Gratitude Journal

Last year I read Melody Beattie’s Make Miracles in 40 Days, and actually did it, kept a gratitude journal for 40 days, not skipping a single day.  I went on to have one of the most incredible months of my life. I have since fallen off that track, a year later, but been “thinking” about doing it again.  (Thinking gets me into trouble. Right action is where its at for me)…

So acting instead, I flew into the studio, with only a few hours to spare, and created an gratitude journal by collaging the cover of one of the 34 blank Moleskin journals I have lying around. (I bought a ton of Moleskins on sale, “thinking” I was going to be art journaling everyday for the rest of my life. Haven’t quite gotten there yet.In any event, I only had a few hours to make this, and for me to start this journal, I wanted a cool cover  that would be inspirational to look at everyday.

A few hours is sometimes all it takes, I work best under the gun.

Now a week later, I have not skipped a day of writing in my sweet little journal, 10 minutes each day, all that I am grateful for, all the good stuff and all the stuff that I don’t like as well, because I know that it is there to teach me something…and I have to say, some things are shifting. Coincidence? Hmmm…who knows..doesn’t matter, I’m liking the results.
