Gratitude Journal

There’s a brief description of this exercise here.

Part of the point of doing these exercises is to gradually winnow them down to the ones that are most meaningful for me. I’ve been thinking lately that gratitude ought to come up more often in my list; it always has an immediate impact on me.

For today’s gratitude journal I focused on the strength of my body. My mom had a chronic illness until she passed away some years ago, so I have a reference point against which to be grateful that I move easily and without pain, that my hands obey me, that I can pick up my children and go for walks. These are not small things, and I am grateful for every day I have in a healthy body.

Happy Tuesday!
