Grateful 3 0 | T W O

Gratitude is not always a natural reaction . 
Gratitude is not always an ingrained feature of humankind . 
Gratitude does not require specific circumstances or belongings .
Gratitude does, however, require an awareness . 
Of the people + places + elements + experiences + abilities 
+ interactions anywhere + everywhere around myself . 
Of the continual attitude I bear . 
An awareness of how I desire to react to everything 
+ how I ultimately choose to react . 

All too often I find myself feeling limited in what feels suitable to be grateful for, 
and what may seem silly or trivial - certainly not legitimately gratitude-worthy, I think . 
Being "selective + choosy" in a process of weeding out what I should + should not have gratitude toward .
But why, oh why, would gratitude need restrictions ? 
So here, November 2nd, is the start to my UNrestricted gratitude : 

I have an entire notepad waiting for me to fill it, so this will not be all . This is, after all only day two .

A L S O : 

I would love to have others join in taking small moments each day to begin filling each empty space in a gratitude notepad like my own . Writing those W O R D S, those reminders off all that you may have to be grateful for .  Already sending out a few notepads . . . join in the goodness, you . 

And for a look into my thankful mind 1 1 . 0 2 . 2 0 1 2  :
