My April round up of things which have brought me joy.
It might seem a bit hackneyed but there’s a reason that making a regular list of things you’re grateful for is a tried and true practice. Just the fact of writing things down that you can see in black and white pulls the happy moments of your life sharply into focus.
Which means you’ll likely attract more of them!
It’s also nice to have a record of the highlights of the month (or week, or whatever). Especially if you’re like me and obsessed with making the most of your time, and not wanting to have to wonder where it all suddenly went.
What’s on your gratitude list?
