Week #115 – Six Weeks to Happyness: Count Your Blessings! (30 Days of Gratitude Starts Now!)
Greetings Happyness Tribe — and Happy Holidays!
After what seems like months of division and disagreement in social media — it was such a joy yesterday to see people counting their blessings and expressing thanks for all the things going right in their lives!
Many people have even lamented that they missed the usual barrage of “Thankfulness” posts that flood newsfeeds in November.
I’ve been guilty of getting caught up in negativity, too — believe me. Everyone who knows me knows that my heart is still very much at home at the Jersey Shore. I’ve been very easily focused on the things I miss, the things I left behind, the things that will never be quite the same again.
And as the holidays approached, it seemed to be getting worse.
And then, I had an idea. I wanted to end the year strong. On the things that were going well. On the things I was thankful for (because, if I’m honest with myself, there are many!).
In short, I wanted to give myself the gift of gratitude.
So I thought, why not make a game of it? Today is November 25th — exactly 30 days to the first night of Hanukkah AND Christmas Eve!
And then I thought, why not Spread Happyness — and share it with everyone?!
So here it is! A very simple, one-page calendar that you (or your kids) can hang on your wall or refrigerator and fill in each day — and a challenge to Count Your Blessings for 30 days straight! Think you can do it?!
