There are so many wonderful reasons to keep a gratitude journal.
Among them, taking back the power to praise ourselves for accomplishing the little things in our daily life and in being grateful for things that are yet to come (manifesting our hidden desires).
Yet, most gratitude journals focus on us, our plans, our goals, our achievements and our inner circle/material world.
Our, being the key word here.
What about her/him, us, they, theirs? All life on this planet is essential, down from the very basic single-celled organism to the animals that roam wild and free, all the way up to things we cannot even fathom in the cosmos and the quantum field beyond.
How often do you get the chance to express gratitude for the beautiful Earth we live on, for the outside environment that supports every one of us?
When was the last time you smiled at the moon, gave thanks to the overabundance of stars, or just sat in the forest and bathed under a canopy of swaying trees?
Or better yet, the question to ask is: what stops you from spending more meaningful time in nature?
Is it fear or misunderstanding? Lack of time, space, access to nature, or more than one of the above?

Earth Gratitude Journal FAQ’s
How does it work?
At the beginning of each month a new, downloadable journal will reach you via e-mail.
Print it out, or copy it by hand, filling in all the details with your own unique handwriting (cursive is recommended) throughout the course of a month.
You can then share some of your favorite thoughts, sketches, poems and experiences, using #earthgratitudejournal and tagging @ForestCreekMeadows on Instagram so that more people can be inspired by others who are honoring the Earth.
