open invitation no. 33: gratitude

Make a gratitude list.

Gratitude is a powerful catalyst for happiness. It’s the spark that lights a fire of joy in your soul. —Amy Collette

Make a gratitude list.
Be creative.
Use photographs or doodles.
Collect some ephemera. (That’s a fancy word writers use that loosely means stuff you’d throw away if you didn’t have notebook to stick it in.)
Write captions or blurbs.
Use different pens, markers, paint or chalk.
Change the font style, size or color.

Make a gratitude list and you will find that you are happier.

*Remember, you don’t have to accept this invitation…but I do hope you will accept the invitation to write. Sharing our stories is magical.
