It’s interesting that we can allow ourselves to move immediately from an attitude of gratitude on Thanksgiving to an attitude of “I want” and “I need” as we are bombarded with advertisements about the latest-and-greatest thing available for the holidays.
This year, I am joining with Amber Starfire in her 31-Day Gratitude Journaling Challenge and I’m inviting you to come along. The challenge is simple: every day write down five things, people, abilities or events that you are thankful for. Simple.
And even though the challenge has not officially started yet I’m practicing today.
Today I am thankful for:
- A safe drive from Washington to Vernon, BC yesterday
- My mother-in-law’s nintieth birthday celebration party this evening
- A good night’s sleep last night (finally!)
- Tim Hortons
- My writing group
Won’t you join me in participating in this gratitude challenge?
