Gratitude Post



I truly and honestly enjoy reading Vidya Sury's posts as they are always uplifting even when faced with hardships. She finds great quotes that are truly inspiring. Now she and another lady, Corinne, have started a gratitude post which you post on the last Thursday of the month. It can be your own experience, a story, poem, whatever as long as it has anything to do with gratitude.

We can often recall, vividly, the bad things that happen whether we see it in people, in the media or even within ourselves. We often overlook the positive and gratitude can bring this about. This is the first post about gratitude and one can reflect on the month that just passed. One can keep a journal and it might even be quite helpful.

I am grateful to be part of this blogging world, to read everyone's post about their lives, their books, their humour. I enjoy reading about film and picking song choices. I see beautiful card creations and other creations made from yarn or beads and am truly happy and smile at the uniqueness of each blog. I love the quizzes and also blog hops. I marvel at how amazing some people are in responding and looking at so many blogs and always being a huge support to so many people (Alex).

So I am grateful to you, to be a part of this world...to create and learn from every blog I visit. I humbly thank you!

  13. Such a nice reminder of what is so great about the world of blogging. As my online social activities get more and more fragmented, it's nice to have a place where I can share anything I want. Even if my blog is currently just a place where I post a weekly quiz and I don't check my feeds daily... I really enjoy seeing your creations and reading your very funny posts, seeing pictures and learning about other's travels, reading about lives that are very different than mine, and many other things. A monthly gratitude post is a great idea.

  16. This sounds like a lovely meme to be involved with. I'm definitely going to check it out. In fact, I'm going to put a reminder on my desktop, a direct link to THIS post so I won't forget. lol I'm grateful to be a part of a grand group of friends in Blogosphere. There's so much inspiration and encouragement to draw from at nearly every blog I visit. Thanks for stopping by to dance with me on Monday's Music Moves Me/#BOTB! Have the happiest Christmas ever!

  17. Alex amazes me too. How does he get to all of us so quickly? Clones is the only answer I can think of that makes sense. hehehe

    In my recovery program, we are taught to do gratitude lists. My first one was required to be ten items, not too hard but kinda, my second was twenty - now, that was hard to come up with for me at the time because my world felt so negative. If they asked for a negative list, I could have filled volumes because that's where I was in my life. That list was a way to teach me to focus on the positive and to make my brain go there rather than the negative. It's such a great tool in my toolbox.
