03/14: Thankful Thursday & The “Little Things” that Make a Big Difference
Well, today has definitely been a productive one! I’ve been at Starbucks nearly all day and have finally finished my nutrition paper which is due tomorrow!
Now I can say hello to a relaxing evening ;) How wonderful.
Even though I’ve been staring at the computer screen all day, it just wouldn’t be Thursday without my Thankful Thursday post, so let’s begin :)
Friday, March 8 – On Friday I was thankful for my parents treating my boyfriend and I out for dinner. It was my boyfriend’s birthday, so they told us to go out for a nice dinner! We chose to go to The Keg :)
Saturday, March 9 – On Saturday I was thankful for this amazing message my old babysitter left of my Mom’s Facebook page
Sunday, March 10 – On Sunday I was thankful for my boyfriend really enjoying the dinner I made for him! Even though it wasn’t my own recipe, I was very happy to know I could make his tummy and taste buds happy :)
Monday, March 11 – On Monday I was thankful for the rain! Some times I just love dreary days! The smell of rain is amazing, too!
Tuesday, March 12 – On Tuesday I was thankful for all of the help my Dad gave me with my car. I was having car troubles and needed to get it repaired and he was so much help! He was calling the dealership and made sure I’d have a rental car to drive for the week! He’s the best Dad ever :)
Wednesday, March 13 – On Wednesday I was thankful for the very pleasant cashier I had at Walmart. She said my last name, Doll, suited me so well. She was such a gem and I totally needed her positivity in my life!
Thursday, March 14 – Today I am thankful for all of the positive vibes and encouragement I’m receiving from this post. It’s tough to realize and share that you have “work to do on yourself”, but it’s so worth it and thank you for all of your love <3
Before I close this post, I just wanted to touch on something in a little more depth – that sweet woman I had as a cashier at Walmart on Wednesday…
Just before I went to Walmart and had a pleasant visit with this lady, I was talking to one of my best friends about how a little random act of kindness goes such a long way.
We were talking about how it’s not worth being negative or rude to anyone. Personally, I always treat people like they’re having the worst day ever. You honestly never know. One rude action can really send someone for a loop and wreck their day and I would never want to do that! So, I always try to be positive and a ray of sunshine in everyone’s life.
Being positive only brings light into yours and other people’s lives, so leave this post with a smile and know that little acts of positivity can make a difference in the next person you pass’ life.
Stay positive and I’ll see you tomorrow with High Five Friday! If you haven’t submitted a high five to me yet please do so now! :) For more information on what to provide me with in your email read the HFF page :)
What are you thankful for this week?
Do you like rain?
When was the last time you smiled at a stranger?
