Day 18: Small moments of creativity and little imperfections ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I have never been much of an artist. But I have always been a perfectionist. Honestly, when @beksjoy gave me this coloring book it stressed me out because the pictures were so intricate I felt I’d never be able to do them “right.” Eventually, I gave myself permission to color outside the lines and be ok with a bit of imperfection. I’ve really enjoyed it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Then my 6 year old nephew wanted to color with me and the extent of my new freedom from perfection was put to the test. He made blue windows and yellow masonry and teal roofs. He ignored my patterns and my suggestions. He colored over things that were already the “right” color. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And we had a marvelous time. Amsterdam has never looked this good 😂 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I am thankful. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #thankful #grateful #blessed #30daysofgratitude #30daysofthanks #nephew #coloring #creativity #adultcoloringbook #perfection #perfectionist #family time #husband #Amsterdam ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
#30daysofgratitude Today I'm grateful for my intuition. <3 The more I listen the better life becomes. However the more stubborn I am the more it pushes me to make me listen even better. Peace is within. Listen to it. What is your intuition telling you today?
#30daysofgratitude Day 18 I am #grateful for #colors , ALL the colors 😃🤗. #brightcolorsmakemehappy I love how colors can compliment our mood and we can express our personalities and own unique style through fashion and color. Colors inspire me and depending on my mood help me bring about different emotions and feelings. Color therapy had been to shown to help people depending on b their own individual needs. Colors are simply amazing and beautiful. I am drawn to greens, purples, blues, yellows, and oranges. But I absolutely love all colors. The world is a much brighter and more joyful world because of colors 😊🙏 #joyful #purejoy #livelifevibrantly #liveinfullcolor
Day 18: As much as I would not want this Illness, I am grateful because it has pushed me back to eating home cooked meals. I don’t eat much from the center aisles in the grocery store. With all things considered. And a last minute thing is an apple 🍎. There are other cons, but I appreciate the life I have been given because of it. #autoimmunediet #30daysofgratitude Thank you for the reminder #celiacteam
#30daysofgratitude Day 17 - Extremely grateful for my "main squeeze". I can't put into words how much I love this man!! He is my rock and my better half. His strengths are my weaknesses. He is the best dad for our kids, and I love how involved he is in their lives. I love that we get to do life together!!!
Day 18 - The family I grew up with. I celebrated Thanksgiving with them today (and sadly took NO PICTURES) and was reminded I have them to thank for the snarky nerd I am today. 🤓 I also really appreciate that they have given me such awesome sisters-in-law, nieces and nephews to love. #30daysofgratitude

Day 18 of #30daysofgratitude 💛 Today, I am thankful for Jesse’s new job. It’s everything that he has been praying for for the past year. It’s been a breath of fresh air for my husband to do something he loves and provide for us at the same time!
Today I am thankful that I got to watch our kids give back at our annual Friendsgiving. They had so much fun assembling bags for children who need meals on the weekends. It was so sweet to see them be so excited to do it together and have so much fun. I can’t wait to drop these off tomorrow ❤️🖤 #30DaysOfGratitude #Day18 #VelociFam #MyFamily #BeKind #BeGenerous
Thankful for amazing bed-head 😆 #30daysofgratitude
Day 18: I am thankful for this family. Meet the Watters: Joel, Rachel, Lucy, Charles, and Annie. This crew is something special ✨. * I met Rachel for the first time at Central College (#godutch ) several years ago. We played basketball 🏀 together for a short season and saw each other at many InterVarsity and Campus Ministry events; however, she was older and we just didn’t really get to know each other well. But I knew one thing, I liked her 🙂 and I knew we could be great friends. But life happened and college years ended and that blossomed friendship I was always hoping for never presented itself. * But God brought us back around when He moved Dan and I back to Pella four years ago. And her family was here, too 😁. But again, life happened quickly and God called THEM to Costa Rica - yep, a long ways away! And the cool thing is, they faithfully followed. Three kids under the age of 3 (they may be a bit #crazy , too 😉) and off they went. But this weekend, they were back in town and we were blessed to be able to provide a roof over their heads for a few days. * Following and supporting their journey with the Lord in Costa Rica 🇨🇷 has been a pleasure this past year or so, but catching up with them in person the past two days, hearing their hearts and stories, and just living life with their family has been a true #joy . Just a young mom and dad on fire 🔥 for the Lord sacrificing their time, energy, comforts (just ask them about “furry spinach 🍃”😳), family, and so much more to follow His calling for their life and the lives of so many others. * We were too busy chatting and eating to capture any photos 📷 this weekend, but it’s safe to say good comfort food (#iowabeef ) was consumed, sledding 🛷, arts and crafts, games of Sorry, and cartoons all went down with a hit, Sunday night football 🏈 (#nbc ) was found, and stories of successes and struggles were shared (along with some balding advice). If you get a chance to meet the Watters, take it. Sit down with them over a cup of coffee ☕️ (#decaf for them after 3pm 😁) and hear their heart ❤️. In the mean time, keep them in your prayers. The Lord is using them in #mighty ways.
