Gratitude with Attitude

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!

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!

 

A l’il weekend zest…

I hope you’re having a wonderful week.

Are you winding down your summer? Or is still in full throttle?

Sending you wishes for a weekend full of ease and playful interactions. May you laugh a lot. May you watch a sunset. May you walk barefoot in the grass. May you sing out loud (on or off key!) to a song you love.

Today I collected for you just a few this and that’s, which I’ve been meaning to tell you about, but just haven’t had the chance.

These are some fun and high-energy video conversations plus some written words.

I hope you hear or read something that gives you an idea of one simple way to experience or give more love.

May they give you some sparks of inspiration + joy!

 

1. I had so much fun during this video conversation with Carrie Roldan. We talked a lot about “How to become your future self.” In other words, how do we begin to live more fully the life that is calling to us? I’m pretty sure I talk about hats a lot in this one! This is a must-listen in you need some oomph and a l’il kickstart!

2. I got to give a love gesture suggestion in Parents Magazine about a version of the Love List for children’s lunch bags. If you are a parent, definitely check out this article for all the ideas! There are some great suggestions to slip some nurturing in with all those luncheon nutrients.

3. Here’s my latest guest post in the wonderful website, Kind Over Matter. This is called, “Make a Date with Love,” and gives you an easy-peasy way to tend to relationships all year long. I hope everyone will try this!

4. For any creative types out there, and you know I believe that is everyone, this is a conversation with Ronnie Walter when she interviewed me for her “Coffee with Ronnie” show. Ronnie is a breath of fresh air and we cover all kinds of topics around living a creative life. Grab your mug o’ joe, or drink of your choice, lie in the hammock, and listen in.

 

I’m off to finish my own morning coffee, meditate, and then live out this brand new day. It is very sunny and I’m headed to the beach with a friend later. I think the forecast calls for parasols.

Sending you hugs and surprises.

Seek celebration — even in dark corners,
