Thankful For

I still write longhand morning pages and I still make lists of the things I am grateful for almost every day. There are so many ways to do it — last year I wrote a numbered list of gratitude at the end of my pages; this year I write sentences about gratitude at the beginning of my pages.

This is a sampling from the early fall of this year, as made with wonderful Wordle.

For a while I was paying attention to things I was bothered over but that I could still be grateful for, which is why the word “stupid” features so prominently.

Here’s the same batch of gratitude, mapped without common words removed. Wordle has a lot of cool options.

I hope that everyone had a happy and safe Thanksgiving holiday, and that in the rest of this festive season you’re able to connect with things that have meaning for you!
