The 30 Days of Gratitude Challenge: Day 01 – Finding Gratitude in the Day

Good evening, chums! Recently, I have been feeling a bit blue in my personal life. I’m not sure if it’s because I have so much going on with school, personal pursuits, and work, or if I’m merely feeling depressed due to some family dysfunction that had been going on. That bit finally reached it’s finale and it was quite disheartening to say the least. No matter the reason behind this bluesy mood, it’s here and it’s preventing me from finding joy in just about anything and everything.

A couple of weeks ago while browsing Pinterest for piercing ideas, I randomly came across this 30-day challenge that was all about recognising and appreciating things in your life that you are grateful for. I saved the challenge and had been waiting to complete it until a phase where it would help me the most, emotionally and mentally. That time has definitely arrived.

The 30 Days of Gratitude Challenge was created by Picking Daisies Blog. All the prompts can be found in the graphic below. One of the things that appeals to me the most about this is the simplicity of the questions. It’s literally about appreciating small moments as much as the big ones. My hope is that by the end of June, I can find some comfort in myself again and be able to recognise moments of joy and care in my surroundings with more ease. Let’s see how it goes.

30 Days of Gratitude Challenge Prompts


Day 01: What are you most grateful for today?

As soon as I read this question, Sir Besty and another one of my close friends popped into my head. In light of recent events in my personal life with my family, I have been feeling very miserable and dejected; questioning my self-worth. But these two individuals have been giving me the swift kick in the arse that I have needed to stay afloat. Their support and their shoulders have been my saving grace. Today, I had conversations with both of them that left me laughing and looking forward to getting out of bed!

    • Eh, we’re all adults. I don’t think we’d mind the R/NC-17 stuff, and it’s okay if something days are blank. I know for sure I’ll have at least one that’ll be blank for me.

      • I’ve never been shy about the full monty. (You know that. 🙂 )But I am really not sure how most of my viewers handle it. I vacillate between being “authentic” and trying not to alienate folks. I rarely get a lot of positive comments but then never any negatives either.

        Never really have a clue IRL what people are thinking either, whether I’m a genius or a blithering idiot, until someone hits me over the head with it. An Asberger sandwich with double cheese.

      • It can be difficult to gauge what viewers and like and don’t like, especially when they aren’t saying much. I assume that when I don’t get much comments on something, it’s not necessarily because they don’t like what I’m talking about, they just don’t have much to contribute to more to whatever’s written. have had chats with other bloggers about this sort of thing.

  3. I’m glad I read this today. I no longer blog publicly, but I do have a personal journal, and pardon me but I’m snatching this. The last few days and weeks have been a rollercoaster and I’ve wound up on the bottom exhausted and with a bad, cynical, depressed attitude. Some things I really wanted and hoped for not only did not come to pass but I was handed a disaster instead when I was ripped off. A fairly major disaster for us. We will manage. We always do – but I’ve got to turn this attitude around. I can’t live with this in my head. So, instead, I’ll take this challenge and put something else in my head instead. 😀 Meanwhile, I shall enjoy your entries as well. Blessedbe.

    • Feel free to snatch away! I’ve been in a very negative head-space as well and when I saw this, I saved it for this sort of mood. It has been helping me find hope in an otherwise rather hopeless and depressing situation. Maybe it can do the same thing for you. ♥♥
