Today is my third day of getting back to writing my gratitude lists in order to feel better. It works everytime I do it consistently for at least 10 days; you'd think I would be better at maintaining them, but somewhere down the road I will probably slack and the next thing you know, I'll be back needing to start my lists again.

So, I figured I'd start posting them and invite others to do so. For me, they transform my outlook on myself and life in general; I know it has worked like that for a few others too. The basics are this: make a list of 5 things you are grateful for and of 5 attributes that you have. Make a new list daily. It takes no more than 10 minutes.

Today, my state of mind is worth the 10 minutes. So, here goes...

Today, I am grateful for...
1. The beautiful weather.
2. Feeling the Spirit.
3. Another day clean.
4. The people who care about me.
5. Our fish tanks.

These are attributes I own today...
1. I am a good mom.
2. I seek solutions and not problems.
3. I am a child of God.
4. My behavior matches my beliefs.
5. I love to hug.

I know I am ready to take on the rest of the day now [a little self-affirmation here].

Please include your lists...

Thanks for listening. :)

Thx zen. I was beginning to think I should just share my list with my friend on the phone ~

Ok, here's mine for today:

Grateful for...
1. Sharing family time w/friends
2. Treating others w/respect
3. A car that runs well
4. Pizza
5. Fans that cool me

*Can you tell I had to grasp a little? Now for the even harder part...

My attributes are...
1. I care about those around me
2. I feed my pets (well, it is a good thing - hehehe)
3. I'm willing to do these lists
4. I'm open to new ideas
5. I shower regularly

*Just a bit more grasping, huh? We all have something we can list...[showering maybe? ;-) ]


Thanks for listening. :)

Who's next?
