Gratitudes: Week One

I've heard that you can improve your mood just by being grateful. Supposedly whole studies have been done showing that if you just sit and think for a bit about things in your life you're happy about, you can improve your whole outlook. I've been considering trying this since the Ologies podcast had a little mini-sode about it for Thanksgiving, and have decided to give it a try.

I've successfully come up with almost a whole week of gratitude, though it's short because I started January 3rd, and then was sick January 7th.

3 January

I couldn't think of much on day one.

4 January

I got a call from the vet saying that Lump's blood tests came back pretty well, so yay!

5 January

I considered beating myself up, but then went, "nah."

6 January

I got to do a 45 minute True/False test as part of a research project around the MMPI test and then I got $50 for it! Woo hoo!

Hopefully all this typing into facebook and screen-shotting helps me feel better about life, and keeps my mood up. We shall see!
