100 Things

I’m currently reading the book Chicken Soup for the Soul. Think Positive. 100 Inspiration Stories about Counting Your Blessings and Having a Positive Attitude. One of the stories in the book talks about how when you’re feeling down and stressed and wondering how you’re going to make ends meet, give yourself the challenge of writing down 100 things to be grateful for. That sounded like a good blog post to me, so here goes (and they are in no particular order):
