From this class I feel I have become more thankful for the little things in life. Most days we are instructed to write down 3 gratitudes and it has really opened my eyes to how much I have in my life. Typically when someone says to write down something I’m thankful I just say the usuals. For example, things like family, friends, school, etc. However, everytime we write gratitudes I don’t want to repeat the things I have said in the past, so I have to dig a little deeper. Not only has it made me more creative, but it has also shown all that I have to be thankful for. Even something as simple as waking up in the morning is something to be thankful for. This class has taught me all the different ways to look at life. Whether it’s happy or sad, there are always things to be grateful for. Specifically in my life sometimes I act like there’s nothing that makes me happy, but really there’s so much, and that is something that this class has really made me aware of.
