At the beginning of this year I wrote about my plan to keep a diary of thankful things and how to make gratitude diarys more effective. Six months in it feels like a good time to reflect on these diaries. I’m pleased to say that all three of us are still using the diaries each day and they are very much part of our routine. I’m hopeful that Rowan will soon be able to tell us what he enjoyed each day and that will help me to plan more fun days for him.
Am I happier now? Yes I am much happier and I feel more in control of my life. Of course I don’t know how much to put down to the diaries and how much is simply due to getting more sleep as Rowan grows up!
I intend to carry on the diaries, if nothing else it makes Christmas shopping easier!
