Gratitude List: Day 12

by Dian Reid-Jancic· Follow Dian on

I constantly find myself in analyze mode. I’m always looking to grow, looking to learn, digging deeper into that space of authenticity that is me at my core. And sometimes when I do that, I can forget about the little things that make the big things seem that much better. Is it the little things that make the big things better? or the big things that make us appreciate the little things more? No right or wrong answer to that, I’m guessing. So with that, I’ll create some awareness around the little things that I’m grateful for.

39 points of gratitude (the little things):

  1. French toast, especially when I don’t have to make it myself.
  2. Canadian maple syrup.
  3. Tennis sweat.
  4. The way Houston weather doesn’t bother my hair.
  5. Being able to practice Spanish with Gilma.
  6. The invention of the flat iron.
  7. Courteous flight attendants.
  8. Quiet passengers on commercial flights.
  9. My exceptional bladder control. I hope it’s always this good.
  10. The little fold down trays on the seat backs, which make it possible to eat on a plane without having to hold everything in my lap.
  11. Plane maintenance crews. (Okay, maybe this is a big thing).
  12. $5 mini bottles of wine on the plane.
