“The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing,” I’ve been telling myself about nearly everything this week.
I was feeling “behind” with the gratitude journal. It doesn’t seem I have enough time or space for the journal and I thought maybe I should set it aside and back out of the An Attitude of Gratitude Art Journaling Challenge. Then I asked myself, “What is the main thing about the Gratitude Journal?” Okay, why I started it was to connect with other like-minded people, to be intentional about being grateful, and to make a visual expression of that gratitude. The next question I asked myself: “Am I doing that?” Well, yes, with the journal and in life the past few weeks. I don’t seem to get as much done as I hoped for or think I should, but maybe I need to let go (again) of expectations and outcomes. It’s not about me and my performance. Let go. Give. Share. Be grateful. Fill a negative space with a positive outlook. I have a lot to be thankful for!
