Today I am grateful for:

A quiet mind. As I come into my 30s, I notice that my mind swirls less and less. The voices of doubt have gotten quieter, replaced by voices of reason and strength. My younger self would stay awake for nights worrying about a recent wrong doing, be it an argument with a friend or a slip-up at work. I would worry myself sick and restless about what others thought of me and how that affected the way I viewed myself. Now, when something goes wrong, I do my best to make it right and then let it go. My mistakes are just mistakes. They teach me lessons and make me stronger, sure, but they do not affect me to the core of my being anymore.
