It’s November Again!
Last year, I took the month of November and did a #30dayofgrateful challenge. Many people do this during November and though I’ve done small things with the kids throughout the month, I’ve never really taken the time evaluate why I am grateful. That sounds terrible… of course I think about the things I am grateful for but not always the WHYS. So, in 2021… I did just that.
I wrote up some prompts, made a calendar, and each day I sat and gave the prompt some thought. Some days were easy but other days took quite a bit of time. I posted it as I went on the blog, made the calendar printable for everyone, posted on socials, and I had thoughts of grandeur that people would join in… and maybe they did, but they didn’t share. This is of course fine, but I realized how exposed and vulnerable I felt… however, at the end of the day, I was doing this for ME and I really loved the journey I took.
This year, I made another calendar for 2022, though the prompts are the same as last year… BUT this year, I also made a list of grateful prompts! This way people can use it how they would like! Though this started as a 30 day, daily challenge for me, there is nothing wrong with using the prompt list at dinner with the family. How fun would it be to have a Thankful Thursday every Thursday in November!
So, however you celebrate this month… even if being Thankful in November isn’t a custom or you feel pretty thankful year-round, grab your #30daysofgrateful list or grab your November dated calendar… or both and enjoy November!
Head over to Instagram or Facebook and share what you are grateful for or tag me @bemandfam… feel free to leave a comment too! Also, check out my 30 Days of Grateful post from last year!
I plan on doing this challenge again, with NEW prompts next year, but the journey I took last year was amazing. I didn’t post much about each prompt, but I did spend so much time thinking about the things I am grateful for… it changed me a bit and I got to really know me better!
For all things fall or Autumn, check out my Fall Season page… there’s some recipes, crafts, and other fun stuff.
I hope you have a fantastic November and a great journey on your 30 Days of Grateful!
