One Last YOG by Barbara Quinn

My last gratitude post. Oh my.

It’s hard to believe we’ve gone through a year expressing our gratitude on a daily basis, but here it is the end of December with a new year on the way.

I’m grateful that we were able to finish out this project. Life had its ups and downs this past year, but we kept on being grateful through it all. What a help it was to turn to this gratitude blog each day. I learned much from the ladies of the Yog, and because of their words it has become easier to be grateful. Like practicing an instrument or a language, the more I studied their posts, and wrote my own, the more gratitude I was able to express. The more gratitude I expressed, the better I felt, the more I wanted to be grateful. It’s more than a win-win situation, it's an avalanche of gratitude, a gratitude addiction.

We’re going to leave this gratitude blog and journal of the past year up for others to find. That’s one of the nice things about the net. Once something is out here in the ether, it can stay for a long, long, time and be found by new people who need a daily shot of inspiration.

Thank you Yoggers, readers, posters, and lurkers. We’re grateful! And I hope to continue being grateful for as long as I can.

Happy New Year!

I can't believe a year's gone by since we began. My last YOG is tomorrow, then Angie, then to end the YOG on New Year's Eve is our Patresa.

Ah...I've been wondering what would become of the YOG after this year. Congratulations on a year of gratitude ladies. I have enjoyed your YOG, and learned some things as well.

I've learned so much from you, ladies, but most of all that gratitude is a choice. Sometimes it's a hard one, or something to be worked on by a shifting of the lens, but it can be done. And like Barb says, it gets easier with practice. May we all have much to be thankful for in the coming days and years. Hugs.

Thanks for letting me listen in. The whole year has been a bit different for me. Lots of successes and very few let downs. It is a mindset and I really like it a lot.
