This week I have been doing 7 days of gratitude visits, one thing per day I am grateful for. My list was fairly standard and consisted of the following;
Day 1 – My car and the ability to drive.
Day 2 – My family.
Day 3 – My children.
Day 4 – The roof over our heads.
Day 5 – My best friend
Day 6 – SLEEP!
Day 7 – Food and clean drinking water on tap.
I didn’t know what I would write each day beforehand and hadn’t planned anything so these were all natural and genuine gratitude visits.
I feel that I have learned about myself from looking at my list. Material things seem not to make much of an appearance other than my car on day 1, but more for ferrying people around reasons than the actual car. My list focuses on people. The people I am grateful to have in my life are what make up the majority of my gratitude visits and I feel like that’s telling of the sort of person I am.
I’m not saying that everyone can tell what kind of person you are from a list of 7 things like this but this is how I’ve read my own.
I feel more positive on the whole, and think I will continue to do the gratitude visits each day in my own journal as it has given me 10 minutes at the end of each day to reflect, if nothing else.
What do you feel your list says and what have you taken from the week?
Let me know in the comments.
