Rekindle Our Hearts:30 Days of Gratitude

"There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle."  -Albert Einstein


Spring is COOOMMMMIINNNG!!!! And boy or boy am I READY!! While we didn't have a ton of snow this year (not like those of you from the East Coast...Bless you all for enduring that) but here in Northwest Missouri it can be bitterly cold...the kind of cold that seeps into your bones and takes a LONG time to warm up. Add lack of sunshine and gale force winds and you can see why Spring can't come soon enough!!

Soooo....I am in the mood to CELEBRATE by pouring out my Heart daily in a gratitude journal. It's been awhile since I did that and I think Spring is the perfect time to start this daily habit again. I first heard about the practice of daily gratitude journal from this book...





 The author Sarah Ban Breathnach appeared on the Oprah Show back in the 1990's and the minute I heard about her and her book and her idea of gratitude I KNEW it was something I had to read (and try)! If you don't have your copy...I encourage you to purchase this...money well spent!!

I have kept my own Gratitude Journal off and on for years...sometimes in an actual journal, other times jotted on a piece of scrap paper. Regardless of where I write down those 5 things...each and every time I do my Heart swells with peace, love and gratefulness for all the ABUNDANCE in my life!



Beginning Wednesday April 1st, join me for 30 Days of Gratitude. Each day I will post inspiring quotes, links, images and more in my Facebook group Mind.Body. Soul. Your job is to create 30 mini cards...you can use index cards, Project Life cards (the blank ones), ATC cards...anything small! Each day we will write down at least 5 things we are grateful for on our cards. By the end of April we will have stack of 150 things we are grateful for!! Hellloooo Happiness!!:)




I  hope you will join me for this journey as we rekindle our Hearts.

  1. I like this idea, Leslie! I think it would be fun to create an art card (maybe, as you suggest, an ATC) each day that visually expresses something I am thankful for. I might play along!

  3. I LOVE this idea: I'm SO lazy and slow on finishing projects so I doubt I could keep up with every day, but I could try to do one a week, is that ok? Do what we can???
