It's been an odd week... I had Tuesday off for New Years, then took Thursday off for fun. It was a bit weird to work Monday, Wednesday, Friday... it felt more like 3 Mondays. I think I'm ready for some regularity in my schedule.

I'm resolving to be more grateful this year. I realize that isn't a measurable goal as I was grateful last year, asking how does one measure ones gratefulness? I will post regularly (at least 3 times a week) what I am grateful for. I will let others know that I am grateful for what they do. I will appreciate myself more... After all, if I don't like myself, others won't either.

Today I am grateful for spending yesterday with my sister at the art museum. Maybe that counts as yesterdays gratefulness. I'm also grateful to have a job at a time when so many don't.

Have a wonderful day universe!

    That's an awesome resolution! I'm also grateful for my job when so many others are struggling.

And that's an awesome idea about the scrap jar for gratefulness! I think I'm going to try that as well! Thanks!

    I found your blog from the yoga lovers group. I really like your resolution to be more grateful.

Our family is trying an idea I saw online- a blessings/gratitude jar. Basically, write down the good experiences on a piece of paper throughout the year and put each scrap in a jar. In New Years Eve you look back on a year of positive memories and events!

  I also am grateful for my job. I find the more I express my gratefulness, the happier I am. Hope it works that way for you as well.
