Gratitude, does it work?

Tuesday, July 24, 2007

Now comes the time to record our experiences and our perceptions of our most recent project.

  • How often did you participate?
  • Gratitude, does it "work" for you?
  • Are you more prosperous?
  • Are you happier? wiser? healthier? more at peace?
  • What was your favorite part of the project?
  • Would you recommend it to others?
  • Are you going to continue to use it as a daily practice?
  • Is there anything else you want to say about it?

Ok, so here's how it worked for me:

I participated every day.
And it was very successful.

I have more money in the bank today than I have had in years - of course, I am on my way out the door to spend it on 2 years of late property taxes, and other overdue bills - but nevertheless, the money is there to do that with, and for me, that's BIG.

I am also feeling much better about myself, my depression is lifting, I am having these thoughts that life is good - and that my life in particular is good.

My favorite one was the one where we listed the things we were thankful that WERE'T happening. That one was a blast! And I still do it every day.

Today, for example, I am really really thankful that giant spiders are not keeping me hostage in a dungeon and sucking my blood!!!

Yes, I would recommend it to others, and have done so repeatedly for the last couple of weeks.

I hope I continue with it... I really do.

I am thinking about how nice it would be to have a gratitude journal similar to our month long project. Maybe I might make one. It all depends on whether or not I can get Michelle to do the drawings for it...

Hint.. hint...

I participated almost every day. I read the spot even if I did not respond.
I do think Gratitude is a wonderfully healthy way to look at life.
I am no more prosperous than I was a month ago.
Maybe a little more at peace but not wealthier that's for sure.
My favorite part was the direct questions to respond to I found they really helped focus me in the project.
I will continue with the prosperity project as an additon to my spiritual quest.

I participated some, and I’ve had a pretty good month. Incidentally, I have always been a big believer in the gratitude aspect of spirituality. I kinda think it’s the wind that blows the sails, along with faith that moves energy around in the universe. My favorite part was looking at the questions every day that I could, and even just pondering them to myself if I had no time to post. They were good questions. Good inspiration to find something, every day, to be grateful for. It just causes more love in your heart. I would absolutely recommend this project to others, if I knew others. Another thing I would like to say is that Two Feathers has once again given us a way to grow spiritually, and an opportunity to love and live with deeper meaning. Thank you for giving us this forum. and Shirley, I am all kinds of excited about those pictures!

I participated almost every day. I do think the gratitude month was successful in that I am definitely happier and more thankful for things in my life. Money-wise I can't say I am more prosperous - the doctor's office didn't get my paperwork in to the insurance company so I haven't received a disability check in a couple of weeks. Luckily I have a daughter who lives with me and has a job!

I did find a dollar in the middle of the lawn when I was mowing the other day! I was HOPING it was $100 but it was just $1.00, but I was still grateful!

I have always been one to count my blessings, and I think this project reinforced that habit, which is a good habit to have. I am sure I will continue it. I do know a lot of people who complain, complain, complain all the time and never seem to be grateful of anything and I try really hard to not be like that. I definitely would recommend the project to others, and have suggested it to a few people.

I would also like to thank Two Feathers for this great blog which has given me a lot more peace in my life than I had before. You are appreciated!! I know you enjoy it but it is also very time consuming!

Thank you guys for appreciating me, and for appreciating the project. I really do enjoy doing this, and words cannot even express how grateful I am that you guys are doing this with me.

I love you guys. You are precious to me. And I know that sounds kind of hokey maybe, but it's true.

I apreciate this project and especially the questions.I have seen the beauty that is still in the wonderful vistas throughout this continent!

I am not so concerned about the money as the happiness and I have been happier than I have been in a very long time. Thank you!

I am late in posting, because I've had an abundance of other things to do! :)

I don't really know if I have more money now than before, because we DID receive unexpected income, but it went right back out to pay bills...but we did get caught up on two credit cards we were behind on, and some other bills, so I think it did bring extra money to us and I think we were wise in our decisions about how to use it.

I did get 23 hours of overtime, which I will get paid for in a couple of days, and in August there are 5 Fridays, which means 5 paychecks this month for me and my husband, so I see the abundance on the horizon!

I REALLY enjoyed this month's project. It was so FUN and EASY. I didn't have to think about anything, set aside special time to do anything, run to the store to purchase anything...I just came to the site every day (sometimes a couple of times a day because it always cheers me up to read everybody's posts!) Fun questions, cute pictures, all in all this was a very fun and enjoyable month. I would definitely recommend it to others.

When will be our one-year anniversary for this project? I am still sending out sweepstakes entries for everybody whose address I have, and I fully expect someone to post soon that they have won something exciting! :)
