You Ever Thought About a Gratitude Journal?

If you know anything about me, you will know that I will do practically anything that Oprah says, because I think that she is just that awesome.  But I really want to do this, because I have had my own share of challenges with experiencing gratitude.  I invite you to join me.  Please take a moment to review her message about the importance of a Gratitude Journal with me.



Please share your thoughts and reactions to this amazing addition to your everyday life.  We look forward to hearing from you!

Gratitude, Happiness


  1. Bea

    I too love everything related to Oprah and believe gratitude is a key to happiness. May years ago I started a gratitude journal but didn’t stick with it. I’d love to do this again but need to find an easy way to incorporate this into my schedule.

      Hi Bea!

      Thank you for your comment. Yes, incorporating this into a busy schedule is challenging. What I do, is take ten minutes before I go to bed, to jot down 5 things about my day. It can be as little as giving a stranger a ride or being in the position to loan money or as large as being thankful for my marriage and home. I find that I can really appreciate more of the things that I don’t have by appreciating what I do :)

  2. Everyone loves Oprah! :) Nice video and I definitely agree there is Power in the word. Proverbs 18:21 – Death and life [are] in the power of the tongue

      Thank you Kenton. Yet and still, it so much easier to engage in a conversation about all the things that you do not have and things that are wrong with life, that we seldom think of the things that are right with it. This is why practicing gratitude is sooooooooooooo important! The power of words (spoken and written) has never been so strong…

  3. Hi,

    I am doing a gratitude journal and loving it. Great post!
