Gratitude Challenge – #CBgrateful365

“It is not happy people who are grateful, it is grateful people who are happy”

We’re all struggling to find that all elusive state of ‘happiness’. We find it on special days only to have it slip between our fingers when doubt, ungratefulness, judgement, and the silly idea of perfection creep in.

It was after reading a few chapters of Ann Voskamp’s book, One Thousand Gifts, that I dabbled with the idea of a gratitude challenge and it was after coming across this video by Hailey Bartholomew that I realised it would be photographic:

You’ll remember in my 2016 goals I mentioned I wanted to complete a 365 photo project and this isn’t the first time I have tried and failed. I don’t have kids or any pets to photograph and I’ve always felt a bit overwhelmed by choosing a subject to photograph – until this. I now have a theme – gratitude.

So, for every day for the next year, I will be snapping a photo of something I am grateful for, no matter how big or small, and I challenge you to do the same! Whether your project is photographic or in the form of a journal, it doesn’t matter! It’s all about reflecting on your day and consciously deciding to be grateful.
