Gratitude Journal Monday

If you've been looking to make a few changes in your life for the better, here's a great way to start. I know many people who declare 5 declarations of gratitude daily. Good for them. For me, that's way too much pressure and I already can't get everything done with only 24 hours in a day. Enter: Gratitude Journal Monday. It's once a week, and it's on a day that can set the mood for the entire rest of the week! My mind starts to think about my 5 declarations on Sunday evening. It's a nice wind-down to the weekend and a great start to the week. I started here 30 Mondays ago and the benefits have been worthwhile and evident.

141. I am grateful for chirping chickadees outside my window that lift my spirit in their song.
142. I am grateful for really smart people that maintain a level of excellence in all that they do.
143. I am grateful for having a child that understands a handmade costume is something to be proud of because we worked on it together using all his own ideas.
144. I am grateful for kind hearts that give of themselves to better the world.
145. I am grateful to my son's teachers and their dedication to giving their very all in educating and molding the next generation by using (and developing) the most innovative concepts in education today.

Do you have time to start a Gratitude Journal of your own? It will be time well-spent, I promise.

Love your honesty here. I sometimes feel that daily recording of blessings can be stressful . . . like one more thing on the to-do list. But I do find that simply reflecting -- sometimes writing, sometimes praying, sometimes sharing blessings with a friend -- makes an impact on my outlook. Keep us posted on your journey!

Lilly: Thank you for stopping by my blog and commenting! I love your idea of recording your gratitude each Monday because tracking every day is nice, but I feel guilty if I forget. That's never fun. :) I hope that you have a wonderful week. Tricia
