I came across this article by Sara Debbie Gutfreund. I’m reblogging this for my 151st reason. Hey, I love that number! It’s symmetrical. I love nature.

Today is the last day I can date something as 2018. It’s the end of 2018 and nearly 2019. I was trying to think of a title for this reason. The end of a year. Living through a year. Reaching a new year. It’s all of it. Everything. It’s the end of another year. I find it weird to be here at the end of a year. The last day of 2018. The last day of a year. I find it hard to believe that an entire year has passed. Didn’t I just write my goals for 2018? Oh gosh, I just looked at that post to link it, and here’s what I wrote: Continue reading “One Hundred and Forty Eight: Moving forward”
Okay, so I’m kinda annoyed, and I guess this is a reply.

Random acts of kindness 101. Bottled water.
We were driving down the road and saw these stacks of bottles. Continue reading “One Hundred and Forty Three: The bottles of water”
I thought this was really helpful. I think I should dress up now! Put on makeup, curl my hair (and post a selfie on here???) Continue reading “One Hundred and Forty Two: 20 Questions to Ask Yourself if You Feel Like Giving Up (reblog)”
Surviving California Fire!
Surviving a major Natural Catastrophe, such as the Northern California, Camp Fire, that burned over 100,000 acres of forestry, including over six thousand residential homes, and many businesses, nearly wiping out the entire town, just two days ago, is a reason to live!
Trying to drive faster than the flames could catch me, with my Australian Shepherd, two meowing cats, and one hay-munching bunny Continue reading “Surviving California Fire! Reason One Hundred Forty One”
