I decided to write a weekly gratitude series on my blog this year. Last year my gratitude journal wasn’t always filled with words of gratitude. And this year I am planning to change that. Along with my daily gratitude journaling, I will publish a weekly gratitude post every Sunday. And a monthly gratitude post at the end of the month. Because gratitude is never enough or never too much. Am I right?
How was my first week of 2022?
It was nothing out of ordinary. Uneventful. For that I am grateful.
Kids went back to school after the winter holidays. Though the covid cases are rising here in our corner of the world, the first week of school went okay. I hope that the rest of the month would go uneventful in this regard. I am most definitely grateful for our health.
I read 2 books this week. Before you begin the applause, it was 2 comparatively smaller books – Nancy Drew Mysteries – which I thoroughly enjoyed reading. Nancy Drew Mysteries are a light read and a perfect way to get into a reading routine. In fact, I also love reading the Harry Potter series to get me into that reading mode. Do you have a book that gets you into reading mode? Next on my list is Where The Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens. It’s a big book, bigger than the Nacy Drew Mysteries and I hope to finish it this month. Thankful for the books that keep me company.
I wrote and published on this blog and also on my medium account. I also published a poem on my YouTube channel. I couldn’t publish a new episode on my podcast, though. But, all in all, for a slow week it was a fine one. I also wrote morning pages almost every morning and wrote some poetry pieces as well, which are yet to see the light of the world. No matter what, I am always pleased when I get into my writing mode. I feel positive and wonderful when I start the day scribbling down a couple of verses. I can never be grateful enough for my affair with words.
I also flirted with a couple of fluid art projects which I am thoroughly enjoying. My two boys also started playing with pouring paint projects. I am in two minds about their likeness in painting because as much as I love that they are enjoying the process, I am not so in love with the fact that I have to share my paint with the boys who keep advising me on what color I should use next. I am choosing to be grateful that my boys are staying away from their gadgets for those 30 minutes to play with paints.
Today I am grateful for writing down this post. I hope to keep this going on a weekly basis.
How was your week?
