Being that it is Thanksgiving here in the United States, it's the time for us to reflect on the things that we are thankful for.
So it made me start to think yesterday about gratitude, and how I use it in my life.
So my Five on Friday will be about gratitude.
1. I believe it started mainly with Opera TV show and her introduction for herself of her daily five things she's thankful for.
I believe that was back in the late 90s
And I had read the book, being that it was one of Oprah's book club, about gratitude and thankfulness.
3. As time went along I was writing less in my journal and writing down what I was thankful for was one of those particular habit I was getting out of. I didn't want to lose what pleasure and benefits I received from this act. So I developed another way and that was to write it down on a slip of paper and to put it into a jar and this is my current jar.
4. There's also another book I had read within the last year, called One Thousand Gifts, if you have a chance you might want to check out the book or her website.
So there goes my list of Five on Friday.
One of the things for today I can say I am so thankful for is that I have the ability to write this and put it out there for others to see and read. If you have any thoughts on doing this or have a journal or app or any way of expressing what you're grateful or thankful for I would love to hear it thank you.
