As many of you know I just completed a 365 Day Adventure / Challenge on December 23, 2011.
I have been thinking about my next 365 Day Project and I believe I have found it. It needs to be something fun and worthwhile and this morning it came to mind. And I hope you will join me.
This could be a great project for a program or school. No real tricks here. Just fun for everyone!
This last year has brought many, many changes, challenges and what I had originally perceived as disappointments to my life and there have been days when I was feeling really down. I know I have had days where I have felt incredibly out of sorts with life.
I really wasn’t enjoying myself!
I have kept a gratitude journal, and that is nice, but I need more. Last night I was sitting on my steps out front and watching the sunset and I realized that the little moments are really special and if I do not take the time to notice them they will be lost forever. I don’t have a camera, so I am going to be using my iPhone, or perhaps I will buy a small digital camera. But anything can be used. This is not about photography. This is about gratitude and seeing it each and every day.
Whether I am alone or with someone, here or there, doing nothing or doing something special, healthy or not feeling well, no matter what the weather ….. I am grateful about something or someone each and every day!
I want to take one photo every day for 365 days of something or someone I am grateful for and really re-program my brain and my heart.
I have no doubt, just like with my last challenge, that at times it will seem difficult to keep going for such a long period of time.
However, I lost 60 pounds in a year with my last challenge and I am keeping up with a trainer, eating well, seeing a nutritionist and so forth. It has changed my life!
I can set up a blog or a page on Facebook where we can all share our daily gratitude pictures.
I want to cultivate the feeling of gratitude by practicing silently and by giving thanks for the good every moment I have. Please contact me and let me know your interest.
I have not picked a starting date as yet ….. but it will be soon!
