Monday Appreciation #15: Girlfriend, IRS, and Coffee

gratitude, girlfriends, IRS

This weekend, I was working on my taxes when my girlfriend and I got into a discussion about no longer getting credit for interest paid on student loans because of our tax bracket. On one hand, it’s easy to be disappointed because who doesn’t like getting that fat income tax return? On the other, it makes you truly grateful when you realize that vast majority of America lives on far less income. While additional deductions are nice, they are not necessary and the IRS reminded me that I have so much to be grateful for.

This Monday (and other days), I appreciate:

  • An excellent weekend with my girlfriend– date night, live music, great food. Check out my instagram pics
  • A meeting last week with fellow principals where we discovered that we are not alone!
  • Knowing I’m going to see my daughter in less than a week! She’ll be here for her Spring Break!!
  • This iced coffee I made last night with a dark French roast
  • Having my bills paid for the month
  • Having a new attitude about answering emails and meeting deadlines
  • A job (position) with autonomy so I can adjust my schedule as needed
  • An income that allows me to be comfortable

What’s on your gratitude list today? Shout out to BC for keeping her gratitude lists coming daily.
