The Habit of Gratitude

FORMING THE HABIT OF GRATITUDE

When we stop to count our blessings here at The Bridge - we count YOU at the top of our list! And so we thought we would kick off 2023 by making a habit of writing down... every day... something or someone that we are grateful for. And we’re inviting you to join us!

You can use a notebook or journal, or you could do what our Bridge staff did and make your own GRATITUDE JAR. January is the perfect month to start a good habit and our Bridge Gratitude Jar can help you. Make one for your family... or if you have kids... let them make their own... and encourage them to write down something they are thankful for each day.

Sometimes the idea of crafting or starting a new project can be intimidating. We wanted to show you just how simple and fun it can be to create your very own Gratitude Jar. Check out this video to see our Bridge Staff in action. Maybe you'll be inspired with some ways to decorate your own jar!
