I have a little habit of falling asleep thinking of the things I am grateful for. It is a wonderful way to fall asleep, and I love that these are my last thoughts before I sleep each night. I decided a few weeks ago to take my gratitude to another level, I started a gratitude journal. I am not sure why I did it but I am amazed at how powerful the exercise has become.
I am use to expressing my gratitude within myself and also on this blog, but putting pen to paper, recording my gratitude and seeing the expressed words on paper have been a whole new experience. I really didn't think it would be any different, but it is.
Each night before I turn off the light at my desk, I sit down with pen in hand and write the words Gratitude today for, and then I let my feelings flow out one after the other for everything in my day that I am grateful for, the little things and the big things.
It has a certain kind of magic to it, it fills my heart and soul, it makes me happy and it completes my days perfectly.
