I finished my daily Thank You postings last Monday and spent this week not writing, but thinking about what to write. I’ve landed on an approach I think will work for the next 365 days. I want to use my blog as a way to share gratitude and positivity; stories, ideas, insights–things I come across that strike me and I hope would bring a smile to you. Here’s the first one:
Recently on Face Book, I’ve noticed at least two friends who’ve taken “The Positivity Challenge”. There are a few different challenges with fan pages; for five or seven days you post three things for which you’re grateful that day. Not unlike thanking someone everyday, the thought of stating your gratitude out loud is a pretty powerful thing. According to this article in Psychology Today, if you break the process of being mindful about gratitude into small steps, you can more easily make it part of your daily routine.
Give it try, see if it works for you. You might surprise yourself! Oh, and thank you for stopping by!
