Incorporating gratitude into your daily life is a game changer, so many people are singing its praises, talking about what a difference it has made to them. I have at many different times in my life tried to incorporate this habit into my everyday life. Each time I start out with great intentions and every time I last a little longer but I always end up letting it slide. I am hoping that a little guidance from some wise women will be all the inspiration I need to help keep me on track this time.
Sarah Ban Breathnach in her book Simple Abundance: A Daybook of Comfort and Joy talks about a gratitude journal being an important tool in becoming a happier, more content person. She suggests you visit a good large stationary & book store to search for a beautiful blank book to use as your gratitude journal & a pen to write in it with. Start the book with an inventory of your life’s assets. Now every night before you go to bed write in it 5 things about the day you are grateful for.
