30 Days of Thanks #9

Today I am thankful for many things. Great friends, a sweet little girl, good health, a job I enjoy...the list goes on. But one of the things I am finding with this 30 Days of Thanks experiment is that in being more aware of things to be thankful for, I am more aware. It sounds obvious, I know. But it has been eye opening to appreciate some of the little things that previously went unnoticed.

Today it is my garbage can. For the past 6 years I have had a tall garbage can in my pantry. I hate it. It is taller than the shelves and always feels in the way. And gross. But I couldn't figure out a good way around it. Today I had new insight and swapped things around so my recycling is in the pantry (not as gross as smelly food) and my garbage is in a smaller container under my sink. How did I not think of this before???

I'm pretty sure I deserve credit for that inspiration;) Ok maybe not...
