One of the things I've been doing lately is writing in my gratitude journal. Yes, every entry begins with I am thankful for and then whatever thing, however small or silly, I have to be thankful for that day. Sometimes there's two or three things. One day I was thankful for hot chocolate. Another day is was Divine Comfort. You get the picture. Just the simple act of writing down the things I am grateful for has given me a new appreciation of life's small blessings. I know I am guilty of spending way too much time worrying about the big picture and that gets in the way of enjoying the little things. I intend to spend more of this new year appreciating the good things in my life and less time thinking about the things I can't change.
