Gratitude Journal: Day 6
November 8, 2020

I’ve adopted a daily gratitude practice. Every morning for the rest of November, I start the day by writing 10 things I’m thankful for. Then, to keep myself accountable, I’ll share my list on this website, Instagram, and Facebook.

1️⃣ I am grateful for the weekends because I value time to bond with my family away from the computer.

2️⃣ I am infinitely grateful for all the times that my kids DON’T come into the bathroom while I’m having a few minutes of daddy time.

3️⃣ I am infinitely grateful for the space that Carrie and I give each other every morning to work on our gratitude practice because this is what’s going to drive real change in our life.

4️⃣ I am infinitely grateful to the one person who watched my first ever Facebook live because I was terrified to do it and I’m glad at least someone saw it.

5️⃣ I am infinitely grateful for Bodhi’s willingness to go grocery shopping during our Saturday “special time” even though he would rather be home playing with toys because sometimes, the family needs groceries and it’s the only time to get them.

6️⃣ I am infinitely grateful for having a movie theater 8 minutes from our house because going to the movies by myself is a big part of my self-care.

All the latest releases from 1995 – thanks to Covid.

7️⃣ I am infinitely grateful for the 33 days Carrie and I spent in a transformation retreat in the Amazon Jungle because the lessons I learned there are with me every day of my life.

Meditating in the jungle during a retreat with the Paititi Institute – read the whole story here.

8️⃣ I am infinitely grateful for my Friday night zoom/phone app poker game with my San Francisco buddies because it’s the only “hanging out” I get to do these days.

The night I became the most winningest player in the brief history of our online Hold’Em game.

9️⃣ I am infinitely grateful for the coziness of our home because it’s windy AF out there today!!!

🔟 I am infinitely grateful for my new FB group called Daditude – a Gratitude Group for Dads because I want a place for fellow dads to be able to share their gratitude without fear of being made fun of by friends/family who are not operating at the same vibrational level.


The practice is a part of Rhonda Byrne’s “The Magic,” which I am working through with my wife, Carrie.
