Gratitude is the appreciation of what is valuable and meaningful to oneself; it is a general state of thankfulness and/or appreciation.  
“First, the prac­tice of grat­i­tude can increase hap­pi­ness lev­els by around 25%. Sec­ond, this is not hard to achieve — a few hours spent writ­ing a grat­i­tude jour­nal over 3 weeks can cre­ate an effect that lasts 6 months if not more. Third, that cul­ti­vat­ing grat­i­tude brings other health effects, such as longer and bet­ter qual­ity sleep time." ~ Psychologist Robert Emmon                             
"Develop an attitude of gratitude and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation" ~ Brian Tracy                                                                     
I implemented the practice of gratitude a little over a month ago.  What I discovered is my  outlook on life has positively increased.  I realize I unconsciously look & see the good things instead of dwelling on the not so good.  My focus is looking at the brighter side even in times that may appear to be not the best.  Have you ever heard this saying or one similar, "what you think about, you bring about?"  If I think about the things I am grateful for, it stands to reason that I will acquire more things to be grateful for.  Right?  I do believe that to be true.
Helping people bring the best of themselves is an integral part of my creative journey.  I enjoy writing in my special journal and I thought you would too so I made some extras.  Each mini journal is  3.25" x 4.5", there are 14 lines on each side of a page to write your  gratitudes, with a total of 160 pages.   What a start of a new way of life.  I have placed them in my on-line store if you want to purchase one.

 They are extremely affordable with a low shipping cost.
