My Year of Gratitude, A Daily Gratitude Project by Julie Boyer
Inspired by The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin
July 12, 2015, our six year wedding anniversary. July 13, 2015, the start of my year of gratitude. After reading The Happiness Project, I was completely inspired to take on the challenge of becoming the best version of myself. In order to become more aligned with my values daily, I have created this challenge for myself. It’s not as neat and tidy as the Happiness Project but I have decided to start regardless, as I am sure that taking action is the most important thing. Visit the blog to read the latest daily post.
Step number one:
What is most important to me? These are the core values I choose to build my life on. To me, they are of equal importance and in no specific order.
Wake up with gratitude
Treat others with kindness & respect
Listen with love and empathy
Treat myself and my body with love
Honour my family and treasure my relationships
Be present, in every moment
Allow God to work with & through me, through prayer and meditation
Shine my light on others
Give thanks for all of the little things
Spend time in nature
Develop my leadership and mentor new leaders
Engage in daily personal growth & development
Step number two:
This is to keep myself accountable to my core values and share my successes and struggles with you, in the hopes that you will keep me accountable and perhaps, chime in once in while when you relate to what I’m sharing. I will share a Gratitude Tip daily as well to help you along your journey. For those who are getting the Live Daily Gratitude emails, these will be different, you’ll start receiving the daily blog post before 10 am EST every day.
