I typed quickly but not quickly enough. I hope you have better luck than me typing 50 in 10 minutes.


If you’d like to join in, here’s how it works: set a timer for 10 minutes; timing this is critical. Once you start the timer, start your list. The goal is to write 50 things that made you happy in 2015, or 50 thing that you feel grateful for. The idea is to not think too hard; write what comes to mind in the time allotted. When the timer’s done, stop writing. If you haven’t written 50 things, that’s ok. If you have more than 50 things and still have time, keep writing; you can’t feel too happy or too grateful!

To join the bloggers who have come together for this project: 1) Write your post and publish it (please copy and paste the instructions from this post, into yours) 2) Click on Dawn Landau’s name at the bottom of this post. 3) That will take you to another window, where you can past the URL to your post. 4) Follow the prompts, and your post will be added to the Blog Party List.

Please note that only blog posts that include a list of 50 (or an attempt to write 50) things that made you feel Happy or 50 things that you are Grateful for, will be included. Please don’t add a link to a post that isn’t part of this exercise.

  1. Thanks so much for joining my Gratitude blog party. I know it’s hard to do 50 in 10 minutes, but your list is full of wonderful things!. I explained a few things on my post, re: timing, but in nutshell, the 50 isn’t critical… it’s focusing on gratitude and the timing. And most of us probably went over. I cop to 12 minutes, which is what it took me, without photos/links, etc. 😉 I love your photos and the wonderful adventures that your list demonstrates, as well as loved ones. In reading all of the other lists, it’s hard not to want to edit my own! It’s just wonderful tuning in to all this good stuff; it’s contagious! Here’s the link to mine, if your readers want to learn more. Your link for my name takes me back to the list… but there’s more detail on my post. http://bit.ly/1O32bwC (hope you don’t mind; I generally don’t leave my link on other blogs) Again, thanks for contributing!
