I would like to invite you to come with me on an experiment! An experiment in Gratitude. I have deemed this to be a "Gratitude Month". And It's starting today, NOT at the beginning of the month like other events do. I want us to do something spontaneously and I had this idea today so I want to start today. Every successful person takes action and takes it now. So let's start.
Here's what will happen. Each morning there will be a post titled "Today's Gratitudes". Both you and I will be posting our gratitudes for that day in the comments boxes. The reason I have to do it like that is because I'm involved in a major project at work and don't always get to post early in the morning. But I want you all to post whenever you come on and have something you're grateful for. I will post in the comments along with you guys.
Do NOT wait for something big or gigantic to add your gratitudes. "Little gratitudes" become big ones soon. I will be posting things like "I am so grateful that my dog has lasted 2 years following the passing of her sister and that she survived significant problems with her GI tract and we can go for a walk every day." That is not earth shattering but you know what? It makes me very happy and excited that I'm able to go out with her. There will also be things like "I got all the green lights today and wasn't delayed in any way" or "Even though I seemed to hit every red light on the way to work, it allowed me time to say my affirmations". We have to show gratititude for everything in our lives - big and small.
So are you up for this? I really hope you'll participate.
I encourage you to keep a real gratitude journal for at least this month. Once you're in the habit, you'll continue and you'll see your life change dramatically. Make it a point to look for things you are grateful for each day and make it a point to write about them. If you want to use a software program check out our Gratitude Journal (PC only).
Come along with me and see what happens to you over the next 30 days. Pitch in and see what happens to your friends on this site - even if you've never met them.
