I’m not one for trends or keeping up with what’s popular, in fact, I actively avoid all that is fashionable and ‘in’. So my decision to do what is now very popular – the Grateful 365 – almost didn’t happen due to this tendency. BUT I am studying this year (oh my stars, I must be crazy) and I think I’m going to need an intentional act of re-focusing myself on the here and now and what’s really important. The idea behind Grateful 365 (or as my husband pointed out – Grateful 366 this year as it’s a leap year), is to document each day, via a photo, something you are grateful for.
So, today, New Years Day, we visited my mum and dad. They are two of the most important people in my life and I am eternally grateful to them and for them.
As well as taking polaroids and keeping them in a book, I’m going to repeat it here, on my blog. Please do feel free to unsubscribe – an email from me every day could, quite understandably, be far more than is desired by the majority of you.
I nearly decided to stop blogging altogether as I intend to still try and finish my @#$%^& manuscript while I study but instead of canning it completely, I’ll post my grateful page for the day 🙂
So, here is todays, 1st January 2016.
I hope this year is bright and shiny for all of you, filled with all that you need, heartily accompanied by laughter and joy and most importantly, permeated with hope.
