The Grateful Journal
Wondering what it is? If you're a fan of "Oprah", several years ago she told her audience to write a "Grateful Journal." And last night she interviewed Lady Gaga and Gaga pulled out her Grateful Journal.
I've been doing it for a couple of years now. Basically it's a journal where I write 5 things that I'm grateful for in a day. Some examples from my Grateful Journal...
August 3rd, 2007:
These things I'm grateful for today...
The Beautiful Sunshine today
My Mom's phone call
Rita's Cherry Ice
September 8th, 2012
These things I'm most grateful for today:
My Aunt Jane
Friendly's Happy Ending...Green Mint Ice Cream
Abby is not throwing up
And the most recent one..yesterday March 18th, 2012--These things I'm most grateful for today:
My Mom and Dad
Watching Abby bowling (Big Brothers Big Sisters)
The Pizza Party
So I was wondering if it's something you do...write in a Grateful Journal! It's something I look back on now and read and it's something so simple like a Rita's or a family member, but I love it. Try it out! It's a way of really appreciating the little things in life that make me so happy.
And I'd love if you'd share a day and date with me about what you're grateful for. If it's only one thing that's ok, too. Maybe only 2 things! Let me know what you're most grateful for in a day in your life.
