A blog is kind of like a front porch. Other people can hear the conversation, but only if they're walking by. I'll use this, instead of the Facebook megaphone.
Today was a day in which I hung on by my fingernails to positivity. Some days are like that. A lot of days, recently. It was a constant battle, and I'm not sure who won.
I've been told by a few trusted sources (Brené Brown, Dieter Uchtdorf, and my friend Steffen) that gratitude is the key to joy.
My real gratitude today (because fake gratitude doesn't work) is for the U of U students who noticed I was having car troubles, talked to me, called the helpful university car people, and stayed until my car was working. They didn't have to do that, and that meant a lot.
I'm also grateful to have friends at work.
Even with my gratitude, I definitely hope for a better day tomorrow!
