I am not typically one for setting resolutions at the start of the new year. I don't want to fight the other resolute gym goers for the month of January or feel guilty about the amount of time I spend scrolling Pinterest. This year, however, I decided there was something I really wanted to be better at: being grateful. I seem to get sucked into the negative all too easily and so I decided to be very deliberate about focusing on all the love and beauty and joy around me.
These are a few of the ways I'm tackling what I've dubbed, "The Gratefulness Project."
1. I have been holding on to this gorgeous thank you card for about three years because I just loved the colors. I finally found a use for it! This picture frame allows you to float something between two pieces of glass, and voila! a custom, wipe-away thank you frame that I can write on with dry erase markers. I love leaving notes for my husband to let him know that I see and appreciate all that he does.
2. These little note cards were in the dollar bins at Target. (You know the ones I'm talking about... right in the front of the store. You're barely through the door, the baby isn't even loaded into the cart, and you're already craning your neck to see what treasures they might hold.) At that price I'm going to send more handwritten notes!
3. And finally, as cliche as it may be, I am going to try having a journal in a prominent place so I can jot down some of those little things throughout the day that tend to be forgotten by the end of the day.
