One Good Thing

Tuesday, November 26, 2013

Growing up we ate dinner together as a family nearly every night. Often my mom would ask us "What's one good thing that happened to you today?" Occasionally she would vary the question and ask "What's one good thing that you did for someone else today?" We'd rack our brains and come up with a suitable answer that helped foster mealtime conversation. As an adult I've noticed how easy it is to become wrapped up in our own lives, problems, interests, etc. that sometimes we forget to look outside of ourselves. We mean well, but as humans we forget. In an effort to combat this forgetting, lately I've taken to asking GH one of these questions at the end of the day. When I do forget, he asks me. I've loved how shifting the focus of my day to finding or doing one good thing makes me mindful of others and boosts my own happiness. Last week I created these gratitude vignettes to thank some of the people in my life for one (of many) good things they've done for me. May your Thanksgiving be filled with good people and good things!
