Post-Belize Gratitude

Whenever I come back from a trip or experience a major event, I like to do a little gratitude exercise. In this case, I just got back from a week in Belize. While it was absolutely amazing and beautiful beyond my dreams, the trip definitely renewed a sense of gratitude in me. I believe expressing gratitude is essential to happiness, and it’s a nice way to reflect on the experience.
I usually just write the list down in my phone or journal, but I thought I’d share it publicly this time just for fun.

Some of these are due to poor planning/preparation on my part, and others are due to it being a developing country, but all of these are things that I tend to take for granted in my day-to-day life.

I am grateful for: 

  • Clean showers
  • Towels
  • Shampoo/conditioner
  • Less catcalling
  • Non-dairy milk
  • My cooking
  • My apartment
  • Career options
  • Safety/space/ability to run
  • Good plumbing systems
  • Beer options
  • Clean water
  • Water fountains
  • Fast internet


Stay tuned for more blog posts about what I did & ate in Belize– those will be up shortly!

In the meantime, I’ll leave you with a few pics as a teaser…
