Welcome To The Gratitude Challenge! Day 1: The Gratitude Jar

By Team BLAM

Welcome to Day 1 of our Gratitude Challenge. Every day this week we want you to be sure you check in with us to take the Gratitude Challenge for the day. Today’s challenge is to make a Gratitude Jar. It doesn’t have to be fancy. It doesn’t even have to be a jar to be honest. It just needs to be a container for you to place your gratitude. Place the Gratitude Jar along with small squares of paper and a pen in a central place in your home that everyone can easily see and access.

Every morning before getting your day started and leaving the house you (and everyone in your family) need to write down what you’re grateful for and put it in the jar. Doing this every day over the next week will create within you and your family a habit of FOCUSING FIRST on what you’re grateful for. At the end of the week long challenge you should sit down with your family (or with just yourself if you’re doing it alone) and share out loud all of the things that you all have to be grateful for. Watch how the atmosphere changes when you do this. Pay attention to how it impacts your family. Being grateful is a beautiful thang!

    I searched high and low to find one among the many saints that there are who was specifically for the quality gratitude but the only one that I could find is Saint Teresa of Avila. She is the patron saint for those in need of grace. Since in order to have the quality of gratitude one needs grace, I think that she is the one you have been searching for.
