One of my resolutions this year was to live a more grateful life. Although I think I have been successful in sticking with it, gradually becoming more appreciative of all I have, rather than dwelling on the things I don’t, I think there is always room to improve.
Since we are more than half way through the calendar year now, when I came across the idea of a 30 Day Blog Challenge, gratitude instantly came to mind.
Yes, I know it is already the 3rd of the month, and so, as with most things, I am starting out late to the party, but I’ll double up on a few days to catch up. Eventually. I hope.
How it works: Everyday of the month, I will post about something I am grateful for. Sure, some days will be easy (hello, chocolate & Pinot Gris) but I am already anticipating having trouble coming up something for EVERY single day, especially days that have been extra long and hellishly awful. You know, the kind of day when I want stab someone with a fork. On those days, my gratitude may be the ability to move my arm to stab said person with fork. I don’t know. This should be interesting.
At the end of the month, I will do a round a post summarizing the 30 things I found myself grateful for. Cool beans?
So, it’s kind of fun, right? Join in and post in the comments of each entry what you are grateful for. Or, if you prefer, make a list as the month goes on and hit me back at the end of the month with your list of gratitude.
Not ready to commit? Simply read the posts and make a conscious effort to become more grateful in your own life. Or don’t. Who am I to tell you what to do or how to live your life. I am not Oprah. Or God. Or Gwyneth Paltrow.
So, participate or not, Ive got my own gratitude to seek out; I don’t have the time to judge y’all. Now, excuse me while I go and find something I am grateful for today…!
