Gratitude journal 10.31.18

I’ve been keeping a gratitude journal in since Mother’s Day 2018 I learned about gratitude journaling from a YouTube video. Basically you write down the things you’re grateful for each day. My family purchased me a beautiful book to journal in but that book is on the kitchen counter🤣 I have A LOT of time in the morning and I wanted to journal and I own this site so today this blog is gratitude journal🤷🏾‍♀️


It’s Halloween! I’m grateful I get to wear my costume today. I’ve always wanted to be sailor moon and my fiancé surprised me and got me the costume. I never want to take it off.

I’m grateful for my fiancé. He’s just amazing I really can’t express how much I appreciate him. He took it upon himself to add his Facebook friends to my blogs Facebook business page. It grew by like 15 likes. That was just so beautiful. I’m grateful he’s the man I get to spend the rest of my life with. I never thought love like this was real, but it is. I’m grateful for everything I’ve been through because it lead me here. To this man. To this family. To this life and I’m grateful.

I’m grateful for a man that supports my career and my ideas. I’m grateful for a man that can communicate when he needs my time and understands what I’m working toward and loves me.. all of me. The real me. I’m grateful for true love.

I know it has to be hard. I spend a lot of time growing my social media and blogging. It does take a lot of time away from my family in addition to the work hours away from home but we communicated and and found hours that wouldn’t interfere with date night and family night and I’m grateful for that and for open communication. I’m grateful that my family is able to communicate together no matter what.

I’m grateful for my family. I’ve never had a “traditional” family so I don’t know what one is but I know I craved this feeling I have now. I’ve craved the love of my children, I craved Brooke know what a traditional family was like. I craved having a person to enjoy life with happily. I got all of that and more and ever moment I have a family I’m grateful for it.

My work hours have shifted and I have to wake up at 0345/0400 and I’m grateful because that means I’m off early and can be home with my family to do things. I have more time. Yes I wake up early but I’m off early. I have my family life again.. I mean kinda. I can cook for them and pick them up after school which is awesome! I’m grateful for that.

I’m grateful for my blog and all the opportunities it affords me. I’m grateful for the journey of blogging as whole. I learn something new each day. I meet someone new each day. It’s really a beautiful experience and I praise God for this blog and courage to step out and hit publish.

I’m thank for my life today. Someone didn’t wake up but I did. I woke up happy, healthy and blessed and I’m glad.

I’m grateful for my job, our vehicles, I’m grateful for having a roof over my head.

I’m grateful for each breath.

I love gratitude journaling because not matter what is going on. I can look back and see what I had to be grateful for that day.

Some days I’m just glad to be alive and that the tears stopped. I just write what I’m grateful for and suddenly I feel better.

Today I’m grateful my ATM card was NOT comprised. The bank stopped it because they knew I would never make a purchase that expensive..😂😅 the shade of it all😂😂🙌🏾

I think my bank just called me cheap.. but I’m grateful I’m cheap! I’m blessed to be saving my money and I’m blessed and grateful NO MONEY WAS TAKEN FROM MY ACCOUNT 🙌🏾

I have to go get a new card and re-do my accounts but NO MONEY WAS TAKEN from my accounts! I’m grateful. I didn’t panic about that and I normally do.

It’s growth and I’m thankful for spiritual growth.

What are you grateful for today? I’d love to know. Let me know in the comments.


  1. Thank you for sharing. I really enjoying this post. I have been journaling more lately. I have even found a few of my old journals and went back and read entries from almost 5-10 years old — when I was a teenager and in undergrad. Thank god for blessings and growth.

  2. I started journalling earlier this year. I did 3-6 months journalling and meditation, then gradually stopped as I started writing – which relaxes me like meditation – it’s nice to read someone who has such a positive outlook. Imkmow those things don’t come easy (not for me at carioue times) so I have to commend you for that 🙂
    A nice read. I must remember to read more 🙂
