30 Things To Be Grateful For

Devin here. The BIG 3- 0 is approaching for me on Monday. Yikes? Ehh not so much...

I thought the only feelings I would feel around this upcoming day would be about age... "Devin, you're soo old now." But I actually feel quite the opposite.

I feel confident, strong, and balanced. Things are moving forward in a really positive direction in all parts of my life - career, love, and self-growth. I'm looking forward to what's to come. I'm looking forward to being more true and honest with myself. I'm excited when I think about what my 30's will bring me.

With all of these thoughts so focused on the future, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on the past and the present and identify what has gotten me to this point.

I originally made this list for my parents but thought I'd share it here as well. I hope it inspires you to do something similar when you reach a milestone event in your life. Doing this activity flooded my mind with happy memories and love. It was also a nice exercise to help me identify what really makes me happy. I can only hope that it would do the same for you.

Without further ado...
