I want to end the year with gratitude. We all know that many horrible things have happened this year. However, some good things have happened in 2020> I graduated with a 2nd Masters Degree, I am loving being a Professional Counselor, and I have a new foster puppy.


Taking all of these things that have happened what are some things that you are grateful for?

Take the time to go over those things in your head, or write them down.


- Happy Monday
