Gratitude Log 21 days to more abundance

Updated on May 9, 2013

Mini book to feel GREAT and create an attitude of gratitude ...After 21 days of being more aware of the things you love in your life, just noticing them in the future will lift your spirits. The next step you may want to take is to voice them and lift the spirits of those around you.

Sometimes we are so busy with survival of our human self, we forget to be grateful.

Grateful for the people and things we cherish & love...

Grateful for all the gifts and talents bestowed upon us...

Grateful even for time and the chance to say "thanks"...

A little background music while you read?

They say it only takes 21 days to form a new habit. Originally written as a tiny book to give those I cared about, I offer it here to you. Gratitude I've expressed is simply for some of the things we normally take for granted to help trigger your own thoughts.

Feel free to print it out, creating your own book, or simply grab a blank journal, adding any few additional thoughts you enjoy along with your own meaningful pictures.

It might also trigger a few journal entries in your own scrapbooks. I originally thought to only write what was happening at the time the pictures were taken or who the people were, but then realized expressing that attitude of gratitude to leave as a legacy, may change family history for generations. I know if I was able to read the "attitude" of my grandparents through their own trials and tribulations of life, that would have been my greatest treasure throughout my own life!

Spending just a few moments daily to express your gratitude can truly uplift our spirits. And, gratitude breeds abundance!

DAY 1: Thank you for LIFE!

With it's myriad of experiences, opportunities, pleasures and pains - it is a joy to be here!!!

To live and to love, in and of itself, is wonderful!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

THANK YOU for my relationships!!!

Joy to the WORLD!
Joy to the WORLD!
Family is love :)
Family is love :)

Gratitude Log - Day 3

Thank you for my relationships!  My family, my friends and those I work with have all added to this day.  What a joy to share my journey with others. 

I cannot imagine what it would be like to live in a cave with no-one else around. 

   I'm so grateful I'm not alone in this world! 

   Thank you!




Gratitude Log - Day 4

 Thank you for my mind.

   It's so incredible to be able to choose my thoughts.  Thank you for life being a reflection of them - even the subconscious ones I have yet to acknowledge. 

What a pleasure to choose what I want to concentrate on and to be able to focus on that which I want returned to me.




   Thank you for the freedom of choice!

Thank you for my vessel to adventure with... and my senses to take in the glorious!

Gratitude Log - Day 5

Thank you for my body - this vessel that houses my soul. The gift of sight allowed me to see so much as I looked at the outer glories of life!  What a blessing to be able to listen to everything from the chorus of birds singing to the words of those I share life with.  I could smell and taste and touch bringing ecstacy at every turn.

Thank you for all of my senses.  They add intrigue and adventure to each and every day! 




THANK YOU for the streams & the oceans

Gratitude Log - Day 6 & 7

 Thank you for the earth and the streams and the skies!  What glory to behold!

   Thank you for the trees and the plants that nourish our world.

   Thank you for the oceans and the rains as they cleanse and refresh.

   Thank you for the balance I see in nature.




Thank you for this place I call home.  It offers not just a place to rest, but a place to express myself openly.

Thank you for sleep - a time I am free to live a thousand dreams and travel to wherever I want.

Thank you for energy and activity.  Thank you for all the moments I have to indulge in creativity and for relaxation & rejuvenation.




Home sweet home... :)

Childhood home I'm still grateful for with all the glorious memories that were created there...
Childhood home I'm still grateful for with all the glorious memories that were created there...

Oh YES! :)

Gratitude Log - Day 8 & 9 & 10

Thank you for wealth & abundance!  I have not found it in all areas of my life, but this is merely proof that there is always another step (or two or three) to take. 

None of us are perfect so I thank you for the people who've achieved success in the areas I want to learn about - they are truly inspiring! 

Thank you too for my talents and the ability to share them where needed. 

 Thank you for allowing me to be of service. 

_________   _______________  ______________

Thank you for what I value and believe!  With time tested study, my certitude and conviction envelops me like a soft warm blanket of security. 

The assurance I know is thanks to Your guidance in making me learn from both science and religion so I fall neither into the pit of materialism, nor of superstition.

_________________ _________________ _____________________

Thank you for faith, without which I would be battered around like a ship without a rudder. 

Thank you for trust so that I know there is a reason for everything!  Thank you for the truth I've come to realize as I look at myself and others with honesty.

Thank you for all of the differences so there is never a reason to be bored.

_____________ _________________ ___________________

thank you for my feelings & life lessons for a greater perspective

understanding what the state of gratitude does

Gratitude Log - Day 11 & 12 & 13

 I thank you for my feelings!  Although I know they can be as temperate as the wind, I recognize them as special and a blessing.  To share and feel the connection with the people and everything I cherish is a gift of love!

My feelings help me to recognize the next step possible in the enfoldment of my awareness and how I can correct or confirm my path! 

Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!

__________________ _________________ _________________

Thank you for all of the lessons life offers.  With each, I get to see a broader perspective of everything.  I'm learning to see the 3rd side of each situation, rising above the natural tug of polarities!  Everywhere I turn there is a chance to learn more, do more, and be more... 

Thank you for this willingness to learn so that I don't have to stay *stuck* in that which brings me pain.  Or even in that which brings me pleasure to know the difference between right and wrong.

_________________ _________________ __________________

Thank you for my ability to remember treasured times!  Thank you for my imagination and willingness to see the new and exciting! 

Thank you so much for guidance and helping me to understand
Thy will in my silence.

Thank you for this very moment - my truest gift!  When I stay completely in my truest gift, it is like no other.  Each changing moment allows me to flow and experience without simply repeating the static images that can imprison me.

