Gratitude Life

Weekly Gratitude -1 #SoulfulSunday

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?

  1. I’m planning a monthly gratitude post – every last Friday of the month. And I’m being quite consistent with writing 3 gratitudes in my Bujo every night.
    I love, love your art wall. Would love to see a picture of the boys painting too. ♥

  2. This is such a lovely post. You have done so much! And Nancy Drew and Harry Potter, definitely happy reads. I can read Three cousins at Mistletoe Farm by Enid Blyton over and over and over again. Your art wall is so vibrant! I am getting back from covid, but I managed to read around four or five books I think. I was just binge reading regency romances.

  3. I was thinking of doing a monthly gratitude post this year, in addition to the weekly gratitude list that I’ve been maintain in Notion since October last year. Love your art wall!

  4. Last year was hard for me and somewhere down the line I stopped doing a monthly gratitude recap. I want to pick that again. I have seen Sanch doing a weekly one and sure it’s great.
    I love that flirt with colors 🙂 I am sure the boys are having fun!
    Where The Crawdads Sing is one of my favorite books. Let me know how you find it. I am listening to Beautiful World, Where are you by Sally Rooney and enjoying it so far 🙂

  5. I love the art wall and I’m glad that you and your boys are spending time together on creative pursuits! Even if you do have to share your paints… Maybe have them research how to make tempera paints? See if they can supply you!

What do you think? Please share! :)
