Welcome to the Gratitude Project, our practice of noticing and actively valuing the good things that happen in our lives. Featured every Sunday, we'll all be listing at least 3 things, in detail, that we're grateful for from this past week. I'll keep the link open throughout the week on the Editor's Picks box, so you can post on the weekdays, too.
For more details about the research on health, decreasing levels of stress hormones, increasing happiness and gratitude, please read the post in which I previewed this feature. Lots of good stuff there.
I'll get things rolling, okay? Click here to read more
I'm very grateful for my partner this week. He was unbelievably supportive, while also exhausted and overwhelmed.
I'm grateful for the secretary at the office where I had to spend the day Wednesday. It was a deeply difficult day, dealing with difficult people, and her kindness made such a difference to me.
I'm grateful for the security-doorman at our building, He's always so thoughtful and funny. And even though I won't see him again after Friday, I've appreciated his warmth a great deal!
