Writing from the heart

I write a lot - I write all day in my job as a communications manager. I write this blog, guest columns and 52 crafts in 52 weeks. I write tweets and Facebook updates.

I always try to be true to my heart and personality when I write (well at work I have to write according to the corporate personality) but I don't very often write my most innermost thoughts and experiences. For that, I have my journal.

I go through phases of writing in it. I do it when I feel I need to get a multitude of thoughts and worries out of my head. So for that reason I often write just before bed and just lately I've added a new section: today I'm grateful for...

Every day I jot down a few things that I'm grateful for on that day. It helps me reflect on the day and remember that even if I've had a bad day and there have been tears, there were good things too.

I don't intend to share all of those thoughts with you but I thought I could share a few of my gratitudes on an occassional basis. I'd love to know what you're grateful for today too - let me know in the comments. x

That the morning was nice enough to put the boys outside or I may have gone mad with cabin fever. . .
Does that count. . .

Today I am grateful for the Easter Holidays that gave me the chance to watch my lad play with his boomerang in the local park. Also grateful that although it landed near, it didn't actually hit me :)

I have been meaning to comment on this for ages! I love the idea of jotting down a few things everyday - makes it much more acheiveable. I need to start doing the same to help with my Wonderful Week blogposts. Oh and I was also a Comms Manager! Lx
