The GRATITUDE Challenge

  1. Compose a "Statement of Gratitude" (Why are you grateful and what are you grateful for?) This can be serious or funny.
  2. Post this statement with a creative title.
  3. Copy from "START COPY*" through "*END COPY*," and paste at the end of your post. Add your site to the end of the list.
  4. Tagging is optional but encouraged.
  5. Once completed, leave me a comment with the link to your post or email the link to Yes (at) AreYouGrateful (dot) Com
  6. I will add your post to my site with a link back and add your site to the main list.
  7. I suggest keeping your list current so that everyone who participates gets maximum benefit.
Go HERE for more details (optional.)
*START COPY*
In order to be able to achieve and maintain happiness we need to, actively, be able to do two things:
  1. Complain and then let go (Dump the baggage, the roadblocks to happiness.)
  2. Openly Express Gratitude (The open expression of gratitude promotes happiness.)
After all, everyone has something to be grateful for and/or something to complain about. If you would like to accept the challenge, please follow the appropriate link and do so: "Are You Grateful?", "Complain Complain Complain."

Contributors to "Are You Grateful?" & "Complain Complain Complain" are: 1-Attitude, the Ultimate Power 2-Max 3-DianaCA's Metamorphoses 4-Mental Poo 5-My Thoughts 6-Baba Doodlius 7-Wake Up America 8-Life is a Roller Coaster 9-Life and Me 10-pinay mommy's love blog 11-My Happiness Haven 12-And Life Goes On for a Filipino Mom 13-Blessed Sanctuary 14-Expressions And Thoughts 15-Memories by Jenn 16-Reminiscence of My Adventures 17-In the Life of Mne 18-Juliana's Lair 19-Pinay Wahm 20-Lucid Creativity 21-Winged Words 22-Irresistible Fascinations 23-A Little Time 24-See Me For What You Will 25-Greatest Reviews 26-ETC ATBP 27-Gandacious 28-We Are Family 29-Journey to this thing called LIFE 30-www.rajeshrana.net 31-www.rajeshrana.com 32-BaReFooTeD Me 33-Uncomplicated 34-Points of View 35-Pride & Prejudice 36-Colorful World 37-Nora's Notes 38-A Daily Walk With Bill & Gina 39-Strange but True 40-Everything Under The Sun ( Beth Rebokon ) 41-Kaleidoscope 42-Fil-Oz Blog 43-By Osc@r Luiz 44-Comedy Plus 45-Blogging by Sandee 46-Soul Meets World 47-Mae's Memoirs 48-Beyond the Rave Reality 49-Amori, poesie, arte, chat by Hanna 50-Attached at the Hip 51-Carver's Sight or is that Site? 52-Empress Reviews 53-Simple Pleasures In My Heart 54-Lourdes' mia 55-A Grateful Heart 56-Majorsleepyhead 57-Scrappy n Happy in Ohio 58-CHOC MINT GIRL 59-Extraordinary Things 60-ZOOROPAZOO 61-BeNolSatuEm 62-As The World Turns 63-Your Caring Angels 64-Life Is Wonderful To Know Everyday 65-Sugar Magnolias 66-Little Peanut 67-Creative In Me 68-Me and Mine 69-Pea in a Pod 70-the diary of the Pink & Brown Wedding 71-good thoughts, good trades, good life 72-My Blog - all things me 73-Rainbows 74-Little Corner of Mine 75-Me, Myself and I 76-My Planet Purple 77-Amel's Realm 78-A Handful of Surprises 79-A Detour 80-Something Purple 81-Vanity Kit 82-Are You Grateful? 83-A Simple Life 84-BlogTips.Com 85-Balitang Kalye 86-Mariuca 87- Emila Yusof 88-A Total Blog 89-My Life in this Wonderful World 90-MommyAllehs 91-Things That Suck 92-A Mother's Stuff 93-Princess Vien 94-My Inner Thoughts Revealed 95-Roxiticus Desperate Housewives 96-Apples Of The Eyes 97-Nita's Random Thoughts 98-Nita's Corner 99-Thomas Digital Services 100-A Mother's Thoughts101-Meltwater.

Hey Mel,

Great site!!! I loved it! But I would like to make a suggestion: the header should have a photo of a lawn (equally gree, but it gives a sense of being grateful to the Lord for such creation)! Let me know what you think...

Congratulations for your new project, my friend :D!

Cheers

Monday Morning Power said...

Max.
I absolutely agree. I just have not yet found the right photo. It needs to be "perfect." Do you have any?

Also, would you care to be the first to contribute a "Statement of Gratitude?"

Max said...

Mel,

I don't think that I have a photo of a great lawn, but I will look for it (I am not much of a photo person)!

I would care a lot :D! Give me a few days (this week is being impossible for me *nodding*)...and I will follow the instructions :D!

Thanks for the invitation, my friend :)!

Cheers

Monday Morning Power said...

Max,
Great! I have a few that I will also add, however, I will wait for yours as the first.

Max said...

Mel,

I have just been at your site and the image on the header is just lovely :D! Congratulations!

I am starting my text already....

Have a great weekend ;D!

Monday Morning Power said...

Hi Max,
I thought that you might like it. I look forward to your submission.

DianeCA said...

I have now published my submission on my site....hope I got the rules right...come in and see and add me to your gratitude list!!

By the way, you might think about setting up your comments so blogs out side of blogger can comment. Mine is on wordpress. I do fortunately have a blogger account.

Done with masterlist

May i know if i made it right

toby said...

Hi Monday morning,how do you make
your blog Areyougreatful.blogspot.com
Can be browsed using areyougreatful.com

Monday Morning Power said...

Hi Toby,

When I have an idea for blog, I first determine if the domain is available. After buying the domain I have all hits to the domain automatically forwarded to the blog. This way, if the concept goes BIG I can have it hosted on the domain itself.

I use GoDaddy.com for this. They have the best customer service I have ever seen.

I hope this helps.

toby said...

thanks for the info

Hi Philippinolifeabroad,

I was blessed with meeting you. Hot Thank you! came out of itself while reading your statement of gratitude. My post was immediately put in response.

My blog Discovery of oneself
http://artbytomas.blogspot.com/
thanks for its inclusion into your fabulous blogroll of gratitude.

artbytomas said...

Thank you very much for the adding of my post to your wonderful site. It's so fine to be among people who share the gratitude - the lifeblood.
Yet it was sorrowful for I could not find my name on the main list though I did all that was requested for that. What is missing? What should I do for the ending "...165-Discovery of oneself ..." would appear not only on my blog http://artbytomas.blogspot.com/ but the master link too?
I would greatly appreciate your reply. Thank you once again.
