I started journaling in grade school, and I’ve done it ever since. I enjoy writing down life’s moments, both big and small, that I always want to remember.
By deciding on what to write, I’m able to reflect on my life, my thoughts, and my feelings. It’s both therapeutic and satisfying.
My husband has never journaled so he has never gotten to experience the joys or the benefits from it. This Valentine’s Day that’s going to change!
Weekly Expressions of Gratitude
I’ve gotten us a Couple’s Gratitude Journal, where each week we both write about how much we appreciate the other person. I know we appreciate each other, but this is a chance for us to do a better of expressing it regularly.
Plus, we’ll both receive the benefits of showing gratitude that include things like being happier and healthier and increased feelings of connectedness.
Expressing gratitude is special way to express love. What we write in our Couple’s Gratitude Journal each week will essentially be love notes. After 52 weeks, we’ll have a whole year of love notes we can go back and read over and over again!
As we use our Couple’s Gratitude Journal, our relationship will grow even stronger. I can’t think of a better Valentine’s Day gift than that, can you?!
The more you practice gratitude, the more you see how much there is to be grateful for, and your life becomes an ongoing celebration of joy and happiness. – Don Miguel Ruiz
