100 Things that I Love

I often listen to podcasts on my iphone when I clean. It helps to make a boring job more fun.

A few days ago, I was listening to “The Women’s Transformation” by Kimberly Wilborn (you can find it on itunes) and she said to feel more grateful and to attract more good things in her life, she made a list of 100 things that she loved. It helps her dwell on the good things in her life instead of the bad.

I love that idea! I have often kept a gratitude journal where I list 5 things I am grateful for before going to bed. This has been one of the best ways I have been able to change my disposition from Negative Nellie to Positive Polly over the years.

So I decided to list my 100 things that I love. It may be boring for y’all to read all 100 but it may help you to think about your making own list of 100 things. Then when you are feeling down, read over your list for an instant mood boost!

It took me weeks to come up with this list. When I would think of something, I’d jot a note down in my phone for later. The last 30 things were tough to come up with.

I don’t know if Kimberly added people to her list. After all, they aren’t things. But I’m adding them to my list.
