P2P Exercise: The Everlasting Gratitude List
I looooove to write. Always have, and it’s even what I do for a living. P2P (Pen 2 Paper) Exercises are writing exercises meant to provoke thought about your own emotional state and spiritual journey. And set your laptop aside. As the name implies, it’s best to do them longhand, with good ol’ fashioned pen and paper!
Around Thanksgiving, everyone’s Facebook feed seems to crop up with the daily “thankful for” post that folks put up to show gratitude for the people and things in their lives. This P2P Exercise is like that, but on steroids. Mega, huge, HGH clinic in South Florida steroids! (Sorry, couldn’t resist.)
For the next 30 days, write down 10 things you’re grateful for each day. Here’s the catch: You can’t repeat anything. Each day, you have to come up with 10 completely different things.
The first week or so is probably going to be a breeze – stuff like a roof over your head, food in the fridge, your friends and family, and so on. After that, it’s going to get to be a challenge. You’re going to have to look harder to find stuff. But GUESS WHAT – that’s the magic! By looking for things that generate gratitude, you’ll begin to see it everywhere.
(If you really want to make this a challenge, expand this to 60 days, or even 90!)
I haven’t done this myself … I just heard about it in the last few days. But I’d like to give it a try. I’ll keep you updated on my progress.
Let’s do it! What’s on your first list?
