I feel as though I know so many of you, even though I have only met some of you.
On this page you have allowed me an outlet to share the moments of my life, big and small.
I started the page as “Alicia’s 365 Moments of Gratitude Project” when I embarked on taking a photograph a day of something in which I was thankful for.
The project was fun, and as someone who does not always finish what I start, I felt it was a huge accomplishment for me.
I spent hours printing out each photograph and the story behind it to put in my own folder to keep.
It has been a while since I have looked back on the project, but I feel happy to know that it is there, a permanent reminder of a wonderful 365 days of my life.
It has been over a year since the project was completed, and it has been a huge year at that.
I attempted to change the name of my Facebook page to just “Alicia’s Little Moments” (like this blog), but was unable to.
So the gratitude reminder lived on.
Lately I have received some beautiful messages from lovely people commenting on how much they enjoyed the project, on reading the stories that went with the photos I was grateful for.
I feel so happy reading these messages, and thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support.
You see, it has been a very tough year since that project ended, and it was always so nice to look back in my darkest days and remind myself of all the beautiful things in life.
I have continued to be grateful, in fact on being diagnosed with depression and anxiety, my doctor recommended I keep a diary of things that make me happy, so in healing I kind of continued my own project privately.
I am ready to come back, though in being honest, I really do not have the personal time any more to take and edit photos every day, with a new business, time is very short at the moment.
So I have a request.
Lets bring back the project, but I need you to help me please.
Last time I invited readers to submit their photos and stories, which you did, but this time I need to share the job more so.
If you have a photo or a story of something you are grateful for, this is an open invitation to share it on my Facebook page . For this to work I need you to join in with me please.
It does not have to be every day, just post something when the feeling arises, when you feel grateful for something, big and small.
You see, you all will never know how much your support and comments helped me over the years, now lets look at the beautiful things in live together.
The project is back, but this time it is not “Alicia’s project”, it is “Everyone’s project”
I look forward to sharing it with you!
