“Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
There is so much written on the power and importance of a gratitude practice.
But many people just don’t do it. It takes effort and discipline to do it. Sometimes we’d rather just languish in negativity, drama, or the status quo of daily life. We numb ourselves with TV, our phones, watching or reading about others’ lives instead of being grateful for our own.
This week’s challenge features a recipe for being courageously grateful.
Find someone with whom you can share one moment of gratitude per night.
Your words of gratitude should start with: “Today I am grateful for …”
You can do this in person, by text, or email. One catch: don’t repeat the same gratitude twice.
This challenge is all about being courageously grateful. And about connection with someone else. Your first step is to draft a gratitude partner. A spouse, friend, child.
For several nights this week share something that you are grateful for. And have your partner share with you.
Here are some resources and ideas for you.
Please share your experiences in a special thread in our private Facebook community page. You will be inspired, and we will inspire you back.
Your team is here for you. Your tribe is here for you. Let’s do this.
