What are you grateful for?
I was stressing out the other night, letting the never ending to-do list circle through my brain. Things I need to do, things I should do, bills to be paid, animals to be taken care of, how I never seem to get enough sleep, work, work, work, PRSA. You know the kind of stuff that wakes you up at 2 a.m. and then 3:15 a.m. and then 4:30 a.m.
I was getting kind of down and then I was suddenly struck with just how lucky I am. How amazing my life is. So I stopped thinking about all the To-Do’s and started thinking about the many blessings I have in my life.
Which got me thinking.
What if I focused everyday on the good? I’ve been working on my fitness, but what have I been doing for myself mentally and spiritually? Not a lot. Not really anything.
I’ve heard about people keeping Gratitude Journals and often, since life is so funny, I was reminded of them by my boss this morning. It was just the KITP (kick in the pants) that I needed. At lunch I ran over to Target and I bought both myself and my boss a cheap little notebook that we could keep as Gratitude Journals.
Let’s see how this little experiment goes, shall we?
Do you keep a Gratitude Journal? How do you look after your mental and spiritual well-being? No, really. I need to know.
