Attitude of Gratitude

Hello all!  I was recently inspired to give a great deal of thought to what I am grateful for and how I am showing it.  It didn't take long to realize that I really could be living a more thankful life, including not only being more grateful, but also expressing my gratitude more often.  So, to help myself develop a better "Attitude of Gratitude", I have created a challenge for myself, and I hope you will join me!


Each day in November, I will publicly express something that I am grateful for.  I personally am going to seek out blessings in places I tend to overlook.  I will post my thoughts here, on Facebook, and on Twitter.  I hope that by the end of November I will have trained myself to be a little more grateful and to remember to express that gratitude.

How about you?  Are you in?  Should you choose to join me in these daily doses of blessing-counting, I have a $25.00 gift certificate to Precocious Paper that may be yours!  Leave a comment on this post with a link to where you are posting your thoughts.  In the beginning of December I will randomly draw a name.  If you post about this challenge on your blog and send me a link, I will give you an extra entry.  Feel free to turn the above graphic into a button for your blogs. 

Sound like fun?  I can't wait!  Let me start early - THANK YOU to all of my wonderful blog readers, customers, and friends for the blessings you are in my life :).

Have a wonderful day! Tessa

  1. This is a fantastic idea. I've been thinking about gratitude as well lately...both for myself, and how to teach it to my girls.

  16. Love this idea! I had done a similar project a couple of years ago with "daily blessings" on an ATC card. It is so fun to back and see the little things in life that God has allowed me to enjoy. :)
    Here is a link to my archives:

    I'm thankful that so many people see the importance of being thankful. :)

  17. This is such a fab idea! I've written my gratitude statments from the 1st-3rd on my blog until I find a more permanent place-can't decide between a junque journal or a mini! I posted the supercute badge you made on my blog and of course mentioned it there too! Again, thanks for hosting this; so neat to read everyone's statements each day. Please stop by my blog when you get a chance.
