I need to stop complaining.

I feel like I complain a lot and don't really appreciate what I have.

So today, I'm linking up with my friend, Rachel, from Life in the Moment. Every week until the end of the year she's hosting "Gratitude Project 2012."

Yeah, I know, another link up. I said I wouldn't do as many of these. But it's good to try and be grateful for things in life, to remember them, and give your friends some linkage along the way.

This week I am grateful for...

Friends who will randomly go with you to concerts for bands you have never heard of before.

Creative people who push the limits and explore brand new ways of doing things, and without knowing it, challenge me to be more creative and put more thought into my own work.

Even when it seems like you're at your end, God provides.

Parents who are patient when you're stranded on the side of the highway for 2+ hours with their children.

My mom who puts up with my crap all of the time.

People who are understanding, even if you feel as though you are failing all of the time.

Sweaters and scarves.


What are you grateful for this week?

Also, I need some blog advice. In case you missed it, check out my post from yesterday and share with me your ideas.

And - three days in a row with something posted. Not bad for someone who is lacking inspiration, huh?


  1. How do I get in on this Gratitude Project? I think I complain too much too!

    1. Just head on over to Rachel's blog. I think she's doing it every Friday - so all you have to do is link up!

  2. I watched a TED talk a while back that talked about writing a list of five things you're grateful for at the end of the day as a means of encouraging more positive thinking. The idea is that if you know you have this end-of-day assignment, you spend your day looking for reasons to be grateful.

    1. It's pretty useful. I know I take a ton of things for granted and just need to realize that I have a lot of great things going in my life.


Share with me your thoughts! They make me smile.
