Recently in groups that I am leading (teacher trainings and my Graduate Project-Women, Spirituality & Well-being) and in private coaching sessions there seems to be a theme of GRATITUDE. And so I want to share with you my idea of a Gratitude Journal Project – and it’s fitting that it is in this month, don’t you think?
It can go something like this – modify as fits your relationship(s)/family:
- find a blank journal
- determine who you want to share this ‘project’ with and label it (for example if it is for you and your spouse, label it Joe and Mary’s Gratitude Journal or if it’s for you and your children, label it: Mom, Dad, Susie & Johnny’s Gratitude Journal)
- determine how often you will write in the journal (every day, once a week, spontaneously, etc.)
- leave the journal where everyone can easily access it
- when anyone enters into the book, they date it and then write the gratitude statement
This project is intended to keep families and loved ones interconnected and feeling supported during busy times in our lives and to also keep gratitude and love in the forefront – as the most important aspects of our relationships.
Even if we verbalize to others how much we appreciate them, opening a Gratitude Journal and seeing it in writing is pretty sweet.
Let me know what you think!
Peace & Love,
