Gratitude is defined as an expression of thankfulness or appreciation. It's being grateful for what you have, noticing the beauty around you, acknowledging kindness that has been bestowed upon you. This week, we will explore the benefits of Gratitude and different ways we can bring it into our lives.
Your first assignment to prep you for the week is to select a Gratitude Journal. Pick one that's appealing to you – something you enjoy picking up and writing in everyday. If you’re crafty, make it your own. Glue on some pictures or drawings that make you happy. Something worthy of your Gratitude! Grab a pen that feels good and have it ready for tomorrow. If the online thing is more your style, start a personal Gratitude Blog.
If you missed it in the November ENews, give this list a read through. Gratitude is GOOD for you!
