There is a lot to be said about the way you start your day. Many people say that setting your mind and heart in the right direction can literally affect everything that lies ahead of you. Since November is a month that calls forth thankfulness why not use it as a springboard to create the daily practice of a gratitude journal? Whether it be large scale thanks, like family and a roof overhead or the tiny details like a warm cup of tea or a lovely magazine to savor, there is much to be thankful for. Who knows, you may just keep it up all year long.
