I would like to invite you on a journey with me. Dad said this:
"Gratitude is the healthiest of all human emotions. The more you express gratitude for what you have, the more likely you will have even more to express gratitude for."
Research done by Phillippa Lally and released in the European Journal of Social Psychology indicates that it takes 66 days to form a new habit.
I don’t know about you, but if gratitude is the healthiest of all human emotions, and the more grateful we are, the more we will have to be grateful for, then I say let’s make gratitude a habit!
Here is the gratitude journey we can do together. Each day write down three things you are grateful for on a list. You can keep a journal, put it in your Smartphone, send yourself an email, whatever you like.
Each day the three things you write down must be different than the previous days’ – you can write something on the list only one time!
Each day you review your list and add three new things. We will do this together for 66 days – the time it takes to make gratitude a habit. At the end of 66 days we will have 198 things we are grateful for, and our minds will constantly be looking for new things to be grateful for.
Here are my first three:
- Two chairs – one for me and one for God. This is the time I spend alone with God every morning.
- Legacy – I am so grateful for the legacy that was given to me by Mom and Dad.
- Family – my heart swells with gratitude when I think of my wife and daughter, parents, sisters, and my adopted brothers and sisters who I meet everyday.
Each day I send a Zignificance email I will add the next three in the P.S. of the email.
Join me! Make your own list. Like me, you have nothing to lose and amazing things to gain.
One of the things I am grateful for is the example Mom and Dad set in their marriage – our family continues to be blessed by their commitment to each other.
