Here are my Top 5 tips for your gratitude journal


A beautiful notebook.

I love stationary and any excuse to find a new notebook. I was gifted a lovely book from India. G for gratitude. Perfect.


The right pen.

When writing by hand, the perfect pen is important. I do love a hotel pen, the Madonna Hotel pen writes like a dream, black ink incased in bright pink. Check out my Top 5 places to go LA - San Fran road trip. A must visit on your trip.


Write your top 5 gratitude, thanks with feeling. I love saying thanks, especially when getting in a grump about something. Twitching your thoughts to thanks brings you to a positive state of mind. Writing down your gratitude cements your thoughts and helps you focus on goodness.

Take 5 minutes and write your top 5 thanks for the day.

1.Thank you for the sunshine and the wonder of vitamin D.

2.Thank you for the energy to run 7km and receive fireworks on my fit bit for 10,000 steps by 11am.

3.Thank you for an hour of Caz Time to relax and re energise.

4.Thank you for my new notebook and the ability to find the Madonna pen, by being so organised I was able to locate it in one of my two pen draws.

5.Thank you for my family, bringing me everything I need; love, time and space.
