As I wrap up my 7 Days of Gratitude challenge, I’m grateful for one more thing; thanks Paiboon, for your ‘My Treasure Box‘ post, explaining just what I wanted to accomplish by doing this!
I came across the idea of magical moments some time ago. We all have magical moments in our lives, that’s undoubtable. The question is really, do we notice them, and how much of them do we remember? Paiboon makes a great point for capturing down our magical moments, so I won’t repeat myself here, and he does have the the warmest smile I’ve ever seen from anybody so there must be something to it
If you haven’t read My Treasure Box yet, go devour it now before you come back and continue reading!
It’s been documented that people who lead healthier and longer lives are, surprise suprise, more positive in their attitudes. And one of the keys to their positivity is that they tend to remember more of the good times they’ve had than the bad.
Looking back on these last 7 days, it’s been a real trip. I can’t imagine, for example, that it was just 5 days ago on Day 3 that I was involved in a traffic accident, restraining someone to wait for the ambulance! But the act of capturing it down has helped me to remember, and given a place for me to review it.
And the most obvious thing about the last 7 days that’s been all the same is; the things I’ve been most grateful more weren’t things; it was people. The people I love and who love me make my life rich beyond any of the material things that I’m have (which I’m grateful for too), and I am so so grateful to have them in my life.
The challenge has been a good experience for me. For those who’ve been following me through these last 7 days, what’s been your experience? What have you learnt and gained from these last 7 Days of Gratitude?
