily I had a friend who backed me up and eventually resolved the whole thing in my favor. He was insistent that the other dude was just making stuff up and ended up proving it. I am super grateful for him as I don't think people would have believed my story if he didn't step in and help.
The helped me out a ton because not only did it prove that I hadn't done anything wrong. It also showed that the other dude was just lying to start drama. It's good to know I have people like him to have my back.

he listened to me, and my point of view. I feel grateful that someone heard me out because i really needed to rant and for me to explain it properly and to have someone at the very least understand my point of view, even if he didn't agree with it.
it benefits me because i need emotional support. i felt understood and heard. I feel greater love for my boyfriend even though i am generating the love all on my own. I feel more understood, therefore more loved, that's just how my enneagram works. It was sweet sweet release! I released the stress.

I have yet to officially thank/be grateful for the opportunity to be an educator. I have worked hard for years to get to this position. The first few months I was overwhelmed with all of the responsibilities so I did not have time to appreciate exactly what it was that I was doing. Now that I have had time to reflect on my position, and find time for myself, I am remembering why I wanted to be a teacher in the first place. For that I am grateful.
Well, I do not hate waking up and going to work anymore. I am not in a financial position where I will be able to retire in my 30s, or in my 40s, like some of my friends. But I have always believed that teaching is what I would choose to do if money was not an issue. I want to believe these words, and I am in the process of believing.

Today it was super cold and my dad gave me a call right after I got off work. He asked me if I could pick him up from the shop so he didn't have to walk a few miles home. I told him that wasn't an issue and picked him up about 10 minutes later. Afterwards he thanked me by filling up my car with gas without me knowing until afterwards. I said that he didn't have to but he insisted that he didn't mind as I went out of my way to pick him up.
It felt pretty good to drive him around since for the rest of my life he's always been the one driving me places.

My students. The primary reason I wanted to become an educator was that I would have the opportunity to work with students. The interactions that we (educators) can have with students are always amazing. The youth inspire us and motivate us to be better people. Every day I am seeing that through the classroom interactions we have.

One of my students regularly plays Just Dance to workout at home. I tried the game myself over the weekend. I was exhausted after 15 minutes of exercising. This student exercises to the game for over 30 minutes daily. I am more impressed by his accomplishments now that I know first hand how challenging they are. Today in class I jokingly asked him for his help and without skipping a beat he replied that he would be happy to help me. Today was a good day.
This interaction brought a smile to my face. I love teaching.

I laid out my outfit the night before (a new habit that I’m trying to develop).
It made my morning so much easier and less rushed.

My Mom is always supportive of me. I have felt so stressed out with trysting to find a internship and job now that I am graduating. Life was much simpler to just be a student, but my Mom has showed me that life only gets better with meeting new people and opportunities
She always appreciates when I tell her I love her and all of her support.

Every Sunday we have a nice family dinner night with everyone on my moms property. So today what I am thankful for is simply just the ability to spend time with family and enjoy a nice home made dinner with them.
These dinners always me as they always boost my mood while getting to spend time with my close family over good food and a warm fire.

My husband and I went on a 4.5 mile hike with neighbors, who are newish friends. The hike was fabulous, the conversation was easy, the light was gorgeous.
Being in nature feeds me, as does connecting with people on a heart level

My neighbor’s car was alarming all night several times, then it stopped after silencing the car permanently. I was grateful to him to stop that noise.
I had a good night sleep, & I'm feeling happy.
