I have been reading so much about gratitude and its power in good and bad times, I have decided to try and integrate a gratitude practice at the end of the day. After turning off the lights, I try to think of at least one thing that has happened through the day and for which I am grateful. After the unoriginal thank you for having good health, live in an apartment I like and have a loving relationship with a great man, I thought I would have a hard time coming up with new things. But it has been quite the opposite. I come up with them pretty easily. They bring me peace that no matter how little I have achieved in that day, I have at least made one thing worth mentioning to myself. It's only been a few days, but it already makes me look at my day differently. I now leave my house in the morning thinking about how the day will bring something special for which I will be grateful tonight.
