Gratitude Posts

I've been having ongoing conversations with a friend that has resulted in many insights and encouragement for me.

One of the things I have decided to do based one of our discussions is to start writing Gratitude Posts.

Some time ago, I used to write thanksgivings on my blog - to remind myself of the blessings that I have received. I intended to do so everyday, but that kind of got too tedious and ultimately I stopped writing, which was a pity. (Does that sound familiar?)

I have now decided to start again in a smaller, more achievable way: A Gratitude Post at the end of each blog entry.

It is exciting because I now anticipate good things that come my way and am learning to be sensitive to them (as opposed to taking things for granted, as I do pretty often). I am well aware that there will be days (probably many) where I will be too tired, too discouraged, too pissed off with people to feel an ounce of gratitude - but I also know for a fact that in the midst of shite there will always be nuggets of gold to notice and uncover.

I hope my dear readers, that you will be encouraged by this new addition to my blog! And do remind me if I forget to do this!

I'm glad :) I was also reminded through a conversation with a friend. Hopefully when you start writing, you'll also be an encouragement to others!

That's a really great idea. I might just copy your idea :)
