2013 Gratitude List

There’s something good in everyday

Over the last year or so gratitude has been an important part of my life. I spend time each day being grateful. I think it is important to take note of things in your day to day life that you are grateful for. I have a gratitude notebook that I keep next to my bedside and most days I note down something that I am grateful for. Gratitude equals  happiness.

Mid Week Gratitude

Thanks to technology I am wrote some of this weeks gratitude post from a car-park while I was waiting for hubby to pick me up. So I guess my first thing I am grateful for is technology. I love being able to share photos here and write notes to myself using this app ColorNote Notepad Notes To Do


Here is my gratitude list for this week – 

  • Technology, especially my phone. Never wanted a smart phone, now I could not live without it.
  • FatMumSlim for sharing next months Photo-a-day list, (February already)!!! 
  • My walk to work, being able to gaze at the sky; cloud watch and find rainbows.
  • Dark chocolate and detox tea, what a great combination.
  • My new favourite thing – Coconut Oil. (Hair is looking less frizzy).
