Making resolutions for the new year hasn't ever been a real practice here. This year, however, I have decided to discipline myself to do some journal writing daily.
I participate in an online book club on Twitter, and our most recent read was "Grateful" by Diana Butler Bass. When I happened upon the "Gratitude Journal for Women" on a sale rack, then spied the lone dish towel amongst others with a Valentine theme, it seemed as though I was being nudged toward considering gratitude at this point in time. Now, to discipline myself to take about five minutes a day to write in that journal!
As I have been considering gratefulness, it seems to me to be slightly different from thankfulness, but it's difficult for me to elaborate on the difference. What about you? Do you relate thankfulness and gratefulness to be the same....or different?
