Gratitude Log 21 days to more abundance
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!

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.

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 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 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.

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.

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.
