Thoughtful Thursday-Gratitude Challenge

Last week, I did the 7 Days of Gratitude on Facebook. I like to think I'm grateful for pretty much everything so it wasn't difficult. I had my "3 Things" by the time I ate breakfast. What I found interesting was that I looked for more things to be grateful for throughout the day--which kind of changed my outlook of the day in general. The more I found positive things, the less the negative things mattered.

The process was kind of like an internal Facebook feed. Have you ever opened your Facebook to see nothing but a string of bad news and horrible things people have chosen to share? It's enough to make you want to sign off for the day. I know negative things happen in the world but why would you choose to share those? Why not share the good things?

If you want to take up the challenge you don't have to do it via Facebook. I figure they get their fair share of likes and shares. Take up the challenge privately and see how it affects your day-to-day life.

Here's the Challenge:

List three things you are grateful for every day for a week. That's it.

I agree! The 6 o'clock news takes care of the crap in the world, daily, so I seek out a joyful life- line so I don't drown! xoDebi

They need a good news channel--except I'm unsure if anyone would watch it! Keep smiling :)
