Thank you…gratitude journal

A note to say ‘Thank You’ to each one of you who drops by here. It feels wonderful indeed to see comments left behind or a ‘like’ pressed on a blog; akin to a conversation which sort of connected.

I thought today would be a perfect day to write this small note of thanks, since today the 28th of November happens to be Thanksgiving (celebrated mostly in the US and Canada). I find a day dedicated to show gratitude and appreciation a wonderful concept, since in our busy hurried lives we even forget to do that!

The ideal would be to live each day in thankful appreciation. It is not impossible to do so, one has to just learn not to take things for granted, and feel the joy of simple moments. for eg, a steaming hot cup of coffee, or a beautiful sunrise..just about anything! One has to get into the habit of appreciating things. How does one get into the habit of doing so?

May be keep a ‘gratitude journal’ to get into the habit of everyday appreciation? I know it works; it does for me! Move away from the cant’s, the don’ts. Pen down what you ‘like’; it makes an ordinary day into a not-so-ordinary one, the routine jobs into pleasure.

As someone has rightly said…

If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough ~

If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough

If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough

Thank you everyone, once again..

      Thanks so much Amrita. Trust me it works so well, the gratitude journal…take a wee bit of time…in the sense, one feels perhaps a bit shy in writing it down…but it makes an ordinary day..almost special. Cheers!
