Happy Secret Challenge: Day 6

I am creating/participating in a Happy Secret Challenge inspired by a TED video I recently watched.  

My goal for the next 21 days is to write three gratitudes and to journal about one positive experience from the day.  The gratitudes can be trivial or deep.  And even on the toughest of days there is at least ONE thing that is positive or goes well.  

Gratitude: thankfulness, gratefulness or appreciation; 
a feeling or attitude in recognition of a benefit that someone has received.

The goal is to retrain your brain to begin to look for the positives instead of the negatives.  There are other pieces to the challenge as well but for today we start with these two:

Three Gratitudes:
16. I'm thankful for my Ott-light.

17. I'm thankful for Papa L.  When I was young I lost both my grandparents.  He was nearby when I said, "Who's going to be my grandpa now?"  And he said, "I am."  (Or something to that extent.) He is actually my uncle's dad (not blood related), but he has always felt like my grandpa. 

18. I am grateful for and appreciate the baristas who get up early in the morning to provide people like me their morning caffeine hits.  

I am grateful.

One Positive From The Last 24 Hours:
I didn't bite a students head off today.  Definitely a plus.
