Every year, I host the Gratitude Photo Challenge on Instagram in November, and it’s such a fantastic experience every time because it helps me (and anyone else who participates!) to shift my focus to gratitude. This year (for the first time ever!) I’ve consistently maintained a gratitude journal. I know that’s not for everyone (and might even sound a teeeeny bit cliche), but it honestly helps me stay more positive, present, and self-loving.
In particular, on bad days, I’ve found that the few moments I spend writing in my gratitude journal instantly give me a new perspective and perk me up. (I’ve been using my Every Day Matters diary as a gratitude journal, and it works sooo well as one. The 2018 version just went on sale in desk and pocket sizes — more to come on those soon, but here’s a peek on Instagram!)
Since I know gratitude journaling isn’t for everyone, I decided to make a little printable, The ABCs of Gratitude, that might give people who aren’t into journaling a quick way to focus on gratitude. I’ve also made my version (shown above) as a downloadable PDF, too, so if you’re on board with my list you can print it out and hang it up as a reminder to focus on gratitude!

If you download and fill it out, I’d love to see it! Share it with me on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, or Pinterest!
(Side note: This little project started just as me playing around with different lettering styles on my iPad, and somehow turned into this! So I hope that it not only inspires you to focus on gratitude, but also to be open to letting things just come about, even if they go in a completely different direction than what you were anticipating! If you’re interested in lettering, check out my iPad Lettering with Dani videos!)
Love checking out your blog, Thanks for the share, definitely a great way to help keep a positive mindset. Will be sure to use this technique.
