When I started this whole 365grateful thing last month,
I wondered what the result would be & how it would affect me.
Here's what I've found after the first 47 days:
- Sometimes it's redundant . . . I find that I'm beyond thankful for the key aspects of my life, and I could take picture after picture to try and capture the many ways I'm grateful for them !
- On the other hand, there are so many little things throughout the day that I find myself saying "Thank You" for that I can't manage to take pictures of them all ! How do you capture the pleasant interaction with a patient, or the way your husband makes you laugh so hard you cry, or the uplifting conversation, or the great dane sitting at the wheel of the car next to you in the parking lot that makes you smile & laugh . . . so many great moments that you can't capture with a camera !
- I now find myself looking for things I'm grateful for outside my normal realm . . . it's no secret that I love home & am happiest there with Jack & our furry boys, so those things are my "default" . . . I've had to push myself to find & capture things during my workday, and that's good !
- Taking and playing with pictures is just plain fun !
There's so much to be grateful for, and I can't wait to see
everything I collect over the course of the year !!!
