{Gratitude} 365 Photo Project Day 1: Fall Pumpkins

October 1st. The day I chose to start my 365 Gratitude Project. I can't even tell you how excited I am about this. The day after I blogged about The Secret To Feeling Good, a website I follow, called The Creative Mama, posted an article called, The Year of Gratitude.  And then, a few weeks later, I found this class through a friend, called Picture Fall: 30 Days of Bountiful Beauty that I knew I just had to sign up for.  And, I did!  And, it started today!  Yipee!

All of this goes perfectly with my holistic health business and my aspirations to be a photographer.  I'm thrilled to share all of it here, with you, so together we can create an inner-gized life that is full of gratitude for not only the outside beauty that surrounds us on a daily basis, but, for most important of all, our very own, unique inner beauty! Nothing gets more gratifying than that!

Starting right now, I'm going to post something everyday (gonna try to anyway) on gratitude. Gratitude means so much to me and it's something I strive to reflect on daily (which can be hard at times when external and internal distractions pull me in different directions). Once I began being grateful my entire world shifted in such a positive way.  And, when I steer away from my daily gratitude practice, my thoughts and situations that occur in my life sure do let me know.  So when this happens I know it's time to reconnect with gratitude.  That's why it's so important to give gratitude everyday.  Even for things you may not even have in your life that you want. :)

I hope you'll join in on the fun with me.  You don't have to be in a class to participate with me.  My main intent is to have my blog be a place for inspiration. A place where women (and men) can come to learn and share gratitude, beauty, inner peace, love, creativity, joy, abundance, and anything else that goes along with living a holistic lifestyle. You don't have to have pictures either, but rather, come on over and post something in the comments section below about what you're grateful for on any given day. Or maybe share something you're doing with your own gratitude project.

Would you like that? I'd love it!  The more gratitude that fills this space, the more positive life will be!  Woohoo!

Oh gratitude!  Oh, how I love thee!  Today I'm thrilled to say that I have so much gratitude for living in Virginia for the past three years.  Those three years introduced to me to what REAL seasons are.  After living in South Florida all my life, I knew what pumpkins meant this time of year, but now after living in Virginia, I have so much more gratitude for pumpkins than ever before. They truly represent the beginning of Fall: Cool breezes, falling leaves, and beautiful orange, yellow, red, brown and green color.

So today I'm grateful for vibrant fall pumpkins!  Thank you for being beautiful and providing goodness this time of year!
