As I lay here in my hammock at 6:44am watching the sunrise over Solarte Island here in the Caribbean of Panama…I’m filled with gratitude.

As you hear in my video I shot above, this was an exercise that I was introduced to 8 years ago.

Keep a Gratitude journal….and write down 5 things you are Grateful for each morning.

When I first started, I was consistent for over a year with writing in my Gratitude journal, then as life goes…you miss a day, then another and so on.

Today, I’m getting back on track and will be consistent each day.

so, here’s the Gratitude of the Day exercise….

What am I Grateful for Today on Dec 16th, 2014:

  • Riding bikes with my daughter, Hanalei, to school each day.
  • My office view is the Caribbean Sea with beautiful mountain views of the Panama mainland
  • Almost fully recovered from double hernia surgery 2 months ago
  • Watching the sunrise over the Caribbean, while sipping on tasty Panamanian coffee.

I just did a quick Google search this morning on “Gratitude of the Day” and I found a
cool .pdf and a YouTube Ted Talk that I would like to share….

  • The Gratitude Challenge, a 21-day project by Tiny*Prints

  • YouTube:  Gratitude | Louie Schwartzberg | TEDxSF
