Day 8 – 52 Good Things

How did today go for you?

I spent the morning swirling as we received more news of postponed jobs.

In a meeting, my coworker posed the question, “How are you getting wound up in negative possibilities?”


I am so. darn. good. at. that.

At the start of the year, I challenged myself to use my imagination for more positive things. I didn’t know of the coming epidemic and I forgot about my resolution as I swam in the dark sea of what ifs.

So, after deep breaths and mental silence, I’m at it again. Focusing and remembering on the good things that make us laugh and bring us sustenance. Trying to imagine big, beautiful possibilities.

This practice can change minute by minute.

50. This t-shirt on Amazon had me laughing out loud

51. I made sourdough bread from salt and flour and water and it’s beautiful and that’s enough.


May we remember to go back to the basics.

As a reminder, send me a note with the good in your world at 52beautifulthings at gmail dot com or a DM on Instagram. Keep em’ comin.

  1. Hi Katie!

    Thank you for helping us to remember the good things.

    My good things from today:

    Homemade, fresh, hot out of the oven, melt in your mouth, butter biscuits.

    YOGI tea with these reminders printed on the teatag: “appreciate yourself and honor your soul.” and “live by your inner knowledge and strength.”

    I’m a teacher out of school for the rest of this year and I’m excited knowing there’s a Zoom meeting tomorrow and I’ll get to see and talk to some of the children from my class. ❤️
