Is it too predictable and over-said to say that I actually want to become a better person? Or is it so commonplace that stating it as a new goal is surprising? I don't know everyone's inner thoughts, struggles or goals, so I don't know. But I am actually working on becoming a better person, actively. What is a better person, though? While I hesitate to say that some people are better than others, I know that there are ways that I can make myself better in my own eyes. I want to like myself more, and I know there is nothing wrong with that. Some people will say that I shouldn't try to change myself to like myself more, I should work on accepting myself the way I am, but I don't really see that as the more attractive option.

While I am ALL for scavenger hunts and fun games on a daily basis, I would like to add an element of seriousness to my blog. I will try to add something that I am thankful for or grateful for after each blog post. I think remembering that we have so much good in our lives helps balance the complaints we have for the day, and I usually have a ton of those. I realize this might get tiring if I only come on to blog about that, so I will probably just add it to blog posts that I have another reason for writing. So, to start:

I am thankful that I have people who love me, be they near or far.

I think you're right that it's easy to lose sight of the "important" things/thankful things as we get lost in our day to day tasks.

I'm thankful for friends, and that I will be seeing you all in a couple short weeks. :)
