365 Grateful | Blog




By Renee Bodkin


Realization #1 – I got a new phone this summer and I never saved all of my photos from my other phone.  That needs to get put on the “To Do List” as an “ASAP” thing.  Since I have a LOT of photos on that phone.  A LOT I SAY!


Realization #2 – As I scrolled through my “new phone” to see the “exact day” I got the phone, I realized that although I didn’t blog much this summer.  I have so, so, so (yes that was 3 *so’s*) very much to be grateful for.  We had a really nice summer and I have photos to prove it, darn it all!  🙂


Realization #3 – I need to come up with a plan.  I think I want to continue counting my days of gratitude.  It just will take longer than ONE YEAR to get my 365 days.  Hope that makes sense.


Realization #4 – Or maybe more of “note to self #4” – I need to add pictures to some of these blog posts.


Realization #5 – Writing is therapeutic. Yeah.  Kind of a no brainer there but really… it is.  Finding the right words is sometimes a challenge.  I can’t tell you how many times I’ll type of sentence then erase the whole thing and start over.  But the challenge is in communicating a message in your own personal voice.  I enjoy that challenge.


Realization #6 – As much as I’m not a good cook and as much as I don’t “enjoy” cooking.  I do enjoy having dinner in the oven and a meal planned.  Pork loin, mashed potatoes, and cauliflower.  Yes… I think that works.  Now to meal plan for a week.  Or — gasp — prepare food ahead of time.


Realization #7 – I want to go “back” to the gym.  But how do I start?!  Just like… go?  And I have this membership to World Gym but I don’t like it there.  I didn’t feel comfortable there the few times I went.  And… I want to go back to ChrisFit but… I just don’t know.  Ugh.  I had success there.  I felt comfortable there.  Unfortunately, when my personal trainer left for a job in his field… nobody called to take over my training and that was all I needed to just “throw in the towel”.  I was having a tough time making progress at that point and my mind won out. Excuses aside.  Now how do I get back into the swing of things!?  I’m grateful in the knowledge that I have had success but I am afraid.  There.  I said it.  Not sure what I’m afraid of but my mind is playing games with me and winning!    




Until tomorrow…
