30 Daily Challenge

During the month of November people tend to do the daily I am thankful for on  Facebook posts. That is great but why not do that in other months? With todays’ news that is being reported and all the negativity and fighting that is going on in the world and life around me I sometimes find myself getting down and wishing that something positive could happen in life. Soooo with all this said I have decided that for my 30 Daily Challenge I will be finding things that I am thankful for each week and once a day I will take a picture of something/someone that I am thankful for.

April 1

IMG_0711My fiance just so happens to be an April fools birthday.  I was thankful to be able to throw him a birthday and celebrate another year of life with him and his family!

April 2

IMG_0723 This is my brother Austin and his prom date. I was so thankful to be able to make the 5hr. drive home to see these two all dressed up.

April 3

IMG_0714I am thankful for Orschlens and their chick days! These are my favorite times to go in and be able to hold the little chicks and take selfies with them. And for the record my fiance said I can have chickens when we get a chicken house built! Next year I hope to have one built!

April 4

IMG_0740Please excuse the clothing attire. But I was thankful that my dad let me go out and check cows/calves with him and he allowed me to take a selfie with the cutest calf! (this was a big deal because my dad thinks selfies are weird)

April 5

IMG_0699Long story short on this day I had to go to the oral surgeon because my wisdom teeth surgery wasn’t healing correctly. The wait to see the surgeon was long so I was thankful for Pinterest in helping me with ideas on how I would like my arbors to look at my wedding. I sure am thankful for Pinterest helping me when I need some creativity in my life.

April 6

IMG_0705 This picture doesn’t do the actual scenerary justice. I am so thankful for the beauty God has created in the clouds and the land. So thankful that spring time is here and that rain storms are going to be here instead of snow.

April 7

IMG_0756On this day I was thankful to be apart of a school that provides me with the education that I need to become the teacher my future students need me to be. I am thankful that this college provides me with teachers who truly care about my education and are willing to meet with me to talk about concerns or questions I may have.

April 8

IMG_0745 After a long week. I was thankful to be able to go for a nice relaxing walk to clear my mind. I was also thankful that I was able to be out in the open enjoying the beautiful South Dakota sunset. (Not as amazing as NE, but it’s still nice)

April 9

IMG_0743Saturday morning I was initiated into this group and it was an honor because not many are asked and you have to have a certain GPA. I was thankful to be chosen because I have never been apart of something like this.

April 10

IMG_0755 Today I woke up to a picture message on my phone. Last night my youngest brother had prom and I was unable to make it back home for his prom. However, I am thankful that my mom took a picture of him and his date and sent it to me. I may be biased but I think they look great!

Week 1 is down and after finding a positive about each day I found myself becoming more and more positive. I can’t wait for more positive/thankful encounters I will have each week.

    I really like the idea of your posts and challenges. I like that you connected the two to create a happy medium and a use for both! It’s the little things that can make a life and most importantly someone’s day! Great post.
