100 Things I’m Grateful for in January 2019

So by now I am hoping you have read about my gratitude challenge for 2019, or even better are planning to join in. If this is the first you are hearing about it, don’t worry – there’ still to join and February’s challenge is not going live until Monday 4th February.

I’ve had a couple of people contact me on Twitter saying that they were struggling to get to 100, so I thought that by maybe sharing mine it would give people some inspiration. If you are struggling I would say think of things that you take for granted, things that make you happy and give you pleasure, an experience that has made you stronger, something that is coming up this year that you are looking forward to. It really is about finding gratitude in the everyday.

Here are 100 things I am grateful and I found after I got into the flow of it, I could have written more actually. They are in no particular order I find this works for best if it’s a bit of a brain dump.

One thought on “100 Things I’m Grateful for in January 2019

  1. I love how simple this is. When you put it in words and seeing 100 you think wow I could never list 100 things and then reading your list you don’t even realise. Like having a dryer. I totally get that I’d be so lost without mine. It helps me feel so much more in control with housework. I might participate in your feb challenge!
