Welcome to our Newlywed Gratitude Blog!
We've timed it to start with the World Gratitude Gathering, which begins on Oct 1.
Can you think of a better way to power up your attitude of gratitude than to join a bunch of like minded folks for 42 days and nights of gratitude?
If you are ready to change your life and help change the world, consider joining them here: http://www.worldgratitude.com/.
But anyway, that was just an excuse to get started!
Greg and I have been practicing gratitude since just about the beginning of our dating relationship.
In fact, it began with a love note he left me after the first night I slept over his house. And that one note turned into daily notes, 5 days a week, ever since we began living together over 3 years ago.
I'll be honest, I may be the psychologist, but Greg has taught me a thing or two about appreciation. Naturally skilled- he doesn't even have to think about it!
The most important thing that I have learned from him?
NOTHING is too small to express gratitude for. NOTHING.
So why this blog now?
We got married a few months ago, in January 2008. Then moved into our dream house, with our 3 horses in July. Now I am getting ready to launch a major project. What a year! But, with all of the crazy hecticness- we fell out of our daily love note practice!!
And that was a 3 year-old habit!
What's a better way to get back into a habit than to blog about it!
After all, in our wedding vows, we promised we'd keep it up. And everyone at our wedding laughed, saying, "How charming, but it wasn't possible." We don't want them to be right, do we!?
So, here we are.
Mostly, it's a gift to each other.
A commitment to keeping love our first priority.
But, it's also a gift to the universe. Because every happy, gracious thought that any of us puts into the world, improves it.
We've decided to "Be the Change You Want to See."
So, we hope that you too, will add your happy thoughts to the universe. And together, we'll all improve the planet, one grateful thought at a time!
Now, that's something to be grateful about!
