Hi! I like you already. Yes, wonderful you. You are taking the time to learn more about being grateful. I get it. I hope you do too. Check it out…
Starting November 1st, I’m challenging everyone to journal 30 days of gratitude. All you have to do is write down five things you’re grateful for each day of November. You can use an old notebook, my app, keep a photo journal with Instagram; it doesn’t matter! Just be sure to write something each day.
The challenge will last until November 30th and anyone can join at anytime. The goal is to have everyone start on November 1st, but some might not discover this challenge until later. That’s cool. Start when you can.
Of course you don’t have to share your gratitude. But if you choose to, please tag your posts so we can find them.
Instagram: Please tag your photos with #novembergratitude so we can all see them. The list is already growing.
Twitter: Tag your tweets with #novembergratitude
Facebook: I would love it if you stopped by my Facebook page and shared your gratitude for others to see.

November 1st just happens to be my birthday and what a flippin’ cool way to celebrate! Also, here in America we celebrate Thanksgiving the end of November. My goal is to have people all over the globe start a “gratitude habit” by then. They say it takes three weeks to start new habits, so come the end of November it will be second nature for us. Also, I just absolutely love this time of year. Dressing up for Halloween. Family getting together. The holidays slowly kicking in. There is so very, very much to be grateful.
Unfortunately, it’s also the time of year when people become the most depressed. Our focus and priorities are overweighed with consumerism, consumption and all that comes with the holidays. The media paints as the perfect time of year, but I know people who will be struggling just to keep the heat on this year. Celebrating the holidays can be really, really hard.
Gratitude is free and anyone can do it. It has proven to turn attitudes around and has personally helped me through the hardest times in my life. On my birthday, I couldn’t think of a better gift to give others.
