45 Ways to Appreciate Life

Today is my 45th birthday! Yay! I’m so very thankful for this journey we call life!

Today I want to share 45 Ways to Appreciate life! Things that I’ve found slow the bustle of each day and allow me to be truly thankful for the now.

I take the time around my birthday to plan for a new year and to appreciate what I have. It’s reflective, but it’s also great fun as I get to do things I don’t usually get to do (like go to the spa guilt-free). Something else I get to do is give freely as I examine all that I have and realize how truly blessed I am.

So, today, my gift to you in closing my 45 Days celebration is this list of 45 ways to appreciate life.
