Today begins my 100 day gratitude experiment. As completely cliché as it sounds, I am compelled to do it. To test how being grateful can affect my life and those around me.
Each day for 100 days I will blog about something or someone or someplace that I am grateful for. I know gratitude can change how you see absolutely everything in life, even when your chips are down. I have experienced it. But I don’t do it enough. And, as a side benefit this will help me teach my kids more about gratitude because I am thankful that my parents taught me about it (and so it begins).
Gratitude Day 1: Today I am grateful that I have two hands and that I am able to type in the dark, since I am typing this at 4:37 a.m. Side note: I am also grateful that I can remember where the numbers 4, 3 and 7 are on the keyboard without looking – this helps ease my Alzheimer’s paranoia.
Oh, and thank you for reading this.
