I’m running down to the last minute on this blog post for the week. Instead of finishing my morning routine of writing some reflections of yesterday and aspirations for today in my journal, I’ll leave them here for this 22nd morning of January, 2019.
January 22, 2019
I’m grateful that Erin loves to drive, and for her ability to drive 10 straight hours without needing or wanting me to take a turn. I’m grateful for my graduate school friends, Brian and Rob, and the continuing work all of us put into maintaining a great relationship since leaving grad school back in 2005. I’m grateful to have found out my attempt at passing the IFM Exam back in November was a successful one.
Today, and this week, I want to focus more on my relationship with my wife. I want to be more careful of letting snide comments out, and remember that my partner for life deserves better. Instead, I will either keep my mouth shut, or find something more supportive to say in those moments.
Since I just returned from a craft beer expedition in Michigan, I want to take a break for the rest of the week from any craft beer, and focus on getting a few more workouts in, instead.
The benefits of a daily routine of reflection are vast. What are you grateful for in your life? What can you improve upon today?
