Day 31 of 365 Days of Gratitude

Day 31 of 365 Days of Gratitude

The last day of January is here. It came around so fast that I know this year will fly by. I don’t know why it does (the older you get). Perhaps it’s because our lives are busier. Perhaps we need to slow down and smell the roses. In fact I’m sure we do. Stop, relax, look around you and find something that makes you smile. It could be a rising sun, a flower, a child, a pet, rain on the roof, a full letterbox, a comforting hug – anything that makes you feel grateful.

Day 31 I am grateful for:

An imagination that helps me create, because without it I couldn’t imagine the places I’ve never been to and put them into prose (of course good research helps too).


Choose gratitude and improve your happiness. What are you grateful for today?

Day 27 to 30 of 365 Days of Gratitude

Day 27 to 30 of 365 Days of Gratitude

The first month is almost over but the gratitude keeps coming. So far only good things have happened in 2017. I am wondering if it will be as easy to find gratitude if things weren’t going so well. 335 days to go to find out if I’ll still find beauty in days that aren’t so perfect. For now here’s four more days of positivity, happiness and of course, gratitude.

Day 27 I am grateful for:

Having a great job to go to, because everyone else seems to have taken a sickie to have a long weekend (wouldn’t we all love the extra day?).

Day 28 I am grateful for:

Saturday, because I can sleep in (if I want to), I don’t have to think of work the next day and it’s my favourite day.

Day 29 I am grateful for:

My wonderful, kind, inspirational, beautiful, nurturing mum, because it’s her birthday today (I love her today and everyday) and am grateful that I’m lucky enough to be her daughter.

Day 30 I am grateful for:

The sound of Kookuburras, because their raucous laughter makes me happy.


What are you grateful for today?
