Live gratefully

Gratitude is the art of being thankful.

Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all others. ~Cicero

Do you ever look around your world and think about all those things that you want that you don't have? I'll be the first to admit that I have.

I wanted to start looking at my life differently. I wanted to start living my life with gratitude. To be grateful for the big things and the small things.

So I created this gratitude jar.

Looking for an easy and simple way to bring more gratitude into your life? Create a gratitude jar – great for your family or classroom. I love that it’s so easy to implement!

It was so easy to put together! I got a clean jar, a chalk label, and some chalk.

The concept is simple. Every time something happens for which you are grateful for (no matter how small) write it on a piece of paper, fold it, and then put it in the jar.

Read back over your notes of gratitude at the end of the year or when you're having a bad day.

This would be a great concept to introduce to your students in your classroom. You could read all the gratitude notes on the last day of school. What a wonderful way to end your year!

Remember...a moment of gratitude makes a difference in your attitude.
