Let's Start 2017 with Gratitude! (Day 1)

I am so excited you are here!  I just saw this video yesterday that shows how psychologists have scientifically proven that one of the greatest contributing factors to overall happiness in your life is how much gratitude you show.  Also, gratitude practice has the most impact for the most unhappy people.

So, if you are unlikely to participate in this 30-day challenge, you will likely get the most out of it.

Just try it for a couple days if a whole month feels too much.  You won't regret it, and I bet you'll find yourself looking back as February rolls around, feeling grateful.   

Today's gratitude dare is simple.  Either print the workbook below, or grab a favorite notebook so you can jot down three gratitudes each day.  It really is that simple.

If you could think of a friend or two who could use a little gratitude, pass the word!  To receive free challenge e-mails in your in-box subscribe below.

Day 1 Jumpstart:
  • Stop what you are doing and look to the left.   In that field of vision identify three things or people that could inspire gratitude.  I like to use this practice when I notice myself complaining.  Stop it, you.  Bah, crabby Evi.  Look to the left.  Notice.  There's always something there.

2016 Thanks! (and an announcement)

Thank YOU.  

Thank you for reading Gratitude Gal in 2016.  I like to write for fun, and having anyone reading along is a big part of what makes it fun.

To celebrate this gratitude, I've created a 30-day Gratitude Challenge for January.  It is both alike and different from the one I did a couple of years ago.  I am trying out some new audio file stuff, and my friend Curt has agreed to share more of his inspiring photography!

So, get your Jock Jams playing because we kick off January 1.  There will be a generous give away from Krafty-Kash (Thank you Kashoan) and a little poetry along the way.  It will be like a funky thrift store of eclectic gratitude.  

Please join in and invite a friend.  To participate all you need to do is find three gratitudes each day and write them down.  By using a part of our day this way, it's like wearing a new set of glasses geared toward goodness for the rest of the day, and who couldn't use that?  

So, let's start off 2017 looking at things with a truer and encouraging perspective.  Stay tuned for a print-out and directions in the next couple of days, or get your favorite notebook handy.

With Gratitude and Cheers to 2017,
