Renting out a Refurbished Lease on Life I AM GRATEFUL FOR … LOTS And I Feel Better Because I Am!

I am grateful for a team that believes in me. I am grateful for my wife and being able to talk through it. I am grateful for capitalism. It leads to amazing service. I am grateful I can do it on my own (and that I don’t have to). I am grateful that money is not my motivator.

Since the beginning of the year, I have been relatively consistent at daily journaling. Yes, I admit I have some breaks, but I am pretty proud of myself overall. I tried journaling a few years ago after reading “The Miracle Morning” and actually implemented the teachings for a while. However, it stopped rather abruptly and didn’t resume until this year.

I find journaling really helps me think or at least solidify my thoughts. I often just write questions, things I am thinking about, or things I think I should be thinking about.

My journaling rarely ends up longer than a few paragraphs, and I think I have only broken a page once or twice. But it is working, and I am keeping it up.

I am grateful for a team that can hold it down (and hard days).

One thing I do every day is a fill-in-the-blank exercise.“I amgrateful for _______.”I just complete the sentence every day. It’s just one line per day, but it is really helpful.

• I am grateful for my boys who like running around naked. • I am grateful for grit. • I am grateful for a daughter who reminds me to chill. • I am grateful for problems … so I can solve them.

There is a lot of cool research about the benefits of gratitude (including positive mental and physical health benefits), but I won’t get into that here. I do want to talk about my family’s gratitude habit and share a few things that I amgrateful for with you. FAMILY GRATITUDE Anne and I have started regularly asking our kids to share a few things they are grateful for each day. Now remember, my four kids’ ages range from 2–9, so we get quite a variation. This morning, one of the younger ones was grateful for “poop,” which was vehemently argued and defended by one of the older ones.

It is not written (yet), but I am also thankful for you , our clients and supporters. Our business and the current life I am living would not be possible if it were not for you. Please know that my team and I are very grateful for you, and we hope that even if you don’t hear it, you at least feel our gratitude in the service we provide.

We are starting to hear some recurring things, like the Earth, God and Jesus, my family, etc., but we also get a sprinkle of really striking ones, like “having enough.”

With gratitude,

SHARING A FEW THINGS I AM GRATEFUL FOR Writing this forced me to read back over my one-liners since the beginning of the year. That was great in and of itself. I have a lot to be grateful for. I want to share a few random ones that give an overall sense of where I am currently.

P.S. I like this quote by Eckhart Tolle: “Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance.”

I am grateful for friendships that age well.

P.P.S. If you are open to it at all, I strongly suggest getting started with a one-line journal. Create a fill-in-the-blank question to complete each day. Start with, “I am grateful for _______,” and see where it goes. I am confident you will like it. Plus, it is not a huge commitment. Who can’t write a line a day?

• I am grateful for my kids playing cops and robbers together. • I am grateful for the ability to set my own future!
