Look at this! I took the first step.

IMG_3186.JPGThat strip of paper in the glass bubbler records my first offering of gratitude.  I love the aesthetic.  I am going to make the strips of paper different colors.  That will be pretty!

The strips have a place for the date, person, and thing that person is grateful for on that date.

So, if you come to my house, you will be invited to participate.

I think after they are read on New Year’s Eve, I will string them up somewhere.

Then, they will live on as positive thoughts in the air, each string representing a year of gratitude.

This is some pretty hippie shit, but I’m into it.

You know what?  Even thinking about gratitude has started the healing process.

I know I will bump into poisonous, painful feelings in the future.  They’re a natural thing.  But they’re not meant to be ruminate upon.

If I’m going to ruminate, it’s going to be on things I’m grateful for.

    1. If you mean me….I am not sure. I kind of see the blog as thanking the universe. However, I am going to let the idea roll around in my brain (untethered) and see what I think early next week.
