365 Grateful. -Still am doing it. Every night my husband and I sit and talk about what we are grateful for. This has changed our lives forever, and my hope is more of my friends and families will do this. When you start looking at what you are grateful each and every day whether big or small, you start to become a new person and are more happy in your life than you thought.

My mom gave us "thankful journals" when we were kids and asked us to write 5 things we were thankful for everyday. Thinking of restarting it to help keep things in perspective. Keeping up with the Jones isn't so important.
a "gratitude journal/calendar". 52 pages, 1 per week, each with 7 spots to document what I am thankful for each day. I have a big year coming up (back surgery in two days) and a hip replacement 6 weeks later. I think I will want to remember the little good things for the next year!
Grateful journal...need to make this for next year - i love this idea! what a great way to choose joy everyday!
Simplicity is beautiful. Transcendentalism is about living simply and not about having the lavish and most luxurious things. Be grateful for everything you have because there are others who do not have those things that we take for granted. It's not always about the riches and lavish life, it's about being simple and using everything to your resources
