Year in Gratitude... Complete?
I will continue beginning and ending my day with gratitude, but I likely won't do a daily Facebook gratitude statement. I like what focusing on gratitude brings to my life. It makes me feel better. It brings me in touch with love. It reminds me of my inner power. It shows me what's good in my life and what could use improvement. This leads me to realize what I truly want from life.
Embracing gratitude doesn't dethorn the roses, but it does help one decide which roses are worth risking the thorns.
I begin a new writing project this month as I take my year in gratitude project and turn it into a book! I'm excited to embark on this project and hope I continue to learn about gratitude as I delve into my gratitude meditations from last year. And, I hope sharing my lessons from my year in gratitude will help you embrace all the reasons in your life you have to be grateful.
My year in gratitude is just the beginning...
