101 Things To Be Thankful For

There are so many beautiful things to be grateful for not just this week, but every week. Can't think of anything or just having a hard time coming up with authentic and true answers to the question, "What are you thankful for?" No need to worry, there are plenty of ways to count your daily blessings.

The best way I can recommend would be making a mental or physical list before you go to bed of 1-5 things you were thankful for that day. I started doing this last year and must say it's a pretty good habit that I have acquired. These lists range from moments to feelings to items to my favorite foods. There's no right or wrong thing to be thankful for because it's the ordinary things in life that make it extraordinary.

Take advantage of the holiday season by spending some time to write your own list. This might help you find some inspiration:

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
