September challenge: Make an “I’m grateful” list

This month’s challenge comes from a quote I saw posted as part of a public participation art display in my local art gallery:

If you don’t feel grateful for what you already have, what makes you think you would be happy with more?

This September, I challenge you to make a list of all the things you are grateful for in your life RIGHT NOW. Put at least 25 items on the list; more if you want to. Then post the list in a place where you can see it before you go to bed at night and when you get up in the morning. For the rest of the month, read half the list, aloud, every night; read the other half, aloud, every morning. Add new items as the mood strikes you!

You have lots to be grateful for. LOTS. It is important to recognize this truth, and celebrate it. ❤

January challenge: Recognize the present

The new year is traditionally associated with making resolutions for the future, but this January I challenge you to make a list of the things you are grateful for right now, in this very moment.  Write down at least seven to ten things — more if you want to!  Then hang your list in a place where you will regularly see it throughout the day, as a reminder of all the good, the wonderful, the exciting, the fabulous things in your life right now.

Life is about so much more than the future.  Life is where you are right now.  Today, take the time to acknowledge and honour that special place.  It’s yours alone, and it deserves to be celebrated!

Happy New Year! 🙂
