A Year Of Gratitude

1 Year. 12 Months. 52 Weeks. 365 Days.  What will YOU do with your today? With the clean slate that we've been given at this time of year, I LOVE thinking of new ways to be better.  I am so excited about this new kit from Compendium books!  It's called: A Year of Gratitude.

It's an amazing little kit. You open it up to see this! 52 blank Thank You cards with cute gold envies & a little Journal that has blank sheets, but also takes you through prompts that really bring out the gratitude.

I love this quote on the inside of the box: 
"Each act of gratitude starts a ripple of kindness that begins with you & reaches further than you can imagine.  Every letter you write adds joy to the world, so take out your pen & begin."


I LOVE the colors, love the fonts & designs & LOVE this entire concept. It goes perfectly with my One Little Word & One Little Goal concept for 20.thirteen.
I love these steps outlined in the journal:
1. Start noticing and listing the things you are grateful for.
2. Include things you normally take for granted.
3. Keep track of the thank-you notes you send each week.
4. Write down the ways that your life changes.
With each of these steps, it takes you a bit further & really makes you think about it.

Then, the journal has different sections about: 
1.What makes a good thank-you note.
-which I LOVE! 
2. People I'm grateful for this year.
3. Some thoughts on living everyday as a thank-you.
4. sections with different 'gratitude' quotes that are so lovely!
I'm looking forward to taking the steps to be STRONG...in everything I do.  
And, even though I feel like I am grateful...this focus throughout the year will make me stronger. It will help me be strong in my focus, time, & sharing as I write personal little thank-yous!
Gone are the days of personal correspondance & I think this is just so heartfelt.

So...you'll be hearing about my experience here each week! 
I'm off to begin!

"1 year. 12 months. 52 weeks. 365 days. What will you do with your today?"

^-Soooo totally quoteworthy!!
Is it your own, or did you find it somewhere?
Curious, curious, curious!
Because I'd LOVE to use it for scrapping & such, and I want to properly attribute it. :)
