day 18: being bold or at least not letting the crit eek get the best of me

today I am grateful for.. 1. putting aside my shy self and jumping into situations that if I listened to my ‘crit eek’ I would never have even dreamed of doing. 2. freaky dreams and having someone willing to listen to them 3. being inspired by a friend  to plan a date night for myself. 4.Continue reading “day 18: being bold or at least not letting the crit eek get the best of me”

day 16: thank god there were no ants, that’s all I’m saying.

Today I am grateful for: 1. that there were no ants around me when I woke up from a very weird and disturbing dream. 2. that my driveway was still nicely plowed even though they plowed the streets in the night and boxed in the end of the lane with ice and snow.
