Gratitude Changes Everything

Gratitude helps you to grow and expand; gratitude brings joy and laughter into your life and into the lives of all those around you.” – Eileen Caddy

 

This afternoon I surprised my friends Antonia and Brooke by taking them out for a quick lunch break and giving them a homemade gratitude journal!

Gratitude changes everything.

This is something I’ve heard for years yet just recently started to incorporate into my daily life. For the past month now I have been listing 5 things that I’m grateful for every day  and 5 things that I’m proud of on my iPhone. I plan on taking my lists and adding them to this new gratitude journal as I start to prepare for Thanksgiving.

It has been a phenomenal experience thus far and I cannot wait to share my journey with you!

I’m officially kicking off this gratitude project to celebrate the 12 days before Thanksgiving! So from November 15th– 26th I will be posting a stanza from this Thankful Poem and sharing with you my thoughts about gratitude. I will also be sharing with you:

– 5 things I’m grateful for

– 5 things I’m proud of

–  Gratitude prompts

–  Gratitude quotes

If you want to join me on this journey of recognizing more gratitude in life please sign up here.

The gratitude project is FREE and you will receive a daily email from me filled with inspiration, joyful suggestions and gratitude prompts. I can’t wait to hear about all the miracles and blessings that show up in your life!

My Gratitude Journal 

10/18
1. Grateful for naturally sleeping a rejuvenating 9 hours
2. Grateful for the first plunge into a hot tub
3. Grateful for sunny, warm California weather in October

Proud:
1. I gave myself a digital detox today & stayed off social media to take a much needed break
2. I bought a Nutriblast and I plan on starting a 6 week juice cleanse
3. Although I initially overcommitted I decided to cancel an event instead of attending and stressing out
4. I’m proud of myself that I went to sleep early
5. I spoke to the checkout lady at the Commissary about making cupcakes. She was so excited about my first adventure that she recommended I use chocolate Jello in the cake mix. I asked her a few more questions and she when she was done giving me advice she beamed “have a wonderful day love and come back any time!”

10/19
1. Grateful I started dreaming again
2. I’m grateful for a delicious, nutritious breakfast & I didn’t drink coffee – no headache 🙂
