I love that writing out the little things that make me happy everyday helps me finish off my month right! This month has been busy with it being the new semester, but also very sweet as I’ve navigated through teaching my first English speaking class. A happy surprise I encountered was that this month has been the most social month I’ve had and I’m totally okay with that. Overall, this month was happy and I have felt very fulfilled; I think choosing to press forward for my word of the year was spot on for me!
I hope your month was equally awesome and you’re welcome to join the linkup by adding any post that expresses any gratitude, happiness, or positivity you experienced; it can be in any other format as long as it is uplifting.
