Making Ordinary Time a Little Less Ordinary Pt 11

Gratitude Journal 

     Each year can go by very fast and we can loose track of things that are important. Through out the year we can get distracted by a big project, or by sorrowful news. It begins to seem like the year has slipped right past us, and we are wondering where the year just went. 

    Today, I would like to suggest to keep track of the delightful things in life with something called a Gratitude Journal. What you do is that every time something good happens to you, take out your book and write it down. The challenge is to try to do this everyday because, even on the toughest of days their is always something to be grateful for, even if it was a simple smile from someone. At the end of year, on December 31st, flip through your journal and recall all of the good things that happened to you throughout the year- relive the good moments of the year.

     This can also be done with a jar. Place a jar, either on a prayer table ( or somewhere else significant) and have strips of paper next to it. So every time something good happens you can easily write it down and add it to the jar. Fold each piece of paper has your drop it in. Then at the end of the year you can open the jar and you will be picking through different times of the year and remember these great events. 

    I have done this for the past couple of years, and trust me, you feel very happy  on December 31st. It brings you back into the present, and it helps you to have a conscientious mind of gratitude. 

    To make this Ordinary Time a little less Ordinary I suggest you make yourself a Gratitude Journal or jar.  Refresh yourself with the beautiful and joyful events in your life through the past year. It isn't to late to start one now! Start today with a journal or jar! Defiantly do it again on January 1st 2015 :D
