I’ve been practicing gratitude — with varying degrees of commitment — for over 11 years now, since I was thirteen years old.
My first gratitude practice began with a “Gratitude Rock” given to me by my Dad, which was just an ordinary rock from the beach. I would carry this rock with me everyday in my pocket or bag and it would prompt me to think of something that I was grateful for.
However, it wasn’t until only several years ago when I was going through a challenging time in my life that I truly discovered how powerful practicing gratitude could be.
This Gratitude Link Fest contains all my favourite gratitude articles, guest posts and interviews — all in one place. From how I discovered the power of gratitude, to a breakdown of my gratitude history, tips for your own practices and more!
During July this year I committed to sharing behind-the-scenes insights into my gratitude practice every day for 28 days on Instagram Stories.
You’ve heard of the life-changing benefits of practicing gratitude, so you’ve decided you’re going to make gratitude a regular practice in your life.
You go and get yourself the cutest Kikki.k gratitude journal you can find and a new pen to go with it (of course!) so you’re set up and ready to commit to practicing gratitude.
I’ve been practicing gratitude — with varying levels of devotion — for over a decade now, since I was thirteen years old.
It’s now been more than 11 years since I was first introduced to this practice. And during that time I’ve experience how incredibly powerful this practice can be.
Here’s how gratitude has played a role in my life over the past decade and why I’m so passionate about sharing my experience with this simple — but life-changing — practice.
Let’s go back to how it all began…
One of my favourite ways to share what I’m grateful for is through photos over on Instagram, which is why I’d love to invite you to join me for a mini gratitude photo challenge!
On March 17th the Beautiful You Coaching Academy hosted their 2nd ever celebratory awards gala, which I was honoured to attend as a finalist.
It was such a special evening (and so special being a finalist in this year’s awards) and in this post I’ll be sharing my reflections and gratitude for this experience.
Before I get into it… A huge thank you to Fi Mims Photography who took all the incredible photos that are in this post 🙂
I’ve been practicing gratitude — with varying levels of devotion — for over a decade now.
And even though gratitude has been apart of my life since I was thirteen, it was only five years ago that I truly realised — and experienced — how very powerful practicing gratitude was.
It’s no secret that I’m a huge advocate of gratitude. I truly believe that adding more gratitude into your life — can actually change your life.
This special edition Link Fest includes a whole lot of gratitude articles from around the web. Some are from my site, some I’ve written for other sites, and some have been written by others — all of them are about gratitude.
