“no habit is an accident” challenge: month 4 – #simplygrateful31

month 2
month 4, comin’ at cha!

So far my challenges have been to lose a bad habit, start a good one, & lose a bad habit. So for month 4, I figured I’d keep with the pattern and again, start a good one.

For this month’s challenge I’m focusing on the art of expressing gratitude. I’d say more gratitude & happiness is never a bad thing. I’m committed to making a habit of writing in a gratitude journal daily; and reflecting on the things I’m thankful for each day in May. Because ultimately, more gratitude yields more happiness. I’m calling it the #simplygrateful31. 31 days to just be simply grateful. Nothing more, nothing less.

I also got the inspiration for this because of the quite popular & trending #100happydays challenge. Some people at work are doing it and I thought about joining them, but I’ve already got this whole monthly “no habit is an accident” thing going on it. So I made it work for me! Keeping it simple & taking it one thing at a time, right? See, I’m learning!!😉

{Well, almost 1 thing at a time...side note: I’m also doing a #150bysummer fitness challenge. Long story short, you have to get in 150 miles worth of cardio over the next 8 weeks, by June 21st. For biking/spinning, divide mileage by 3, for swimming, multiply by 3, or as a rough gauge, any 10 min of intense cardio = 1 mile. I  also couldn’t be more excited that my mom is joining me! And she’s already kicking my butt! More on this, later.}

Anyways…interested in starting a habit of gratitude for this month? Join me starting today by recording/posting/journaling in whatever way you wish! I’ll be going back to using my lovely little gratitude journal and sharing various days with posts on my Instagram, Twitter and Facebook accounts using that hashtag #simplygrateful31. You can also tag me at “@kaithiltz” on Instagram or “@kaitvhiltz” on Twitter.

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.” -Melody Beattie

here’s to month 4!
