Good Monday morning, lovely ladies.
As November Blogger of the Month, I’ll be sharing thoughts on this month’s theme – Gratitude – each Monday.
Thanksgiving is by far my favorite holiday, and I start thinking about it the moment Halloween is over. For the past few days, I’ve been pondering specific ways that I can incorporate some much-needed thankfulness into my life.
I hope this list will inspire you to do the same:
5 Ways to Be More Thankful this November
1. For the writer:
Consider participating in the weekly Ten Things of Thankful link up. If you’d like to see how it’s done, read Melissa’s awesomely-titled post from this weekend: Ten Things of Thankful and Wondering Again Why There’s (Always) Vomit.
2. For the photographer/Instagrammer:
Positively Present is hosting a 30 Day Gratitude Photo Challenge. This is a great option for Instagram fans. Tag your photo and follow other participants with the hashtag #Gratitude30.
3. For the Facebook aficionado:
Head over to the 30 Days of Gratitude page where you’ll find a daily prompt to get you thinking about what you’re thankful for. You can reply in comments on the page, or post to your own wall (or do both.)
4. For the Pinner:
Consider starting a board dedicated to celebrating gratitude. If you search for “gratitude challenge” you’ll find plenty of examples.
5. For the DIY-er:
Crystal Paine talks a lot about gratitude on her site. Back in September, she featured a post from Victoria of Snail Pace Transformations describing how to make your own gratitude journal for $1. Be sure to read Crystal’s thoughts on keeping a gratitude journal too.
What are you doing to practice gratitude this month?
