#30ThankfulDays

I cannot believe that tomorrow is the start of November.  This year has really flown by.  I know people say that often, but it honestly feels that way.

Here in the U.S. we usually take time to reflect and be thankful around Thanksgiving. I know what you are thinking, “Duh Kim, it is Thanksgiving.  That is what you are supposed to do.” 

But what if you were mindful about all month long?  What if you made a point to document the things you are grateful for?  What if you purposefully photographed all of the daily reasons you were thankful next month?   The little things like the warm coffee mug in your hands on a chilly morning. And especially the big things like family and friends.

We are all so blessed and fortunate to be living the lives we do.  Take the time for just one moment and snap a photo of what you are thankful for.  The thing you are thankful for in that fleeting moment or the thing you are thankful for every second.

No need for a fancy camera, elaborate editing, or anything along those lines.  This is a personal project not a contest.  Use your phone, use your point and shoot, or use your DSLR (I will use my mirrorless Winking smile), but be mindful of that photo and reflect on why and how you are thankful. 

When you have done that, I would love it if you would share your thankful journey along with me over on Instagram. Use the hashtag #30thankfuldays

Courtney, from Click It Up a Notch, and I will be documenting our 30 Thankful Days on Instagram.  You can follow us on Instagram even if you decide not to join in. Feel free to jump in anytime along the way.  No one is keeping track how many days you do it.
