Gratitude Journal


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I keep a gratitude journal. I keep it by my bedside. Every night before falling asleep I write down three things that I am thankful for that happened that day or that is present in my life

This helps me understand that no matter what went wrong that day I still have things in my life I can be thankful about, A thankful heart is a happy heart.

    I used to have one of these as well - loved it!
One thing I do with my school kids is give them a gratitude rock at the beginning of the year & tell them that whenever they touch the rock to think of one thing that they are grateful for. Most of them keep it by their bedsides or on a prayer table.

    I just recently started this. I find myself feeling more peace when I look at all the good people/circumstances that are in my life.

    Thank you Jae for sharing this wonderful secret to success
A gratitude journal is a way to consciously call attention to the things for which we are thankful each day. By focusing on gratitude, we become aware of those things and thus create a shift in our thinking to the positive. Beautiful as always emoticon
