69 things I’m grateful for…

One day, I decided to embark on a project, to write down THREE things I’m grateful for, every day, for 30 days. This should have given me 90 things to be grateful for, but I never to go finish. I started this project with a few very close friends of mine, but none of them went as far as I did.

The purpose of this exercise was the build gratitude and a positive habit in one’s life. Someone said i didn’t need this exercise, but I did it anyways. Here are the things I’m grateful for, collected in the 21 days between April 25 2012 and May 18 2012.
