Gratitude Journal

IMG_1302

This is a place for me to record one thing each day for which I am thankful.  Offering gratitude is powerful, especially when done as a part of a reflective practice.  Make it a habit to pause briefly at some point each day and identify at least one thing (could be a person, place, thing, feeling, etc.) for which you are grateful.  Notice how this practice, when done regularly, changes your overall view of life.  With gratitude comes love, peace, positivity, and understanding…feelings we all could use a bit more of in our lives. So what are you thankful for today?
