I have a good life.
It’s not perfect (but neither am I).
Sometimes I forget to remember the good things…and I focus on what’s not going the way I want.
I can have unreasonable expectations.
Which is not to say that there are not sometimes reasons to be unhappy and dissatisfied.
But I want to look on the bright side more often and be grateful for all that is good in my little corner of the world.
So, I have made this book out of my handmade paper and I’m going to write down 1,000 things that I am grateful for.
I got the idea from one of the many books that I sorted out to finally read.
Honestly, it wasn’t my favorite book ever. I didn’t read it all the way through. I kind of skipped around and read bits here and there. It had some really good stuff and some simply good stuff and some stuff that was a little too flowery and preachy for me. For now it will stay on my shelf because it has a bird on the cover and I really like birds.
Still, it was worth browsing through for the idea a making a list of stuff I’m grateful for.
A thousand things is a lot.
We’ll see how it goes…I’ve gotten to 42 without too much effort.
I’ll keep you posted.
Until then, I hope your day finds you with things to be grateful for…
