We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have. ~Frederick Keonig

I would like to start keeping a gratitude journal of sorts and am thinking of writing a few things that I'm grateful or happy for at least once a week. Perhaps Gratitude Tuesday?

Since I missed yesterday....here's this week.

*I am grateful for a husband that loves me unconditionally and completely.

*I am happy that the sun is shining today.

*I am happy to be here at 34 years of age, and grateful for a wonderful birthday last week.

*I do have to say I'm grateful for swear words. Oh, how do I heart me some F-bombs. ;-)

*I am grateful for wonderful friends. Individuals who are always there no matter what, never judging, be there at the drop of a hat when you need them. You ladies know who you are. Love you!

I love this idea! I've been trying to do the same on Thursdays. It really does help keep the mindset positive. I so easily slip into the negative sometimes.

Best of luck on the happy thoughts!
