It’s March.already. Time is flying by, but that means spring is around the corner. YAY And since it’s the first Tuesday of the month, it’s time for GratiTuesday, where I review all that I was thankful for and the accomplishments I had last month.
1. My Job My job makes the list AGAIN. Given the recently firings around the office, I am happy to still be employed and getting a regular paycheck. Not to mention, I was given this really cool gift bag that was left over from the gala we had last month. If you follow me on Snapchat then you know all the goodies the bag included. And then we had extra Joy Mangano hangers, so my job gave a bunch of those away to the whole office. NO MORE WIRE HANGERS!!
2. Huffington Post It was never my dream to be published on Huffington Post, but last month I wrote an article that was close to my heart: 15 Reasons Why I Don’t Want to be 40 & Single. I thought it would be a good read for the Huffington audience, so I pitched the story and was approved and published. I was super excited and it feels really good to see your name as a byline for a major news site. I was also able to get my post on the 6 Lessons About Sportsmanship We Can Learn from Cam Newton published on Huffington too.
3. Thought Catalog Since the 40 & Single article was getting a lot good feedback, I decided to pitch it to Thought Catalog as well. The editor liked it and she agreed to publish it as well.
4. Under the Influence podcast A guy name Chris who hosts a podcast called Under the Influence reached out to me in regards to my 40 & Single article. He asked me to be on the podcast and talk about the topic a little more. The podcast was super fun and we had a good discussion. You can listen to it and catch the recap here.
February was pretty exciting from all the good feedback and responses I’ve gotten about the 40 and Single post. I want to continue the conversation about dating over 35, but I’m still working out those details.
So how was February for you? What are you thankful for?
