Thankful


Last year, I issued a "Gratitude Challenge" to myself: I'd take one photo every day of something for which I was grateful and post it to my Instagram account (which would serve as a photo journal).


The goal was to force me to be more aware of all the positive things in my life; to recognize and acknowledge something every day.


When I began, I thought I might end up with 365 photos of my wife and children. But when you go actively looking for the good things around you, it's amazing what you can find.


I didn't continue with the gratitude challenge in 2020, but in hindsight, it would have been a great idea.


Today is Canadian Thanksgiving, though, so it's as good a time as any to take a moment and think about all the things for which I'm thankful. I might even take a photo.


I hope you'll do the same.