#30daysofgratitude Day 18 - Today I am thankful for faithful pastors who feed us from God's Word each and every Sabbath Day!!! God's Will will most certainly guide us! We are called to renounce our wills and submit to the Will of the Sovereign Almighty One True Living God!! #trustandobey #attitudeofgratitude #heavenlyfather #comfortfromgodsword
The Biocleanse - I love this stuff! Eye opening! 👀 If you love sipping soft drinks, caffeinated beverages, eating refined sugars, drinking alcohol, or if you take any prescription medications, you are probably magnesium deficient. Our bodies cannot produce magnesium on their own. We have to get it through our food or through supplementation. When we drink or eat these kinds of things, they flush this very important mineral right out of our bodies. Symptoms of magnesium deficiency include: poor sleep, restless leg syndrome, fatigue, poor nail growth, low blood pressure, fatigue, constipation, mood issues like anxiety/depression, brain fog, etc. Every cell in the body needs magnesium to function properly. Every organ in the body, especially the heart, muscles, and kidneys, needs magnesium too. Magnesium activates enzymes, contributes to energy production, and helps regulate levels of calcium, copper, zinc, potassium, vitamin D, and other important nutrients in the body. It is responsible for over 300 processes in the body! The Biocleanse's active ingredient is magnesium hydroxide, and when it is combined with Vitamin C, it turns into magnesium ascorbate, which is the most absorbable form of magnesium, and also more gentle than magnesium citrate. Biocleanse flushes out toxins, oxygenates the entire body, helps cleanse the gastrointestinal tract, and supports collagen production. With 9 out of 10 Americans being deficient in magnesium, Biocleanse really is the perfect supplement! #cantdowithout #healyourgut #30daysofgratitude
THIS CITY | Gratitude 18. It’s given the world coffee, computers, the Space Needle, Fraiser + Grey’s Anatomy, grunge, Sasquatch, bespoke retailers, online shopping, Super Bowl champs, mountain peaks, Salish Seas, months of grey skies, crystal blue days, and evergreen trees...to name a few. It’s given me PNW pals, family, employment, work/life balance, an outdoor playground, and a place to call home. #30daysofgratitude #day18 #seattle #pnwlife #cityliving #blueskies #homeiswheretheheartis #gratitude
Gratitude Day 18: a full day ended with a beautiful sound bath. I’m grateful that my sis @ariannamarie came home from her trip to Bali today and spent the day catching up with us and sharing her adventures.

