Thankfulness ~ can it be intentional

Have you ever thought much about being thankful?  About trying to find things, each and every day to be joyful about?

Will admit that it is hard to do some days.  There are days that are rough and tough to get through; just plan hard.  How can finding joy be accomplished on those days?

I've been blogging, on another page, for 81 days straight now about joy.  There have been days that are incredibly easy, so very easy.  The list is long.  Other days, I have to try hard to find just 3 (kind of a self imposed minimum).  I'm finding now that is becoming a habit, something I look forward to seeking out each day.  Things that are different, memories of people, how sounds or music effect me.  Finding it amazing, that even with the hard days, I am able to find, on average, over 5 things to be thankful for.

What can you be thankful for today?  What can you write down that makes you smile during a rough patch?  Maybe it is a sunset, or person, or a kind act!  Be intentional, be thoughtful, be on the lookout.  Find that joy!

Take a look at mine, if you need help getting started:
