One week in, I have never been more grateful in my life.
I have discovered that as I focus on the good (despite the *bad* moments) gratitude is the ladder that helps me climb out of a hole.
Not a cure-all, sure; there's no magic bullet - I am, after all still ME. Wherever I go, there I am.
But in the moments that would usually trigger a spiral downwards, gratitude has been the life preserver, flung out to stop me being sucked into the negative vortex.
This is a Very Good Thing.
Grateful for a leakproof house on this rainiest of days. I mean, what is nicer than to be inside warm and cosy with the rain drumming on the roof? Grateful for being warm and dry on a cold wet day.
Grateful I started this journey. Grateful that a week on I haven't missed a day. I am sticking at something. Go me.
If you want to join in with The Grateful Project, grab a notebook and pen and just start writing down something every morning that you are grateful for. To connect with others who are doing it you can use #thegratefulproject on Twitter and Instagram, or leave me a comment here on my blog. I've also started a Grateful Project Board on Pinterest.
See you all tomorrow.
