Gratitude Day 5

Today was a good day. It was a busy day. I had classes for 4.5 out of 5 hours, but it was great. I realized that I am very grateful for my kids. I get to teach a wide variety of kids and generally I like them all. I was having a lot of fun with them today, teaching and making them think for themselves. It was great. I know the other day I was grateful for my job, but this is a little different, I'm grateful for the kids themselves. They make my job interesting, frustrating, head-banging, and fun.

I did not get up and run this morning, I overslept. When I did get up my knee was pretty swollen. It didn't hurt but it was pretty good sized. The plan was to run after work, but that didn't happen either. So day 1 of running was a no go. I am going to get up and run tomorrow, so it starts then.

In just 5 days of gratitude things have changed for me. I have a much better attitude towards everything. I am not focusing so much on the future, or what's going to happen, but on what is happening now. I just feel lighter and happier. I can not wait to see what an entire month does. I may have to keep this up so I can keep this feeling.
