KNOW THYSELF: Start A Gratitude Journal

Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all the others. -- Cicero 

The Idea:  Pause to acknowledge the myriad experiences of the past three weeks. What an adventure it's been.  Kindness has a tendency to travel both ways, enriching both giver and receiver.  So for today's act of kindness, start a gratitude journal. Reflect on three gifts your life holds that you are grateful for, and write them down. Big or small, momentous or mundane, it matters not. The point is to draw your awareness to the treasures your life contains. If you want to step it up, commit to writing three things you are grateful for in your journal every day. Gratitude will always be close kin to kindness. A thankful heart can't help but spill over with compassion and caring!