Love lessons. Six years ago on November 18 I was wandering the streets of Paris and found the #walloflove . I had moved to Paris for a few months to take a little Life Break. I stood there for over an hour reading “I love you” in all the different languages on the wall. Day 18 of #30daysofgratitude #livingthanksgiving2018 #monthofgratitude2018
Day 18 of 30 day #thankfulchallenge ... I’m thankful for all the mama/daughter dates with this lil’ beauty, spending quality time together and our close bond. I always want our time together to count, as with all my kids, because in only 4 years she’ll be 17 and graduating high school!😳😭 Time truly goes by so fast and I’m grateful for the time that I have had to invest in my children. • ~Speak to your children as if they are the wisest, kindest, most beautiful and magical humans on earth, for what they believe is what they will become.~🌿✨ . . . . . #wildandfreechildren #runwildmychild #myminime #motherdaughter #raisethemup #faithjourney #growingupsofast #lovemydaughter #wanderers #holdthemoments #grateful #thankful #blessed #30daysofgratitude #redeemerchurchofmadison

Art. This was a hard one because pretty much everything I see I consider “art”. However, I’m choosing a drawing my brother made for me in 1988. It’s a drawing of a rabbit, specifically one that was on the wallpaper of my very first childhood bedroom. I eventually outgrew the wallpaper but he captured the image of one small rabbit for me to keep as a visual reminder of my first tiny corner of the world. This is art💛🐰#30daysofgratitude #bunny #art
Grateful for God’s extraordinary power! #30daysofgratitude
“Me quiero salvar haciendo revolución desde tu cuerpo” 🔥#30daysofgratitude #thanksgiving . Day 18: Thankful for poetry. . I picked up poetry again about half a year ago. There is something really cool about those poets that can capture such complex emotions and feelings in just a few lines. It makes you feel like they wrote it just for you 🖤 .
To the mouse who started it all, Happy birthday. . Day 18 1. Walt Disney for all that he imagined and created. 2. The Disney parks and all the magic they hold. 3. My dad for the numerous things he does as an amazing dad, of course, but also for instilling a love of all things Disney in me and constantly reminding me to keep moving forward. . . . . #30daysofthankfulness #30daysofgratitude #positivevibes #rewiringthebrain #waltdisney #disneyworld #disneyland #happybirthdaymickeymouse #happybirthdaymickey #disneyforlife #cantakethegirloutofdisneybutcanttakedisneyoutofthegirl #disneylove #disneymagic #keepmovingforward #instadisney #retrodisney
11/18/18 #30daysofgratitude I have heard Taylor Swift songs on the radio and had them in my phone, but never really listened, like actually paid attention, to the lyrics of many of her other songs. At least not until Sept. 9th of this year. I am very grateful for music in general, but - alongside Demi Lovato - @taylorswift helped me get through a rough patch in the past couple of months. I had her on repeat for about an entire month. Listening to all the songs. From “Haunted” to “Back to December” to “White Horse” to “I Almost Do” and so many others, your music helped me snap out of my slump and find myself again. Thank you for writing your lyrics and making your songs your own. For embracing the negative moments in your life and turning them into masterpieces. #swifties #taylorswift #Reputation
Day 18: Hobbies Books-I love them. I have so many that it’s ALMOST ridiculous. I can’t help it. I just love them. If I could find a way to get paid to read I’d definitely turn this hobby into a full-time job. Books just make me happy. And bookstores...well, to me that’s like a little glimpse of heaven on earth. Grateful for all the places I’ve been and the lessons I’ve learned on the pages of a book. 📚 🐛 #30daysofgratitude #sacredholidays @sacredholidays
Day 18 I’m thankful for my church and for all the people who make it feel like home. As someone who attends alone most weeks I’m grateful to never feel lonely on Sunday. Also kind of an old picture from the women’s conference, anyone recognize the blurred speaker? #30daysofthankfulness #30daysofgratitude #church @forpueblo
Day 18: Headphones, because I no longer have a teenager's taste in music. #30daysofgratitude
Nov. 17 #30daysofgratitude NATURE astounding photos by @jenna.beaner. 💚 Nature isn't my favorite place to be, but I do love and appreciate all the intricacies of creation. 🌳🌊🐢🌄🌻
Happy Birthday, Mickey Mouse! 🎉 In honor of Mickey's 90th birthday I wanted to share the first time I met Mickey in 1997 and Piper's first meeting in 2015! ❤ I'm grateful for this little mouse, along with all of Disney's amazing creations! I'm always filled with wonder, joy, and nostalgia whenever I talk, think about, watch, or visit Mickey! Mickey and all the other Disney characters are so magical and imaginative, and for me that feeling never fades away! I'm so glad that I grew up a Disney kid and now Piper and Jay are too (and I get to share it with them 😊)! Thanks for always inspiring me to dream big, Mickey! 📷:@tamikoc24 #30daysofgratitude #mickey90 #mickeymouse #mickeytrueoriginal ... ✨If you can dream it, you can do it."-Walt Disney ✨
I haven't posted one all week, but I'm thankful for my puppy! She isn't with me right now but hopefully I will see her again!

