Calling All Spouses: The 30-Day Gratitude Challenge Update

Posted by: Shel 4 Comments

Those of you participating in the 30-Day Gratitude Challenge have either passed the half-way point or are very close to it, depending on when you started. (If you haven’t started yet, it’s not too late – there’s no bad time to get started!) We surpassed our goal of 100 people making a firm commitment to take it on, and the unofficial count (includes Facebook comments) is around 200. That’s a lot of appreciative spouses!

  • G-man and I are keeping up! I stick reminders on his placemat when I update mine. We agreed to share our lists with each other at the end of the 30 days, so incentive is there.

    Ironically, sometimes I choose to write in it when I’m annoyed with him; it does help shift the perspective. Best thing about this project is I’m focusing more on the things I usually take for granted. All good. 🙂

      Love it, Natine! I’m having the same experience with regard to ‘seeing’ positive things that are sometimes so routine I forget to appreciate them!

  • What a great idea, Shel.
