Going through a divorce is stressful, to be sure. Economic fears, routine changes, shifting expectations and relationships. They take a toll on the brain. During a challenging season of life, I think it’s crucial to take time for gratitude.
It’s been a long time since I did a gratitude post. So here goes!
I’m super thankful for my part-time job.
Even though I’ve been self-employed for many years, I haven’t been a W-2 employee in two decades. This scares off a lot of potential employers. So, I’m grateful that my bosses were willing to take a chance on me. They don’t regret it. 😉
My job makes it possible for me to secure very affordable health insurance and get a company match on my 401K investment.
I can easily obtain stuff I need for my new home, sometimes bought on sale/clearance plus with my employee discount. Now that I’m a female head of household, this is especially important!
So far I’ve needed a new exterior door, a new sink, new toilet, and many other smaller items to build my tool kit.
I’m also grateful that most days, I work in the lawn and garden department.
It’s peaceful and lovely to be among all the plants, and natural lighting is much nicer than industrial.
I’m grateful that my company has tuition reimbursement. I signed up for a personal finance class at a local college and will be taking advantage of that reimbursement, as soon as I pass my final exam.
I’m thankful for a work schedule that allows me to continue homeschooling.
Homeschooling is one of the things I love most about my life. It’s important to me to craft my schedule around it.
Last but not least, I’m happy to be growing my online business.
And in the pockets of my week.
I recently released a new course called Making Money Blogging. I couldn’t be more excited to be doing what I love, teaching women how to make money online!
What are you feeling grateful for lately?
So glad to see you blogging again. After you were a guest at The Frugal Girl I looked for more. Hope this transition in your life leads to more happiness. And by the way, I thought you would be “teaching” a class on financial management, not attending one.
Hi Anne! Thanks for your comment.
No, I’m not teaching a class on finances, although that would be fun at some point in the future when I feel qualified! I’m attending FinCon this year and working on educating myself more.
Found your blog through The Frugal Girl & love your writing. Is there a way to sign up so we know you have a new post?
Hi Diane! Yes, there is a newsletter signup box ? n the right hand side (or at the bottom on mobile), I typically send an email when I write a new post. Thanks for visiting!
