A couple of years ago when I was down and I mean seriously down I was advised by my psychiatrist to keep a gratitude diary. SERIOUSLY I thought. I mean he was no Oprah and offering this type of advice seemed rather out of character. Well it seems that the good Doctor was right.
Given where I am at the moment, I thought now would be a good time to start it up again. As you can see from the entry I have made today, it’s not your usual kind of gratitude diary. I have designed it around the 5 senses – it was a whole lot easier to find the little things in life that go unnoticed like ‘the sound of frogs at night’, rather than ‘I am grateful for my job’.
I will do this each day as it’s a sure fire reminder that really, when all is said and done, I am missing out on nothing. What small things are you grateful for today?

Today I am grateful for –
The site of: A clear blue sky as I drive to work
The sound of: Frogs outside my door last night
The touch of: Fresh sheets on my bed after I took a shower
The smell of: Any kind of bread – at all
The taste of: Fresh mango with a tiny bit of chili salt
