I woke up Monday morning with a strange idea: why not share with others my Gratitude ?
Many people were aware of the importance of being grateful thanks to The Secret (the book as well as the movie), but now matter how the eyes got opened.
For a few months now, my two daughters and I (it’s harder for my husband) have a little ritual: every day, during dinner or before they go to sleep, each of us list at least three things she liked during the day. From the simpler fact (eating a candy, for example) to something mor “exceptional”, we learn together to appreciate what we have, what we live, what we share. And even if they’re only 4 and 2 1/2 years old, they wait for this moment with impatience, and it’s not rare that they come out from their bedroom, saying “Moooom we forgot to share what we liked today ! So, today, I liked……….; and you, what did you like ?”, and it’s very fun.
I am sure I am not the only one to keep a Gratitude Journal. It is such a good way to remember, later on. It can be only a list, or more elaborate. It’s up to you. And if you forget to do it one day, or more, don’t blame yourself. Don’t be too harsh.
Here is a little dictionary definition of what is being grateful: warmly or deeply appreciative of kindness or benefits received; thankful (source: dictionary.com).
So if it sounds good to you, feel free to share with us, every friday, what you have been grateful for during the week. You can blog about it if you want, and put the link to your post in a widget i’ll insert, so we can have a circle of grateful people we can support 🙂 If you don’t have a blog, we’ll share by comment too.
And don’t be affraid: even if your only grateful for the succulent meal you ate, it’s awsome 🙂
I can’t wait to read you on Friday ! (PS: if you can’t share on Fridays, feel free to share any other day).
