So this is a little “end of the day” ritual I’ve started this month, inspired by my aunt Linda. I really wish I’d started this back in February but better late than never! I’m definitely going to continue this for the rest of the journey, and probably life. It’s so nice to take the time to focus on the positive, no matter how lonely or frustrating or boring some days can be. There’s ALWAYS something good.
