15 days of gratitude: week 1

It's now officially been one week since I started recording five things I'm thankful for each day in my gratitude journal. So far it's been such a great way for me to stay focused on the positive. I truly believe that when we're counting our blessings we feel happier--even during the hard times.

I added some mini alpha stickers to the page tabs to designate the number of the day. I also added a date stamp on a tab on each page.

Some of the things on my daily lists are deep and big, and some are fun and frivolous. I think it's important to appreciate everything--loved ones, faith, and even iPhones and Mega M&M's! =) Most of the items on my lists have to do with things that happened during that day. That way I'm also including a bit of a daily record in the process of counting my blessings.
