Daily gratitudes

Lauren and I are taking a 5 week meditation class at Cambridge Insight Meditation Center. It’s a weekly 2 hour class and I’m really enjoying it.

One thing in particular I thought I would share from our class is the idea of daily gratitudes. The exercise we are doing is to write down three things you are grateful for each day and share them with someone. In my case I’m sharing them with my wife.

It’s become a daily thing for the last three weeks and it’s absolutely wonderful. Some days I’m grateful for the simplest moments. Other days something much more memorable. But it doesn’t matter. It’s the practice of taking a few minutes each day to take the time of thinking about it, writing it down and sharing it with someone.

Give it a try.
