Elizabeth's 365-Day Gratitude Challenge/Community

OK, now we're cooking!

Now I can use the blog for the "positive themed blog posts" I want to write. And use this page strictly for things related to the gratitude challenge!



Here are the "Frequently Asked Questions" regarding the gratitude challenge:

1. When does it start?
The 365-day challenge starts January 1, 2014.

2. What do I have to do?
Commit to writing down 5 things you're grateful for every day. I'm going to post mine on the blog. Feel free to post yours in the comment section, or link to your own blog in the comment section, or, if you feel like the things you're grateful for are too private to put in the blogosphere, then just put "did mine!" in the comments.

Also, if you're having trouble, post about that too, and I'll see what I can find to help you out. We're all in this together. It's a gratitude community.

Finally, once a week, on Fridays, I'll post a check-in to see how we're all doing, and what changes we might be noticing in our lives as we move toward, as my friend Tricia says, "living in active gratitude."

In addition, if you want to, if the spirit moves you to, please share the gratitude challenge with your friends, family, acquaintances, enemies, frenemies...I would love to see this thing go viral.

3. What if I can't post in the comments?
Well, to be perfectly honest, one of my goals is to increase pageviews/subscribers to the blog, but I'll be cross-posting my daily gratitudes to Facebook and Twitter, so feel free to share there as well, if you can't post in the comments. And please share share share with those who might be able to post here!

4. Will you be sending out e-mail reminders to post gratitudes?
Yes! Sign up to receive e-mails by sending an e-mail to 365gratitudes@gmail.com. I will never use your e-mail address to spam you or pass it along to anyone else without your permission.

Update 12/30/13:
