End of an Era
Today is the last day for the Live Daily Gratitude messages, both in French and English. Two years ago, after my first book 30 Days of Gratitude, The Gratitude Program That Will Change Your Life came out, I was looking for a way to keep my list engaged. I came up with the idea of sending out daily gratitude messages, every day (yes, even on the weekend), as a reminder to start your day with gratitude. The response was very positive and the list grew over that first year. After a year, the numbers seemed to have leveled off. And since January of 2015, I have been wondering about what to do next.
Gratitude Tip: Just because you have been doing something for a long time, doesn’t mean you should keep doing it. Even though you might feel like you’re disappointing people, if your passion and commitment has waned, it’s time to move on.
I am still very passionate about inspiring people to live daily gratitude and to wake up every day and give thanks. I have simply had enough of creating new daily gratitude messages every day. When I read The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin this summer, I was inspired to start my own daily blog called My Year of Gratitude, A Gratitude Project. I love being able to comment directly on current events or things that happen in my life where I can share the lessons I have learned. I have been blogging daily since the middle of July and I am committed to continue doing this until August 2016.
I’ve created an RSS feed message for all who are used to receiving the daily gratitude messages, and you will still receive a daily Gratitude Tip via the blog. I’ve also created a new option, which is a weekly update. This will be sent once a week, on Wednesdays (today is the first day) and it will be a summary of the blog posts from the previous week.
I am looking forward to your feedback about the new format and if you like it, I would love it if you would share it with others. I have a vision of a world where everyone wakes up and simply says Thank You. That would change our world.
