Journaling Prompt #26 – Give Thanks To Yourself

November 19th, 2008 by Avital

30 Days of Gratitude- Day 8 [30 Days of Gratitude- Day 8 by aussiegall, on Flickr]

Showing your gratitude is an important habit to incorporate in our day-to-day lives, rather than once per annum. Having said that, it is also very important to have a yearly reminder to stop our daily race and be thankful for everything that we have, taking nothing in our life for granted.

However, this year I suggest to go about it a bit differently. Use this year’s reminder to give thanks to yourself. You are often forgotten in the process of expressing your gratitude, let us fix that this year.

Have no doubt, I am not underestimating any higher-power you believe in or any of your friends and family or any of your heroes, that have helped you come thus far. On the contrary, you should never stop appreciating and being grateful to them. I am a great supporter of showing your gratitude, perhaps with a handwritten letter of appreciation or any other way that suits you.

Still, showing gratitude to the ones you believe in is easy and mainstream. Giving thanks to yourself – is not.

Therefore for this week’s journaling prompt I urge you to take a few moments and jot down everything in yourself that you are thankful for.

    Hi Avital !

    I know I am a little late with this one – I seem to be chasing the calendar in so many ways right now…Oh well ! “I am grateful for my ability to do thing at my own pace when the world goes too fast for me”!;-)

    Giving thanks to yourself was kind of the theme around me last week ! It was a great theme and I think I will continue it for a while ! I think I need more of that in my life. Rather than waiting for others to acknowledge or praise or celebrate me, I really have to work on making it more of a practice to do that for mysef ! It feels good !

    I did a little journal page about giving thanks to me and posted about it here : http://queen-of-arts.blogspot.com/2008/11/i-am-grateful-for-me.html

    I hope I catch up with you and your wonderful inspirational prompts again soon !
    Cheers and happy Monday !
