When I’m having a rough day, or things just don’t seem to be going my way, I often find myself in a downward spiral. I look at my life and find flaws in just about everyone. Let me tell you, this is not a healthy habit.
So when I find myself finding flaws in the way I put my socks on (I can’t believe I put the left sock on first. Stupid, stupid, stupid), I try to take stock of my life and focus on the things that I’m thankful for. It’s such a breath of fresh air, focusing on all of the wonderful things in my life.
Enter, the Thank You Journal
So, I’ve decided to start a new blog carnival. It’s called the Thank You Journal (inspired by Mom Advice’s post on Shifting Your Focus To Thankfullness). Each week I’ll be posting a list, long or short, of the things that I’m thankful for. Somethings they will be life changing and sometimes they will just be things that I enjoy. But they will always be people, events or things that I’m blessed to have in my life.
I’d love it if you would join me in this. Each Thursday I’ll be posting my Thank You Journal, along with a linky for you to share your journal.
It’s pretty simple really.
- Link with the permanent address to the post, not the address to your blog.
- Link back to this post (and add the button if you like).
- Visit other Thank You Journals, and comment. Every blogger is thankful for comments.
I hope you’ll join me.
