It's October 31 and you know what that means....

Starting tomorrow our Facebook and Instagram feeds are going to be full of those "I'm Thankful for _____" posts.

There is NOTHING wrong with those posts (I did the "Thankful" thing on Facebook a year or so ago), but I propose something different this year. Something a bit more personal. Join me in doing the following 30-Day Gratitude Challenge!

Using one of the prompts below, write a note to someone you'd like to thank for their influence in your life. For example, under "LOVE," you could thank a significant other or spouse. Or maybe a child, parent or someone else special in your life who taught you about love.
  1. Love
  2. Nature
  3. Sight
  4. Hobby
  5. Work
  6. Family
  7. Friendship
  8. Fear
  9. Book
  10. Faith
  11. Change
  12. Quiet
  13. Food
  14. Noise
  15. Smell
  16. Color
  17. Music
  18. Laughter
  19. Smile
  20. Hope
  21. Accomplishment
  22. Passionate
  23. Purpose
  24. Intention
  25. Mentor
  26. Movement
  27. Stillness
  28. Kindness
  29. Letting Go
  30. Inspiration

There are really no rules to this challenge. There is no right or wrong way to do it. This challenge is all about reflection and thankfulness - whatever that means to you.

Personally, I plan to handwrite and mail as many notes as possible. But that may not always be feasibly...enter email or Facebook messenger. I don't think the method of delivery matters so much, just the content.

Side-note - this would be a perfect time to use this new, app I stumbled upon: Felt. You can create cards with handwritten notes in them and mail...all in one application. I love it.

Let's make someone's day brighter this November. This world could use a little more gratitude.
