Unending Gratitude

There shall be eternal summer in the grateful heart- Celia Thaxter

A couple of years ago I heard Oprah (on her TV show) say that she keeps a "Gratitude Journal." She said that she wrote down a certain number of things that she was grateful for - every night before she went to sleep.

I took Oprah's advice one day a couple of years ago. Even on the darkest of days I could find several things to be thankful for.

I found myself being more positive by keeping my own Gratitude Journal, which is one thing I am extremely grateful for.

I filled up a journal in record time and then stopped my "gratitude" note taking. The other day I went looking for that journal and realized how much I miss making a record of my daily blessings.

I highly recommend writing down your blessings - things you are grateful for - every day. You don't have to have a fancy journal...just use your computer or any other form that makes it easy for you to do. I think you will be amazed, over time, at how your attitude and outlook on life improves....even if it is good to begin with.
