They don’t have to be deep thoughts. It doesn’t have to be complicated. The time spent on the exercise can be as much or as little as you choose. All that’s really important is that you do it… that you regularly practice gratitude, in whatever style suits you best. I promise you, it’s life-changing.
(If you’d like a bit of background on why I started the Gratitude Linkup, check out this post.)

My Gratitude List
In no particular order, here is my own gratitude list for this moment in time. I hope that after reading it you’ll go on to write and share your own!
- Rain that nourishes the earth and makes a comforting sound as it beats against the windows and attic skylights.
- Living in a part of the world where the rain knows its place, and quickly makes way for sunshine and blue skies as soon as it’s done its job.
- Two eggs over hard, three strips of crispy bacon, homefries with onions and a squirt of ketchup on the side, two slices of buttered Ancient Grains toast with jam, and a bottomless cup of good, strong coffee.
- Books that hook you, draw you in, take you away, leave you wanting more.
- Knowing that I am blessed with all that I need, plenty that I want, and a whole lot of my wishes.
- The power, beauty, and wonder of music.
- That feeling of well-being, that moment of utter contentment and joy, when everything feels right with your world.
