My Mom gave me a Gratitude journal as a going away gift. What a perfect gift for a challenging, rewarding journey ahead. We must always remember to count our blessings. For the past year, I have recorded my own gratitude into a 40-page compilation. I’d like to share my favorites.
I am thankful for:

Thank you Great Spirit, Angels watching over me <3
4/16 Time and space to reflect; like a vision quest

I’m thankful for every day. For this opportunity to do Peace Corps and live abroad for two years. To grow and let go. I’m grateful for my community I live in for loving me for who I am. I’m thankful for the lessons of learning to embrace my complete self, flows ‘ all, and embrace failure at work. Giving up perfectionism. I’m blessed to learn and see so much at such a young age. Lastly, I’m Thankful for you for reading, and believing in me. You can buy your own Gratitude Journal at www.graceofgratitude.com.
What a delightful and beautiful testimonial! Thank you so much to the person who sent it to me.
