The Best Part of Today was…

I am still writing in this journal and have discovered that I feel more positive and less stressed during the day.

I am also really enjoying The Book Of Awesome by Neil Pasricha, I was shocked at how fast MaryJane’s librarian sent the book! I am almost finished with the book, and it has really made me laugh and ponder simple things. In a way, I wanted to simplify my life a bit more because of this book, so I deleted my blog and the rest of my social media! Yes, even Pinterest.

I want to make my connections more meaningful and really enjoy every present moment of my life.

The hardest part of this badge at the beginning was to not repeat what you are grateful for, but after a week, it came to me rather easy.

Honestly, we have so much to be grateful for, and when we open our hearts and become aware of this, our lives are much fuller!”

My featured Merit Badge Awardee of the Week is … Erin McBride!!!

Erin McBride (notathreatinsight, #3762) has received a certificate of achievement in Stitching & Crafting for earning a Beginner Level Mosaics Merit Badge!

“I made this stepping stone along with another one about 5 years ago. I used precut stone, but I cut the glass myself from a 12×12 tile. It was fun learning how to cut glass. I love the stone mixed with the glass, because the glass gives it some reflection, but not too much.

This was my first mosaic project, and I enjoyed it so much I’ve mosaiced many things since.”
