Gratitude challenge week 31

“Nothing that is done for you is a matter of course. Everything originates in a will for the good, which is directed at you. Train yourself never to put off the word or action for the expression of gratitude.” — Albert Schweitzer

Calling all you beautiful grateful ones!

I’d love to publish your guest post… You’ve been getting in touch with your gratitude for a while now, almost a year. Congratulations!

I am so humbled and inspired by the gratitudes you’ve shared with me this year. You’ve moved me to send out an open invitation to you (and to anyone else you know who’s rocking a gratitude practice) to write a guest post for the Morning Gratitudes blog.

It’s simple. Write your article about gratitude and send it over. I will be posting submitted gratitude posts between now and the end of this year. If you have images that illustrate your blog, send them along too (your own images preferably, or with permissions and attributions).

I’m so excited to share with my readers how the practice of gratitude has had an impact on your life.

Send your submission to me here. And of course, if you’re moved to, share a gratitude in the comments below. Yay!

My gratitude jar


I’m a barely tamed hippie, sage, seasoned, sarcastic (not all the time any more, but still). I’m a mom, a daughter, sister, a neighbor, and a friend. I’ve been on this meandering journey — like you, probably — seeking a better connection to and experience of peace, harmony, and fun in every bit of life. I’m single, quite good at it, and mostly love it. I’m here for the conversations I get to have with you, which these days center on exploring the mystery and beauty of life, work, health, aging, and creative expression. Want to know a little more about me and my journey? Explore the site. Read the blog. Connect with me on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, and LinkedIn.
