We don't celebrate "Thanksgiving" in Australia but this year, due to my health & difficult family circumstances, I set myself the challenge to look for things to be grateful for everyday. I bought myself a wonderful book called "One Thousand Gifts" by Ann Voskamp which encourages reader's to create their own Gratitude Journal. I have included my own here. I am also following Ann's blog A Holy Experience and I try to link up with her on Mondays & Wednesdays.
Some days/weeks it has been a real struggle, especially with the stressful situations we have experienced as a family. I haven't managed to write something everyday over the last few months, as originally planned, but I am VERY slowly adding to my list.
I am however trying to see positives in every day, even if I don't write them down. It's amazing how changing your focus can lift your mood.
Why not try it??Sharing with:
