This week I’m grateful for… being grateful x 200

Today marks an amazing 201 things that I’ve been grateful for since I started this grateful thingy on my blog. I posted my first 100 things a while back, and today I’m celebrating the next 200. Next week I’ll post my 101 – 200 list.

Hi you. Thank you for being a part of the grateful thingy (I think that’s it’s new name…). Maybe you read along each week and visit the links, maybe you’re one of the grateful ones, maybe this your first time here and you’re wondering WTF?… whatever you’re up to, I thank you.

This week I’m grateful for…

199. Regulars – my lovely grateful regulars, you have become my friends and online community. I look forward to seeing you every week and sharing a special moment or two in your life.

200. Newcomers – I may have 200 things down on the grateful thingy list, but every week is an opportunity for someone to begin at one. Being grateful as a regular thing slows you down and makes you reflect on what’s good in the past and the present, rather than always thinking about what’s around the next corner. There is something in that. The past and present are full of memories and feelings, the future is full of maybes and perhaps.

201. Number celebrations – I have no idea why we are all so obsessed with celebrating groups of 10, 100, etc, but we are. And don’t you think it’s funny how we still celebrate our 21st when 18 has been the new 21 for over 50 years? Regardless, counting down the numbers with a celebration here and there is fine by me!

So, what’s making you smile today? Add your post to the list below (and please, we love you, but it really does matter that your post is a Grateful one and not just a random) and pretty-please add a link back to this linky. Then pop over to visit other bloggers who are spreading a little sunshine.

    I’ve missed a few weeks, but was really grateful for something this week so had to play along!

    Hopefully I will be back again next week.

    I agree, the grateful weekend helps us to pause. I like reading along, even though I don’t play too.
    My blog is nearly 1. That’s something to be grateful for. Maybe I will join in then?
    Happy weekend. x

    Happy 200 + 1-th! Definitely a good reason to celebrate I say :)

    And on behalf of everyone, I think we’re all grateful to you for the extra dash of positivity you put in our week as we think of all the good things that have happened, whether big or small.

    I am grateful for your ‘grateful thingies’. Often they have encouraged the better side of me and put a smile on my face where there would have been a nasty little scowl. All the best for your next 1oo.

    I like that you number your grateful things. I think it’s nice to be able to quantify the things that you are grateful for in your life. I wish you many MANY more grateful posts! :)

    I’m grateful for your 200 gratefuls. This is the best place to come on a Friday night / Saturday morning and just be reminded about how amazing life is. Here’s to another 200! xxx

    Hello, congrats on 200 gratefuls.. I’m grateful my kids are watching movies this rainy morning and I can surf my have blogs.

    Blogging only on travel/Sydney these days so no gratefuls to share but hopefully next year I will start a more personal, non-authory, blog and start posting again. Am enjoying the reading in the meantime.

    I always look forward to Fridays or Saturdays, when the grateful thingy is up. It is a joy to do, whether I join or just visit. Thank you for this lovely tradition, and may this tribe of grateful people multiply in the coming year.
