A Year of Gratitude


Today marks the one year celebration and the completion of my self set 365 days of gratitude challenge via instagram posts.

There is some special kind of magic in storytelling  through the combination of the written word and photography. Perhaps that was what drew me to instagram in the first place. Story sharing. Picture magic.

Every evening before I went to bed I would reflect on my day and post the thing that I was intensely grateful for. Sometimes I couldn’t wait until the end of the day. I learned to recognize a gratitude post blossoming in the moment I met it.

Often I would have more that one post to share. Suddenly I saw great blessings everywhere. Magical moments and incredible serendipities. Oft used phrases included, “I know the best people!” Or, “I am so blessed!” Or, “Life is so good.”

What a beautiful gift it has turned out to be. It is so true that Gratitude brings True Joy and Great Happiness!

A few lessons learned along the way:

  • It is a truth that what we put our focus on we create more of.
  • Focusing on what is wonderful in our lives creates more wonder.
  • If you want to transform your life and elevate your vibration in the world, gratitude is a wonderful place to begin.


Here’s to a year of MAGIC, True Joy, and Great Happiness!

I will definitely keep posting.




THAT’S 365+ moments of amazing and many more to come.
