Gratitude List

Rules of Engagement

I’ve had a bit of a sour attitude lately, it is time to go back to what I know.  One of the things that has helped me in the past is a formal gratitude list.  All things worth while have rules, this is no different.

Rule 1:                                                                                                                                           One entry per day, first thing in the morning.  30 days in a row is the only thing that counts.  Miss a day and start over.  Post 2 in a day, start over.

Rule 2:                                                                                                                             When in doubt, see rule 1.

I’m going to post here every day…after I have tweeted them.  It will start on March 25, 2013.  Stay Tuned!
