Gratitude journal
three good things

Jul 4, 2019

I’m a recognised writer!

Earlier in the week I submitted two articles to Medium, the online journal. I was delighted to learn subsequently that both had been judged worthy of being recommended to readers interested in money, and from now on would be distributed via Medium’s paywall, meaning the articles are considered to be of a high enough quality for members to be charged to read, which is gratifying.

Then today I was contacted by the editor of StartUp, a Medium publication, asking me to publish one of the articles, Money as the Mirror of the Soul, in StartUp and to be a contributory writer for the publication. An honour indeed.

I’m also truly grateful to everyone who has started to follow me and award me claps on Medium.

Kind and practical people

In the endless fight against bureaucracy and red tape to get one of our disabled pilgrims on the coach back from Stansted after Lourdes, its been a pleasure to find people willing to cut to the quick and give a firm and positive decision. Its also been a real pleasure to find people willing to step up to the plate and help in a practical and compassionate way. Thanks to all involved.

Grateful to have clients so enthusiastic, trusting and willing to learn and explore as the couple for whom I ran a Mapmaker Online yesterday evening. They had very different attitudes to –  and relationships with – money, leading at times to difficult conversations. I am grateful they handled the call with maturity and courage.

A Gratitude Journal is just a simple way of
recording and appreciating the good things in life.

Research shows that keeping a gratitude journal leads to
higher levels of alertness, happiness and positive emotions as well as
a stronger immune system, lower blood pressure and better sleep.
