Always Improving

So things have been a little rough around the edges since the season started, and with us being 9 games away from the halfway point, I'm taking some inspiration from here and applying it to my life. I'm also adding some of my own ideas to it.

Be more thankful. I've started writing (err, doodling in marker on half a notecard) something that I'm thankful for every morning. Right now I'm keeping them in my desk for when I feel sad, but I think I'm going to decorate a jar for them so I can have it on my desk as a constant reminder.

Start noticing and living in the present. – Right now is a miracle.  Right now is the only moment guaranteed to you.  Right now is life.  So stop thinking about how great things will be in the future.  Stop dwelling on what did or didn’t happen in the past.  Learn to be in the ‘here and now’ and experience life as it’s happening.  Appreciate the world for the beauty that it holds, right now.

As cheesey as it is, I'm going to start taking time to note that the present is a gift (that's why they call it the present!) I have a lot to be thankful for, and God put me where I am for a reason. I have to step back, be thankful, and open my mind to find out what that reason is for.

And lastly, I'm going to start taking more pictures, obviously to make my blogs more fun, but also because memories are precious, and my scrapbook has a lot of empty pages to be filled!