Nov. 16 #30daysofgratitude SOUNDS. You'll hear three things... 1. My piano playing. Thanks be to God for willing parents, patient teachers, and a hubby who likes to listen to me practice. 🎹 2. My hubby praying over our congregation. Spurring them to be grateful for salvation and to turn their eyes to eternity this Thanksgiving. 🦃 #goinpeace 3. Me NOT singing. I completely lost my voice yesterday. I once looked at losing my voice as a punishment with frustration and anger (it doesn't happen frequently, but consistently). But one time I lost it for an entire month. No singing, limited talking. I felt pretty useless. About half way through that time I figured out the Lord was using this infirmity to teach me to rest. So, don't feel sorry for me if I can't speak or sing. It's the opportunity I don't always take to step back and let others lead for a season. 😶❤️ #sacredholidays
Up and down and up again - this seems to be the way things are going for me lately. Today was ok, but the previous 2 days weren’t so wonderful. I’m trying to keep my head on straight, staying strong and reflecting on the good things. #grateful for the ☀️ and pause to the incessant rain we had last week, but otherwise it’s been hard to see out of darkness. 😕 Yesterday on my way to the #library I passed these flowers I’ve seen around town and got a chance to check them out up close. Anyone know what they are?! 🌱 Flowers are one thing that bring me joy-seeing them in their natural habitat, checking out all the details. And my favorite thing is to keep an eye on my house plants and watch them change as they grow. Seeing each phase. 🌱 Makes sense that I’ve collected quite a few recently...I wish watching my own phases of growth was just as easy. #toyouaplum #namaste #aloha #naturalliving #cleanliving #simpleliving #lifelovehealthhappiness #30daysofgratitude #plantlady #flowerchild #mentalhealth
November 18. Thankful today for Netflix. I know...sounds shallow. But we are unexpectedly out of our house for an additional 3 days (long story that ends in “don’t hire Orkin to termite your house!”), sans enough clothes or entertainment and spending waaaayyyy too much money on daily food. We’ve had an INSANE last few months and this teensy inconvenience took its toll on all of us today-so NOT the vacation we desperately needed. So tonight, we are making use of our Netflix to have free-ish family movie time and heal our frustrated little souls. And yes, I know, first world problems. 🙏🏽 #30daysofgratitude #guardiansofthegalaxy #pleasegodletusgetbackinourhouse #beforethanksgiving #imrunningoutofunderwear
Nov 18 #30daychallenge #30daysofgratitude Inner bliss. Having arrived at a place where I am at peace with myself and my choices, I am grateful for the inner bliss I’ve come to know and enjoy. Finding the balance in my life to really be as present as I can possibly be in every situation has been a long time lesson in the making. I hope that if you are reading this, you get there too.

This girl. Her strength, her intelligence, her incredible courage of conviction, her adventurous spirit, her heart for justice and service, her always joyful disposition (even now, as she’s entered that time in life when it seems the world is trying to tamp it down) — these are just a few of the reasons I am grateful every day to be her mother. #30daysofgratitude #mygirl
#day13 of #30daysofgratitude Art, as I have learnt, is an honest expression of true feelings even at a cost of vulnerability.

