And I've found myself wishing I could escape the reality that is my life, at least for a few days.
It's not that I don't love my life. But I just feel an overwhelming desire to focus on me for more than an hour at a time when I workout.
When I saw my friend Britt's recent post about not feeling like enough, it resonated with me and I realized I needed to change my perspective.
I am blessed. Beyond measure. And I am grateful (beneath everything that has been burying my gratitude).
So that's why I've finally decided to take the leap...and tackle gratitude journaling.
It's a concept that isn't new, and Britt (and even Oprah) have been touting it for years. But I've always brushed it off as one of this kitschy ideas, thinking I know what is good in my life and can be thankful for what I have without having to write it down.
But I haven't been. And I want to change that.
My gratitude journaling will be a personal thing for me, with a gratitude jar tucked away in a private location just for me.
And I can't wait to see what blessings reveal themselves as I actively look for them.
