And we’re off. Our new 31 day grateful challenge starts today, and it has already made me feel so happy. I almost couldn’t wait to share how grateful I am to be alive in this amazing life, waking up to sunshine and birdsong. Oh grateful challenge, how I have missed thee!
Then I came across this wonderful post from Christine Carter in my inbox and just had to share it with everyone. It’s a really lovely read about noting down the good things that happen, even if you are not a journaler! I totally relate – I must have at least 5-10 notebooks with a few pages filled. And when I read them, I realise that in the past I have often written when I am sad. Re-reading my notebooks can sometimes take me to places of profound sadness. So how important to now also remember to jot down when I am happy, and today is definitely one of those days. I also love her tips about texting your kids. I’m gonna try that next week when my cheeky monkey is back from his Dad’s place. I am already anticipating the funny look on his face to receive a message and photo from me!
In the meantime, hop on over to our Grateful Project facebook page, or tweet or instagram #Grateful31 all those grateful feelings. It’s guaranteed to make a difference!
