Gratitude Journal – Week 3

Hello hello..Writing this series is turning out to be one of the most wonderful things I have done. It forces me to pause every single day to think about something I am grateful for.

I have spent way too much time thinking about things I lack rather than focus on all the things/people/experiences that make this life oh-so-fabulous. If you haven’t, give gratefulness a shot and I am 99.9999% sure you won’t regret it. 😊

Now let’s get started on week 3 of my gratitude journal..

1.Monday – Holiday and family time

I was so grateful for a day off on Monday as it gave me a chance to have the longest video chat session with family. Nothing in this world means more to me than the fam-jam. #sappy-monika-is-back!

2. Tuesday – I ❤️ Dairy Milk

When I was tiny little Monika, I used to eat a whole bar of chocolate every single day. Yeah my teeth weren’t exactly what a dentist dreams were made of.. AKA 👇🏽

Ofcourse now I eat maybe one in a couple of weeks.. and my teeth are still no dentists dream. 🤷‍♀️

Ok the point is I love love dairy milk and ate the whole bar on Tuesday. Happy tummy = happy Monika!

3. Wednesday – Missed the bus. Worked on the blog

I take the bus to work and it is extremely unreliable in the evenings. If you miss it, the next one comes after 30-40 minutes.

On Wednesday, I was maybe 50 feet away from the stop and bam I see the bus leaving right in front of my eyes. I may or may not have cursed, cried, stomped.. and looked a tiny bit like this.

After composing myself, I took the laptop out and finished the blogpost for Thursday. I initially had plans of getting home and working late through the night on the blog but I guess missing the bus was a blessing in disguise 😊

4. Thursday – Did not miss the bus! The world started making sense again..

And on Thursday I just made it in the nick of time to catch the bus. Clearly majority of my life revolves around “the bus”! 🤦🏽‍♀️ And ofcourse I celebrated this event with pomp and show. 

5. Friday – FRIENDS is the best show ever!

Our dinner routine is incomplete without watching Friends. We have seen the show so many times but it never gets old.

Friday was a tough day and ofcourse I turned to this gem of a series to make the night a bit better and you know it worked out just perfect.. Who is your favorite character from Friends? Mine is definitely Phoebe. I absolutely adore her outlook towards life!

6. Saturday – Plugging off and finding my zen moment

Extremely grateful for a day filled with nothing. I took a day off from technology, kicked back, applied face mask, hair oil, nailpaint, made a bubble bath.. you know the whole shebang. 

And in the evening we made an impromptu plan to go to the mall. I am so glad to have stepped out of the house because the sunset was just out of the world. Oh I can never ever tire of taking a millions pictures of sunsets or you know talking/blogging about them. 🙊

7. Sunday – Morning hikes 

We woke up at 7:30 on a Sunday *I know!* for the love of hiking. It was the perfect end to the week. 

How was your week? What is the one thing that made your heart dance with gratitude?

Thank you so much for stopping by. I’ll see you all soon.. – Love, M ❤️

  1. I love reading your gratitude series. It reminds me that the little things matter more than we think. 🙂 I think I’m going to start jotting down gratitude for daily matters too. Thanks for the inspiration!
