The 2018 Gratitude Jar Challenge

January 2nd, the day I open my 2017 gratitude jar. If anyone wants to begin this practice today, a New Year is always a great place to start! Writing it down-the physical record is important—don’t just do this exercise in your head.

The goal of the exercise is to remember a good event, experience, person, or thing in your life—then enjoy the good emotions that come with it. Are you in …

Read the headlines on any given day and it’s easy to become jaded and discouraged about tragic events happening all around the world.

It depends on how long I hold it. If I hold it for a minute, it’s not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I’ll have an ache in my arm. If …

“We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.” ― Edith Lovejoy Pierce Well my dear friends, a NEW year has arrived!
