Last month I proposed a 30 day timeless gratitude challenge following a journaling workshop I led on a yoga retreat. I had no clue what the outcome would look like, or what I would take from my practice – only hoping to open my heart.
Today, (day 30) I realized the concept of a 30 day challenge for TIMELESS gratitude was an oxymoron. Why limit gratitude to 30 days? What did timeless really mean?
My gratitude challenge inspired me to notice gifts all around: a piece of art, transforming advice, and conversations with my great aunts to name a few. Acknowledging others for their words or presence never felt obligatory to the challenge, rather it was heartfelt and soulful.
I was not perfect. There were days I did not post. There were days I let busyness clog my grateful heart falling off the gratitude wagon, but I continued to stay the course. I chose to be as gentle and kind to my heart as I was to those who touched mine.
Would you like to go on this timeless journey too? I promise to hold your hand if you participate. Share what or who you are grateful for and challenge us all to express our hearts and create more joy each day. Now that’s timeless~
