I started out my Gratitude week with such enthusiasm! My plan was to get everyone all psyched up and grateful for all the wonderful things in their lives. I came up with a couple of gratitude games that I was hoping might be inspirational, and for a couple of you I think that may have been the case but I feel like I may have let you all down in terms of really good content! I admit to being slightly distracted because of the launch of my other blog, Everyday Mommy, and I haven't quite figured out the balance of doing both at the moment. I do want you all to know that I still intend Everyday Bliss to be my primary blog focus.
Initially I intended to end my Gratitude Week with the announcement of my Gratitude Pig Giveaway but I have decided to keep that contest going. Additional grateful entries will continue to be accepted (so do stop on by and share your thankful gratefulness today!) Look for an announcement about how I am going to conclude things during Moxie week (I will also update in the original contest link.) Additionally, I will be keeping the Gratitude Hop going until the end of the month so please don't be shy about linking up all your grateful links!
This week I ran across a couple of terrific new to me blogs that really speak the language of gratitude. I have decided to share them with you so you can be inspired too!
- The Living Gratitude blog is a fabulous site entirely devoted to The Attitude of Gratitude a movement "designed to encourage people to develop the daily habit of expressing gratitude for all that is right in our world."
- Jane Anne over at Gravity of Motion is in the middle of her own Gratitude Experiment and has been logging all sorts of grateful musings in her weekly meme Thursday Thank Tank. I think you would enjoy a visit of all of these grateful goings on.
- Akemi over at Real Life Spirituality intermittently posts an online Gratitude Journal. I really connected with what she wrote about in March about her Gratitude for her Earthly Life. I feel many of the same things and she articulated it so nicely!
All in all I am giving myself a 7 out of 10 for my overall score this week. I am also giving myself 4 bliss boosts, particularly because continuing the gratitude games will keep me thinking grateful thoughts!
How about you? Are you doing anything about keeping An Attitude of Gratitude alive an well in your life?
