Gratitude

IMG_0405Another project for 2013, yet again stolen from Pinterest, is my Gratitude jar.  Bowl.  Yes, it is a bowl.

Each day, I write down something I am grateful or thankful for that day.  I like this idea.  It helps me to focus on the positive things each day.  Which I hope, in turn and time, will teach me to let go of the negatives.

Sometimes I am grateful for the things I have or things I don’t have.  And sometimes I am grateful on behalf of those around me.  But always positive.

The idea is to write something down each day and then, at the end of the year, you read through them.  I like the idea of looking back over the year.

Very, very soon, I hope to be grateful for being back out on the canal in my running shoes. I can feel it coming.  I am almost there!

Do you have a gratitude bowl?  Or a daily intention?

    Yes! I’ve started a gratitude journal and try to remember to put something down each day. I find it definitely helps keep things in perspective when I’m having a bad day.

      You just reminded me that I did the last couple of days on the plane last night and have to put them in the bowl.

    I’ve thought about this but I think I may do it weekly. I know I’ll never remember to do it every day but I LOVE the idea!!
