When my friend, Tricia, and I went on a retreat together, I bought us both the most fun and simple gratitude journal!
It is called “Gratitude with Attitude” and was created by Ronnie Walter and published through our fellow publishing company, Mango Publishing.
I look forward to this journal every day because it is doodly and whimsical and there are great prompts.
I just wanted to share it with you because if you have a friend who is going through a hard time, or just a friend you want to celebrate life with, you could get a copy of this journal for each of you. You could be accountability buddies and text each other every day to share one thing you wrote.
How uplifting would that be?!
Even if you don’t use this journal — or any journal!— you can still set up a daily gratitude texting/email connection with a friend, right? Just text one line or a few words about something that made you smile. How fun would that be?!
I was fortunate enough to get to facilitate a conversation about gratitude with Ronnie and another Mango Author, Irene O’Garden, a couple months ago.
If you need to connect with joy, listen to this conversation about how to connect and have fun, even during the pandemic.
Here’s to turning ordinary days into an extraordinary life!
Seek Celebration — even in dark corners,
P.S. I want you to know that I never, ever, ever recommend anything to you that I haven’t tried — and LOVED — myself. This journal is one of the best, easiest tools, I’ve found for adding more zest and uplift to my day. I love the simplicity and I color in it, too! The link to the book is an Amazon affiliate link. Of course you don’t have to use that link, but it helps support me to continue my work in the world. Please don’t purchase anything that doesn’t speak to YOUR Own heart and spirit. You know how much I love the quote from Ram Dass, “We are all just walking one another home.” When we share practices and tools that help us with others, it is like offering a hand to hold!
