Today's my 52nd day of gratitude writing, a practice handed down by Rhonda Byrne of The Secret and The Magic books.
Everyday - I do this in the evening - write down at least 10 things to be thankful for. Write what it is and why you feel thankful for it. Then go back to the list once finished. Re-read each one and really feel the gratitude well up.
I use this to de-stress and arrest my tendency to self-penalize. Gratitude is a wellspring of optimism, faith and happiness to what is and what has been given.
Thank you from deep within.
