21 Days of Gratitude Challenge

I truly believe that gratitude can be contagious, so let’s shake off the whiney and grumpy mood we can get in and for the next 21 days, let’s become beauty seekers with our 21 Days of Gratitude Challenge!

21 days of gratitude challenge 

Let’s train our  heart and mind to look for the beauty that surrounds us, the big and the small moments. The Tuten familia along with 20 other bloggers plan on doing this challenge for the next 21 days so I hope you join us on this journey!

It’s so easy to complain, grumble, or not to be content with our situation, our body, our home, our kids, our food, our job, our significant other, our parents, our school, our friends, and life as we know it. In an effort to be less of that and to focus our day on the joy and beauty that surrounds us, I want to challenge myself, my family, and you to be more aware of the blessings we are surrounded with each day.

My hope is that you will find beauty and blessings in the mundane, in the beautiful, in the ugly as you: change diapers, wash dishes, sit in holiday traffic, stir the pot of soup, look into your loved one’s eyes, hold your child in your arms… We are constantly surrounded by small miracles. Let’s open our eyes and embrace them.

We will discover joy when we discover gratitude.

The challenge is to stop, reflect and engage in a moment of thankfulness each day this month with your family.

How to join the challenge:

1. Print off one of the prompts from above that you prefer.

2. Let others know about our 21 Days of Gratitude Challenge for the Whole Family and use the hashtag #21DaysGratitude. Our hope is that it’s contagious and 1000′s of families join in, so help us get the word out. In the midst of our busyness, it’s easy to forget to pause and be thankful.  Sometimes we are in the midst of difficult circumstances and we struggle with being thankful and that’s when we need thanksgiving to intervene.

3. Stop, reflect, and engage in a moment of thankfulness each day this month, using the prompts. It can be big or small moments of gratitude.

4. If you’d like to share a thankful moment on Facebook, twitter or your blog using the hashtag. Remember the sharing part is what makes it even more contagious. If you’re doing this as a family let your kids snap a photo of something they are thankful for. It can be as simple as taking a picture of a note written on a napkin that says “I am thankful I get to hold these little pudgy fingers”. You can journal it or do a service project. Make it simple or get as creative as you like.

5. Don’t worry if you are getting a late start or if you skipped a day. Just jump in and follow along.