Brady- “mommy will you play with me? I don’t have anybody to play with me.” 😔This just gets me to the core. Sometimes I wonder if Brooks was here would Brady be? I’ll never know. God has a plan for all of our lives. I don’t know what His plan is for mine right now in this season of life I’m in but when my child asks me to play with him I’m gonna do it. I’m his mom. I’m the one he depends on. I prayed for him. God gave him to me. I am not going to take any moments I have with him for granted and have no regrets. I’m thankful for these moments that I can just be his friend. #30daysofgratitude
Day 18 - I’m thankful for relaxing Sunday afternoons. We went to church this morning and did absolutely NOTHING when we got home this afternoon. I even got in a 20 min nap! 🙌🏼 Plus look how cute these two are snuggling ❤️ #30daysofgratitude #eastonscottmitchell #thankful #thankfulnovember #bestsnugglers
30 Days of Gratitude—Day 18: Today we celebrated the 70th birthday of our longtime family friend, Merry! Asked how long I’d known her, we figured out that it had been well over 40 years! I have always felt very close to Merry as she is a kind, thoughtful and a ‘tell it like it is’ person. She has been there for me and for my family all these many years. It actually feels like Merry is the older sister that I never had. Yep. She’s that special. (And-second photo—These are Merry’s children. I used to babysit them.) Happy Birthday Merry! I am OH so grateful for you. 🎂❤️🎉 #30daysofgratitude #dilalloland
#30DaysofGratitude #GratitudeDay2 (18/11/18) Three things I am grateful for: Firstly, I am grateful for the new day. Waking with health, the abundance of fresh delicious produce and the unlimited possibilities. Secondly, I am grateful to be waking early with the sun rise, heading out on an adventure with a dear loving friend. Thirdly, I am grateful to meet and marvel the matriarch of this magnificent tree. Spending time in nature today, I felt nostalgic and thankful for the transformation nature has provided for me, by holding sacred space.
Ending my weekend on a high note! Laying in bed watching Greatest Showman with my sweet Emma right next to me. Yup...we co-sleep. And I love it! 💕 Great weekend of decorating for the holidays, Zoo lights family fun and relaxation. 💕Thankful and blessed for moments and weekends like these that remind me what life is all about! 🥰 #day19 #30daysofgratitude #family #blessed
Day 18...piece of art I’m grateful for...another hard one, but corny as it sounds I’m choosing God’s masterpieces. #30daysofgratitude
Today we are Thankful for Indoor Plumbing! What are you thankful for today? We are participating in #30DOT Posting what we are thankful or grateful for. #30daysofgratitude #gratefulhearts #grateful #thankful #thankfulandblessed #thankfuleveryday #blessed #blessings #thankfulness #gratitude #weareblessed #littleblessings #blessedlife #blesseddays #blessedday #pray #prayer #prayers #joy #joyful #givethanks #indoorplumbing
If there’s one thing I’ve learned (and still working on) is understanding my own and the feelings of others! Let’s start with me... I’ve learned to be true about my feelings! To stop complicating or minimizing them to what they should be or what I want them to be! I’ve learned how to communicate my feelings in love! That’s a challenge! As far as others, I’ve grown to understand that although possibly not valid, feelings are real and should be treated as such! It’s never a good idea to try to make someone disbelieve their own feelings! I’m grateful for the willingness and ability to understand myself as well as others.
