5 Things I’ve Learned From Keeping A Gratitude Journal

Almost every day, I try to write down 10 things in my journal that I am grateful for. This is what I’ve learned so far:

  1. It’s disappointing how hard it is to come up with 10 things
    Some days just feel like ordinary days or they feel like everything sucks. On those days, I find myself struggling to complete the list – but I always do.
  2. The little things are what count
    On a daily basis, big things don’t always happen. We can’t discredit the little things.
  3. Loved ones are a reoccurring theme.
    I almost always mention my loved ones in a list – they’re always worth appreciating.
  4. Gratitude doesn’t come easy.
    We are selfish beings, it’s hard to stop and remind ourselves that we wouldn’t be where we are without certain people or experiences.
  5. A journal can change your life.
    Just a little reminder everyday that every day is worth living is very key to being happy and to being successful.

Have you started a gratitude journal? It has done nothing but help me – you should give it a shot! 🙂

  1. Writing in a journal pushed me into blogging (along with a great friend’s encouragement) and it does help put everything into perspective. We all have things to be thankful for, even when times seem bleak.

  2. I’ve actually wanted to start a gratitude journal for the longest time but haven’t gotten around to it because I’m bad at keeping routines! But it looks like it has some serious benefits, so I might give it another go 🙂 It’s so important not to lose track of the important things in life. Great post! 🙂
