I've never had the discipline to make a gratitude list every day. I remember Oprah talking about writing down 5 things every night.
I tried it. I think I got 4 days in and then forgot.
In my head I constantly swirl in gratitude. When I get angry, there is that moment when I start to calm down and shift, it comes because I am rolling through what feels better to choose to think or remember than the anger feels.
Saying thank you is a way of living that feels incredible to the spirit. Whenever you do it. However you do it.
Thank you for the glass of water. Thank you for a steaming french press filled with coffee. Thank you for helping me understand. Thank you to the divine. Thank you God, Universe, Joy.
I have a little more adding and subtracting to do, but I've cultivated my Instagram feed to one that lifts me up.
I want to see my best friend's posts. I want to see designers who have a shared love for white walls, cactuses and baskets. I want to see the work of the women I circle with. I want to see the words and photos of the people who are choosing to put out a vibration that raises mine.
The ones who lift you up.
Sometimes a public thank you can create a ripple effect of allowing others to share in the amazingness of that person and in your gratitude.
Social media is not an enemy, it can be a gift, if we choose to use it with boundaries, love and compassion.
Pick one person or send thank you love all day.
Our first day of the hunt.
