looking up

Last May I discovered and fell in love with a
journal. This journal gives me a place to reflect on the positive moments in my day. It didn't take me long to realize what an awesome life I have. Even when I'm having a bad day this journal forces me to extract the positive from a negative situation.

Now I'm taking this one step further, because I hope that by sharing I can encourage others to make lists of gratitude.

  1. Funny. Years back, Oprah was all about gratitude journals. You kind of can't argue with being grateful, but her way just struck me as too smarmy for words.

    Years later, not even thinking about Oprah I started 'My Fine Place' -I guess because it was just getting to be too easy to be negative all the time.

    I wonder why that is? I know, because of my upbringing, I tended toward drama for a long time and if there wasn't any, I made sure I found some. Now I flee at the first sign of it.

    And still, openness and gratitude don't come to me first.

    I DO find that since I've started that particular blog, it does come sooner than it used to.

    I guess it's all in the training.

    I can't wait to see what you'll find..... I already love the pomegranate.
