Gratitude Art

I really set out this month to do the whole “Thankful Thirty” prompt, writing on things I’m grateful for daily. But I’m just not accustomed to the intimate narrative style of sharing in blogging yet.  The years that I’ve been working online have been journalistically.  Ha, well–  that is,  at least focused on topics that weren’t me and my life– copy writing, content creation, articles, etc. But I wanted to participate. I have so much minutia that I marvel at each day in this wondrous world,  and I feel like people take those small details for granted. So, as a tip of the hat to the concept of expressing gratitude, without the tedium of thirty posts  for my lazy ass to write or you poor folks to pour through, I designed this little piece in Photoshop yesterday instead. Remember that if you’ve got the resources to be reading this, you have the world at your fingertips to change, enhance, learn from, and reach out to– and that alone means you have a truly remarkable existence.  Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving 2012

  1. I’m genuinely impressed by this. It’s thoughtful, clever, endearing, and extremely well put together. I’m really glad that you’ve decided to at least partially embrace the concept of putting more of yourself out there in your writing, and this graphic is wonderful start. It served as a great reminder for me, whom as we know can get overwhelmed by “everything”, to be appreciative of the little things, not take them for granted, and to remember, not dwell, this little journey we’re all on called life, as well as the folks who are apart of it with us. Happy Thanksgiving pal!

  2. So I had written out a reply to this and then I was forced to log in to post it and blah blah blah, long story short, the insatiable beast that is WordPress devoured it. So I’ll attempt to reconstruct it as best I can. Okay, here goes.

    I’m genuinely impressed by this graphic. It’s extremely well made, well written, endearing, and well thought out. I’m really glad to see that you’ve decided to embrace the idea of being more open in your posts and putting more “you” into your writing. I know that it’s a huge step for you and this was a fantastic way to begin to make that transition and become more comfortable with this type of writing. I will also say that your graphic serves as a really great reminder as to what’s truly important in life. A lot of people, and I’m guilty of this as well due to getting overwhelmed and feeling lost (a fact you already know all too well), forget about what’s truly important in life and allow themselves to look past the little things, events, and people that are truly important and make one’s life worthwhile. Truly well done. Happy Thanksgiving pal!
