Quick addendum to my New Year’s thoughts

This year I’m going to attempt to tweet one thing each day that I’m grateful for, using the hashtag #dailygratitude. (Here’s the past week’s worth.) I guess you could call this a resolution, although I didn’t intend it as such. It’s more that I’m a believer in the power of positivity — as well as the draining suckdom of negativity — so this is my way of trying to cultivate a brighter outlook and energy within myself. Also, as a writer I think it’s important to take note of life’s little details.

I will try not to repeat myself too much in these tweets — that would kind of defeat the purpose — but certain things recurringly fill me with joy and are bound to show up more than once. Things like a beautiful day, a delicious meal, good friends, the wild deer roaming my neighborhood, and even my own sweet crazy naughty pup.

    I absolutely LOVE this idea and am having fun following along with your tweets. The world would be a better place if only everyone could find something (many things) to be grateful for each day.

    I saw your tweet about Yann Tiersen and wondered about the hashtag– now I know! Fantastic idea. :)

    Shari-
    “The world would be a better place if only everyone could find something (many things) to be grateful for each day.” My thinking exactly. :)

    Julie-
    Haha, thanks! And yay for Yann Tiersen, eh?

    Another fan, I often find myself getting really happy over things that most people wouldn’t see anything special about, like the hue of green in a street sign or something :)

    Hehe, I know exactly what you mean. I wonder why stuff like that affects some of us but not others…
