Having an Attitude of Gratitude

If I’ve learned anything in the past year, it’s that life, love and all of the things that go with it can be too easily taken for granted. This year has taught that in order to live a life of meaning, a life that’s worth something, you have to be grateful for what you have already.

Blogging is all about sharing, and in turn, inspiring.

I was recently inspired to write a series of posts on gratitude, and how it’s present in my life. I’ve asked fifteen of my friends to join me in an effort to inspire an Attitude of Gratitude in YOU  in this season of thanksgiving, and I hope you’ll join us.
Beginning November 1 and right up until Thanksgiving, I, along with fifteen of my blogger friends, will be here sharing thoughts on gratitude. What we thankful for, how we teach their kids to be grateful, and how we find beauty in the struggles are just a few of the topics we’ll be discussing.
I’m so GRATEFUL to have joining me -
Kristen from Ella Claire

You can read my own Attitude of Gratitude post here.

Each of these amazing ladies has a unique story to tell. Some of them you may know and some may be new to you. I consider each of them a friend. I hope that you make time to stop by each day in November (Monday thru Friday) to welcome them and see what unique thoughts they have to offer.
Be here November 1, when At the Picket Fence‘s own Vanessa will kick off the series. There will be a link up available for those wanting to share their own stories as well (so get those posts ready!).
I would love for you to grab a button and share the series with your readers.
Join us, and be inspired!

Hi! I'm Kristin and I'm the creative mind behind Yellow Bliss Road, where you'll find tons of recipes, free printables, and a little decor and DIY thrown in for good measure. Life can be complicated, so I am all about simplifying wherever I can - from food to decor to DIY - because I believe that it doesn't have to be elaborate or extravagant to be amazing. I am a single adoptive mom with a daughter in Preschool and a son in Kindergarten. My kids are a handful, I'm exhausted and most days my house is a mess - and I'm okay with that!

    What a wonderful series! I can’t wait :)

    I have tried to keep a gratitude diary before, because I am awful about losing focus and forgetting what all is “right” and “good” in my life. This series will be a great reminder :)

    Hi Kristin!

    I think this is such a beautiful idea :) I can’t wait to see what everyone has to say. It’s such an important reminder that no matter what life brings you, you always have more then enough to be grateful for. I’m going through so heavy personal stuff right now and I’m looking forward to the daily reminders I read in this series.

    Thank you so much!

      Ah Sweets – you do indeed have so much to be grateful for, as do we all. We are filling a jar (decorated mason jar, naturally) with the things that we are grateful for and reading them on Thanksgiving day.

      You inspire me, my friend. You are an amazing young woman!

      love and more love
