My sweet, sweet vacation is over.
Many years ago, my sista from another mutha, S.T. told me she wrote in a "Grateful Journal" everyday. I did it for a while too and I liked it, so I'm going to start it again. It's also on my list of goals to do.
I think she actually got the idea from Oprah, who says, "List five things that happened this day that you are grateful for. What it will begin to do is change your perspective of your day and your life. If you can learn to focus on what you have, you will always see that the universe is abundant; you will have more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never have enough."
Blah, blah, blah, but sure, I'll try it.
I also have the perfect new book for it. This was a Christmas gift from a boy I teach this year. He told me he picked out something really special for me, and even wrote a message on the first page! I thought it was cute. Now I will never forget what data means.
