Today, I am grateful for ….
This is my simple journaling practice.
My family, my partner, my work, my body, my mind, safety, health, my home, new day, my practice, people in my life.
It’s these simple things I always end up writing down, when I think about what I am the most grateful for.
Each day, I start my day with perspective of being content and grateful for all the amazing gifts I get each day.
