After reading and re-reading 'Simple Abundance' some years back, I started sporadically keeping a 'Gratitude Journal' on my nightstand.
Every night before turning off the lamp, I write 5 things I'm grateful for that day in my gratitude journal. It's like a pop-quiz at the end of the day.
find myself grateful for things as simple as waking up to the heady
smell of wet earth on a rainy day and knowing it's Saturday and I can
just lie in bed and enjoy it, yet wanting to get up anyway and be out in
the midst of it.
Nothing is as fragrant as wet earth, no memory of childhood as vibrant as walking in nature rain or shine.
