The other day I got an email from a magazine I used to subscribe to (Bella Grace) and it included a link to an item called “30 Days of Gratitude.” It’s a 30-day calendar with a prompt each day to, well, promote gratitude. Here’s the intro:
“There is always something to be grateful for, we just have to keep our eyes and hearts open to it. When starting a gratitude practice, it can be helpful to begin small and seek out one thing each day. For the next 30 days, use our 30 Days of Gratitude Challenge to help you start.”
While I can’t honestly say I’m new to the realm of gratitude, I still thought it would be fun to follow the challenge here, share my answers, as well as link for anyone else who wants to try it. (Click here) Because you can never practice too much gratitude.
Day 1: A song that makes you smile.
Answer: Rick Springfield’s “Don’t Talk to Strangers.” I heard it the other day and was immediately transported to my early teenage years and I could still remember every single word. I sang loudly, I sang badly, and I had a BALL. Makes me smile just thinking about it.
In other gratitude news, I had a really nice run this morning and could still squeak out some colors.
