The Gratitude Garden

1 Jan

“The only way to grow a garden, is to plant seeds.  To live an abundant life, plant seeds of gratitude–count your blessings!  It’s free, and they’re absolutely everywhere.” Elle Febbo

There is no faster way to shift your perspective than to count your blessings, and turn your focus to the goodness of life, and there is no more powerful way to make a lasting positive impact on your life, and in the lives of those around you, than to consciously and cognitively give thanks each day for the gifts bestowed upon you, no matter how big or small. 

It’s magical.

I’ve kept a Gratitude Journal for years.  I recount 5 blessings at the end of each day, and write them down in my journal, in a list of sorts; sometimes the blessing is a whole story, rich with detail and recall, and other times, just a simple sentence or two, (or even sometimes just one word).  I don’t worry about spelling, grammar, or what anyone else might think, although I typically keep them to myself…

This year though, I invite you to take the journey with me as I share the blessings from my daily life, and celebrate the moments that make it all worth while…

Please, count your blessings in a notebook, on your computer, or in a blog of your own, and grow a garden of gratitude this 2012!

Wishing you more blessings than you’ve got time to count,

    “This is probably the most positive blog out there! Each day there is something to be thankful for and this fantastic blogger lists her daily moments of gratitude. In turn, she encourages others to leave reasons to be thankful. I love the reminder to see my day through the lens of gratitude.”

    Thank you, C.B. Wentworth–the appreciation is mutual, and I’m grateful for your acknowledgement! Thank you for all you share and contribute through your unparalleled writing talent. Joy your way!
