Gratitude Journal Experiment: Day 9- Gratitude Journaling Results

We eased into the day. One minute of bliss at a time. Took a walk through the jungle and marveled at the plethora of wildlife and magical life that inhabit its majesty. What a world we live in. Overly descriptive, but true.

How often do we find the time to stop and enjoy all of the beauty that surrounds us? No matter what your situation has to offer, there are always sunrises and sunsets. Good people to line the path your day might take. Little surprises to remind you that this life is ever-changing and unexpected at its core. You never know what tomorrow will bring, so take in every moment like you mean it.

The Results

In the past day we have received new clients and found cool places to enjoy life. There has been more nature around us and a better sense of our surroundings. Answers have been coming to us in a calm and efficient manner, which has paid off positively. In the fateful words of Ice Cube “Got to say it was a good day.”

The Results
One really cool thing is that the 3 of us seem to be really flowing together even more than usual. Of course, we spend lots of time together anyway and rarely argue. But, now we seem to be taking more needed personal time, and coming together more consciously. We’re paying closer attention to our individual needs and paying closer to attention to one another’s needs too. That was unexpected but very needed.

As far as our business goals, we couldn’t be happier. We’re getting more and more readers from all over the world and we feel very productive.

The weekend’s here now. So, we’re gonna relax into this gratitude vibe and see how we can ride that wave even longer. Well have more on this for you Monday!

Gina, Doug and Dougie
