Can you believe the year is 2016? What happened to 2015? Didn’t I just post something about my focus for the year?
Apparently, it’s been twelve months or 365 days since that amazing post.
Remember how my focus for 2014 was “be the change you want to see”?
Then I decided to get an attitude adjustment in 2015 with a little “accentuate the positive” encouragement.
As the year sped toward completion, my creative brain began plotting how to make my campaign epic in the new year.
Enter Thirty Days of Thanksgiving.
You saw the posts on Facebook, right? What a great way to introduce the American holiday held the fourth Thursday of November.
You know, Thanksgiving Day. It’s my favorite of all the holidays (and it’s not because of the cornbread stuffing).
All this thankfulness got me thinking. Who can list all they are thankful for in a single month? It would take a year or more to even scratch the surface of how blessed we are.
A year of thanksgiving, then? My mind churned the title through its many layers of imagination and editing.
In the end, I settled on 365 Days of Gratitude.
Such a nice ring to that, don’t you think?
Which means, of course, that there are 366 days in 2016. You know because it’s a Leap Year.
Why can’t the Earth make it’s way around the sun in 365 days? Why does it have to take 365 days and six hours? That means we have to add an extra day every four years. It messes up the perfect synchronicity that is February and March.
Wait a minute!
I’m practicing the attitude of gratitude in 2016. Let’s try a new vein of thought here. I’m thankful for February 29.
However, I’m not changing my Twitter hashtag. I want my posts to reappear in years to come when anyone happens to search #365DaysofGratitude.
Maybe this thing will go viral. People everywhere will express their gratitude for the everyday things we take for granted. You know like waking up. Having air to breathe. Walking to the sink to turn on water for a refreshing drink (not everyone in the world can do this, you know).
What would the world be like if every single person
displayed an attitude of gratitude?
