Grateful for gratitude

This month I have been reading destination simple from Brooke Mc Alary. A book with every day rituals for a slower life. The first week, I worked on braindumping, which was a way to get everything out of my head on paper.

The second week,  I worked on being grateful and writing this in a daily gratitude journal.  Gratitude journal is a word I heard before. Oprah started a whole movement by telling people to keep a gratitude journal in the 90’s. In short, if you appreciate whatever shows up in our life, it wil change your personal vibration.  So stop focusing on what is lacking, but focus on what you have.

So for a week, I wrote three things I was grateful for everyday. It was easy to be grateful in the evenings. I was able to replay the day and find things to be grateful for. In the morning however, it was a bit harder to be grateful. I did notice, I was in a better mood after writing in my gratitude journal and I did enjoy the daily little things in life. So I will keep this practice up.