Gratitude books everywhere :) :) :)

Gratitude Log - Day(s) 14, 15, 16 & 17

Thank you for this age of convenience! So many things that allow me the freedom to move beyond simple *survival*.

Thank you for the choice of foods and the farmers that made it possible. Thank you for every person and the occupation and talents they share.

Thank you for all the information at my fingertips and the ability to connect with anyone, anywhere, at any time.

_______________ ______________ ___________________________

Thank you for the animals in the world. Pets depict such clear acceptance and loyalty.

Thank you for all of the birds, bees, insects and animals in the wild. They show me what minding my own business really is, taking only what they need for survival. They are good examples.

I still wonder about the usefulness of mosquitoes, but alas, there must always be a degree of wonder.

Thank you for all the animals, and the wonder!

___________________ _____________________ _________________

Thank you for my own enthusiasm and acceptance.

Thank you for blessing me with compassion that I may walk a mile in another's shoes and understand them to be just as I am - with their own struggles, trials and tribulations.

We all have to go through the experiences and lessons, but once learned comes compassion so I can empathize with others, and know they do the same for me...

_____________________ _______________________ ________________

Thank you for the laws of the universe! To see cause & effect unfold with clarity, events connecting like invisible lines of a divine plan, brings harmony.

The simplicity of the principles of life increases my appreciation and "attitude of gratitude". Flowing with the natural rythm I am learning to have greater respect for everything - including myself.

Thank you for the clarity, simplicity, rythm, respect and harmony.

______________ _____________________ _____________________

From anonymous Internet donor - thank you for you!
From anonymous Internet donor - thank you for you!

Enjoy an attitude of gratitude! It's no secret at all :)

Gratitude Log - Day(s) 18, 19, 20 & 21

Thank you for all the beauty and joy this world offers!!!

Everywhere I turn there is something else that is glorious and serene in it's splendour!

The less rushed I become, the more time I have to "smell the roses". The more time I take, the more beauty and joy I see and feel. The more I see, the calmer I feel.

Thank you for peace...

__________________ _____________________ __________________

Thank you for hope and the promise of visions becoming reality with focus. Thank you for my patience and humility as I seek truth.

Without patience for myself, I could not forgive...
Without humility I would continue to be blinded by my ego and in constant comparison...

Without focus I could not envision and feel my dreams, with their inherent ability to be actualized.

____________________ _______________________ _______________

Thank you for all the yesterdays,
all the tomorrows
and all the today's I have to enjoy...

In this moment, I thank you for the opportunity to be of thanks. With gratitude, my blessings seem to grow. As I give, allowing room for the new, I see all returned to me abundantly.

 (see additional quotes and giving hub: Why Be Grateful )

Thank you...

__________________ ____________________ ____________________

Above all else God, thank you for you! There are so many sparks of light emanating from you. I see you everywhere, in everyone, in everything! No matter what we call you, no matter where we are on our paths, You are there to remind us that we are all connected and that you love each and every spark!

The universe is indeed "unfolding as it should".

Thank you for my part in it and the love that flows to and from me...

      hehehehe Am I confusing? What I meant was would you like me to write my gratitude log in the same format as yours? It's a beautiful one, your format. I love it!

      Don't know about a hub like mine my dear, but please let me know when you post it - I'd love to share the link on here. I too ought to consider a new one - so much more to be grateful for! Gratitude seems to grow exponentially, would you agree? Delighted to see you on here as well Michelle! :)

      Yes I can do that. That would be nice and good for my soul too. Do I also make a hub like yours? :) I've written a hub on 101 Things to be Grateful for. But I can surely write another set..this time something different and because many things have happened to me and I have grown a lot. :)

      Ah dear Michelle - delightful to see you here! With each communication you share with the world, you bring people closer and closer to this state of gratitude. Might you consider writing a similar log example with all you see and feel grateful for? I love your insight and gentle nature. Hugs dear Darlin'... shine on :)

      Thank you for you dear saddlerider.

      Yes, my truth has become the realization that every time I shed, the new and more exciting replaces it. It takes a bit to become accustomed to the new colors and feel, but once I have, I must shed again before complacency and the illusion of comfort (which could more accurately be called decay) keep me from being all I can be. I have been truly blessed to know a few people who can do this without moving or drammatically changing their environment in some fashion - but only a rare few. One gent said he kept his marriage alive by allowing his wife to be married to a whole new person every 2 years - he had 3 doctorates.

      Dis-ease has often been a gift to recognize that my situation is not in alignment with all I was meant to do > challenging me to continually stretch and let go of the old, limiting ideas. But, gratefully, I no longer need pain to push the trigger of awareness (or do I?).

      So glad you enjoyed this! Isn't the Gratidudes' dance superb?! A wonderful way to start each day indeed!

      Thank you for directing me to this invigorating hub of attitude and gratitude. It's a grand awakening for many of us when we awake finally to the world around us. You have been awakened totally and a new course is set in your life. What a journey you are on, and shedding your old skin for renewal. Life is interesting and people like yourself make it so much better. I commend your new found self and will watch you move West as you meet new people and adventures. Great UP lifting hub..peace and hugs

      KCC - so wonderful to see you!!! Thank you for being the first to comment on what I believe is our absolutely greatest gift and attitude in life. Especially with such powerfully positive advice!

      Your shining example brightens all our lives - appreciate you sharing one of your methods to exude so much warmth, light and acceptance!

      Jounaling gratitude is a great way to relieve stress, and pivot back to some better feelings. Anytime I get upset or frustrated over something I try to stop and begin writing down everything I like about the person or situation and soon I forget why I was upset.
