Month of Gratitude

I know that one of my weaknesses is I sometimes get bogged down on focusing on the small negative rather than enjoying the much larger positives that I have in my life. Usually this happens when I'm feeling hurt/angry/sad/rejected. Fortunately,  I'm usually pretty quick to pull myself out of it and return to my half-glass full way of thinking.

My yoga practice has been a big help in keeping my perspective in check and reminding the power of both negative and positive thinking.

To help instill a sense of gratitude even deeper inside myself, I'll be joining hundreds of others, some yogis some not, in A Month of Gratitude.  Each day I'll list five things I'm grateful for. I'm not setting any rules for myself, somedays there might be repeats and somedays I might have to really stretch to find something to be grateful for.

To hold myself accountable, I've created a Month of Gratitude Page here on my blog. Each days gratitude list will be posted there.

What are you grateful for today?