Day 17: I’m posting this meme IRONICALLY because I am grateful to have a job that I LOVE. I have been working at quest martial arts for over 8 years, and I have yet to have a SINGLE day where I didn’t want to go to work. I’m almost always excited to attack the day’s challenges, as well as see my “extended family.” To be sure, I’ve had days where I want to stay home and relax with @missmotley3 but I’ve never thought “I don’t want to go THERE.” I am truly blessed to have a job where I have fun, I meet cool people, I am successful (yet still challenged daily), I make a good living, and (most importantly) I feel like I am making a difference in my community. Thank you @aaronlawrence6939 and @questmartialarts for the opportunity, and to the entire Quest Family. #30daysofgratitude #martialarts #tangsoodo #mma #teacher #work #livingthedream #blessed #lucky #family
#30DaysofGratitude , Day 18 #SPOILED . My hubby came home with crab legs and salmon. Two of my favs. I prepared them with a little of my favorite seasoning - Old Bay, and paired them with baked potatoes and 🥦. Now to be honest, I only had the 🦀!!! But I shared with my crew some of the bounty. Being born in southern Pennsylvania and spending summers at the shore has left me a 🦀 lover for life! #luckylady #hubbylovesme #healthydinner #suchatreat #eatcrabmeat #delicious #healthyhappyhealed
Day 14 of 30: We are grateful for Leadership. Being a leader isn’t the same thing as having the authority of rank. Being a leader is tapping into the power, knowledge, and insight of the people who support you, look to you for guidance, and work with you to move the needle. It’s about inspiring others; interacting with them with genuine caring; doing the work alongside them; and cultivating relationships built on capability, trust and respect. We are grateful to those who exhibit leadership in the good and the bad times, at any and all levels, regardless of rank.
Day 13 of 30: We are grateful for those many times we celebrate accomplishments together. Sometimes they’re professional like our 20th anniversary, launching our Sunnyvale office, or selling 5 Billion in postage. Sometimes they are personal accomplishments like getting promoted, having a baby, running a marathon, or finishing a major project. We are grateful for the celebration of important milestones that mark our professional and personal growth!
Day 8 of 30 Days of Gratitude: Last night, a senseless act of violence occurred in Southern California. It’s hard to find something to be grateful for among the deep sadness, turmoil, and anger. So today, we challenge each and every person reading this post to an Act of Kindness. Do something wonderful for someone else. Spread love. Help each other remember that there is goodness in people and kindness in the world. With each decision made, we have the choice to be better. Acts of kindness are things we are grateful for. ❤️❤️❤️. Please like, repost, and share. Challenge others. Let’s create a ripple effect that turns into a tidal wave. Let us know you are”in”!
Day 7 of gratitude. This is us. A company is a collection of people. This collection of people have their own stories that have been woven into the story of Stamps.com. We started up just over 20 years ago. We worked tirelessly to rise and we did. But just before the conceit of rapid success could engulf us, the bubble burst. Several years after our founding, we had to downsize hard. We restructured, re-strategized, re-prioritized, and made the slow methodical climb back up through the ashes. It took years. This shared experience, our story, humbled us. It forms the contextual lens by which most decisions are made. It also connects us to our customer base...other small and emerging business who may have a similar story to tell. The changes we make are thoughtful with regards to our past, our customers, and our employees. Our past has made us stronger together. We wouldn’t change that story...we are grateful for who we are because of it.
Day 6 of our 30 days of gratitude! We are so grateful for our family of companies! Each brand is so unique and so different in the products they offer, their culture, their strengths. Like puzzle pieces, our many different companies simply fit! We are grateful for each and everyone one of them for what they contribute as individual companies but also to what they contribute to our overall success and business goals! @shipstation @shippingeasy @shipworks_archers @shipengine_ @metapack_global @the_endicians ❤️❤️❤️
Day 5 of 30 days of gratitude: We are grateful for having and cultivating friends at work. This is related to Day 4 because those friends keep work fun and engaging. Other than that, these are the people we can count on in every occasion. They make great work memories and are no doubt a big part of why we have such great tenure and culture here. Cheers to our work friends!!!
Day 4 of gratitude: We are grateful for FUN! Sounds like a silly thing to be grateful for but though we are all busy adulting and working hard for our amazing customers, we also work hard to have fun. Fun at work is an important part of our culture. From events like Customer Care Week, to Summerfest and Halloween, as well as all the daily laughter and fun that occurs in the Arcade, kitchen, and all around, we are committed to making work a fun place to be.
We started out a small business over 20 years ago. And like most businesses, we had our ups and downs. We were blessed to have great customers and a growing eCommerce industry. On day one of our 30 days of gratitude...we are grateful for our customers. We hope to see you grow! Like. Share. Spread the joy of gratitude!
