Love Life List

Just some Monday morning alliteration for your reading enjoyment. And hopefully something that gets your week started off on the right note. I got the idea from an Austin blogger named Susie Davis, who says she started these Love Life lists years ago. The concept is simple, really. She opens to the next blank page in her journal, puts the date at the top, and numbers the page from 1-25. Next to each number she writes one thing she loves about her life. She describes it a very settling exercise, one that forces her to focus on the good in her life, as opposed to harping on the things she doesn't have. You guys know that I am a huge fan of lists, and I love spending time thinking about what it is that is bringing me joy that day. Because while not every day may not be great, there is something great in every day.
