I had the idea of creating this inspirational list to remind myself that I’m human and that I encounter good days and not-so-good days. I have various feelings that come and go. And during this year where I had a lot of time to sit and reflect, creating this list helped me normalize my thoughts and feelings, as well as provided me with motivation and inspiration. I hope it does the same for you, too. The fourth thing that 2020 has taught and reminded me is:
4. Appreciation, even for the small things.
I’m very appreciative of you, my supporters. Thank you!
Throughout this year, appreciation became a high point in my life. Taking time each day to appreciate all the good in my life, even the simplest and littlest things, has become important. Since 2018, during the entire month of November, I partake in a #thankfulchallenge where I share one thing I’m thankful for from the 1st through the 30th on my social media platforms. It’s quite fun! I enjoy creating the posts and sharing them with everyone. There really is a lot to be thankful for. I try to think of 30 new things I’m grateful for every November. I’ve also realized that sometimes the negatives events that happens in our lives can be a blessing in disguise. They’ve made me come to appreciate them, too.
There’s a new cafe that opened this year, called Conversations. It’s a cute place that has some simple grinds and the most creative drinks. They also sell the cutest knick-knacks. One of their yummiest dishes is the kaleidoscope bagel (see featured image). It’s too pretty to eat. I love how creative the bagel looks, with colored cream cheese, sprinkles, edible flowers, and fruits. It’s really good. They also make kaleidoscope toast.
