New Blog Project - a weekly Gratitude Day

I have come across an exercise entitled '100 Gratitudes' - this exercise allows you to reflect on your life by having you list 100 things you are grateful for. In need of a regular blog project so Healing Scribe does not continue to go untouched as she has done in previous weeks, I've set myself the challenge of my own Gratitude List. I've decided to compose this list over the course of the next six months and post it here once a week.

So here begins my very own '100 Gratitudes' List - Today is Gratitude Day!

I am grateful for...

1. Waterfalls - the cascading water has a calming effect on me. This photo was taken in 2007 during a holiday in Australia with my partner.

2. Ben and Jerry's ice cream - there is nothing better than curling up on the couch with a tub of B&J's. Not so healthy, but oh so yummy!

3. 'The Lovely Bones' by Alice Sebold - the novel that inspired me to write.

4. 'The Time Traveller's Wife' by Audrey Niffenegger - the novel that inspired me to write about love.


  1. What an awesome idea! I might have to have a go at that myself...

    Anthony Robbins suggests keeping a little book of gratitude and every night before you go to sleep you write down three things you're grateful for from the day just gone. I find I do it in fit and starts, but it's interesting to read back on!
