PLAYING WITH THE POWER OF GRATITUDE
Find Something For Which to Be Grateful. Take a Picture of It. Repeat 365 times.
Well. The final week has come and gone. I managed to find things for which to be grateful ... every day ... for a year. I wasn't a 100% confident I would make it to the end; I'm glad I did.
It wasn't actually ever hard to find things to be grateful for. What was more challenging was finding something that also would make an interesting photo. I didn't always meet my expectations there. But I do have some favourites. I look forward to an upcoming post detailing some of the discoveries during this project. But the biggest take-away, of course, is to be reminded just how lucky I am.
So, I'm glad I did it but am I going to miss my grateful project? Not really. I'm sure there will be times when I can't help myself but document some of those simple and amazing moments that show up here and there. So I'm going to reinstate my "Makes Me Happy" photos that I used to post here on random Wednesdays (like magnetic poetry, a boy and his inchworm, dutch oven tower, fall hike at lighthouse park) — of the same vein, really, but without the everyday pressure.
Anyway, here are the photos of my final week, oh, and one vine video:
DAY 358: April 29, 2013 | Happy little clouds. #365grateful
DAY 359: April 30, 2013 | From sweet and cuddly to totally psychotic in the blink of an eye. Love her. #365grateful
DAY 360: May 1, 2013 | I sure am glad I learned how to tie a tie somewhere along in life because Hubs is out of town and we couldn't find the clip-on! #365grateful
DAY 361: May 2, 2013 | Hubs left me treat. #365grateful
DAY 362: May 3, 2013 | What!? Just got a delivery in the mail from our counter top people. A matching cheese board! #365grateful
DAY 363: May 4, 2013 | A little pre-dinner serenade, Slippery Fish en Español. #365grateful #vine (note, doesn't look like I can post vine video here, so we'll have to use our imagination)
DAY 364: May 5, 2013 | Gorgeous day for a family bike and Potato's first ride! First of many! #365grateful
DAY 365: May 6, 2013 | It was a year ago I started my #365grateful project with a post on getting my learners (again!). Fitting, then, that my last post is about taking driving lessons (finally!)
