|Journal from 1998|
Sunshine, a comfortable bed, clean water to drink, kisses, a job, a smile from a colleague are all privileges of being alive that are too easy to discount.
A change this year: I keep the journal at work and before I leave at the end of the day, I inscribe the five things that I'm grateful for. Being grateful at work, I find, is a little more challenging than being grateful in a warm bed at the end of the day.
No need to have a special notebook but I do like using Sarah Ban Breathnach's original Simple Abundance Journal of Gratitude. You can buy it here, here or here. I find that they make a great Christmas gift that keeps giving all year. What better gift than to remind someone to be grateful every day?
Have you been grateful today? Do you have keep a gratitude journal? What does it do for you?
