Keeping a Gratitude Journal and Organizing your Photos


Two new bloggers joined our blog tour today. The first is Heather from The Sweet-Me Project.

Keeping a gratitude journal changed my life.  I know!  That sounds so dramatic.  But it’s the truth.  After a really rough year, I decided to make a New Year’s resolution to keep a gratitude journal.

2008 was a doozy for my little family of five.  We were self-employed in the construction business and the economy tanked.  We had to sell our home and move into a two-bedroom basement apartment because we couldn’t get any new work contracts.  My husband had to let his crew go, which we were sued for.  I was in and out of the ER with some growing health issues.  My husbands Mom passed away suddenly and very unexpectedly.  Our little basement apartment caught fire!  And my husband cut his arm with a chop saw, which made him unable to do what little work he could get, for almost two months.

We live in a world of over documentation. But is that a bad thing? At a click of a button, moments in life are documented.

Our cell phones take pictures, videos, text messages and everything in between and they are at our fingertips.

It is so easy to get overwhelmed with everything that is saved onto our devices. January 1st, I got a head start and cleaned out and backed up my files which automatically backed up to Google Drive. And then I deleted over 2,000 pictures. Of those 2000 pictures 2000
of them came from my phone. Those pictures were screenshots, videos, screenshots, my kids’ funny text messages that I want to store. those 2000+ shots were from a total of 9 days. I know… I have a problem 🙂
