I’m doing this thing where I try to create a writing prompt for my mom to do everyday, something to get her to write more often. The one that came to me the other day was to write a gratitude statement. I liked the idea so much that I decided to do it as well. (It came to me in the twilight sleep stage.) So here’s the prompt.
Write down 7 things you are CURRENTLY grateful for. Then write down 3 things you WILL BE grateful for. Review the list. Write down a gratitude statement using all 10 things. Remember to write the WILL BE items as if they are happening NOW.
Here’s my gratitude statement.
7 Things I’m Grateful For
- my car
- my family
- my friends
- food and place to stay
- ability to love
3 Things I Will Be Grateful For
- florida living
I am grateful for my health and my ability to love and be loved by my spouse, friends, and family. I am thankful for the car I drive, the food I eat, and the roof over my head. I’m grateful that my home is in Florida and my environment is peaceful. I enjoy this especially when I come home from my travels with my friends, spouse, and/or family.
