Focusing on gratitude is something I mention a lot around here, particularly in my Get Organized for the Holidays workshop. In the weeks leading up to the holidays, I make an extra effort to keep my mind focused on gratitude. I have learned that this foundation carries me through the hectic holiday season. It’s easy to feel stressed out and overwhelmed this time of year, but it is so much more rewarding to feel grateful and seek out the good that is already present in my life.
Jennifer stumbled upon this 30-day Gratitude Photo Challenge and we both love, love, love it! It’s another great way to commit to recognizing and recording what we’re grateful for…so we both decided to join the challenge. Check out the link for all the details, and see if this is something that you’d like to participate in, too. If so, we thought it would be fun to do this together!
If you’d like to share your gratitude photos with us on Pinterest, includethe hashtags #simplify101 and #gratitude30 so we can see your photos and what you’re grateful for each day. We’ll set up a Gratitude Pinboard and repin the photos you share on Pinterest. Jennifer and I also plan to share highlights from our daily gratitude photos on Thursdays, right here on the blog, throughout November.
Jennifer saved the 30-Day Gratitude Photo Challenge image to her phone and saved it as her background and wallpaper. This is her way of keeping the challenge top-of-mind, and since she will be using her phone to capture her images, she’s got the list exactly where she needs it. Love this!
So what do you say, are you in? Let us know in the comments…and the let the gratitude, photo taking, and pinning begin! I can’t wait to see what fills your heart with gratitude.
