My current "bathroom" book is My Grandfather's Blessings by Rachel Naomi Remen. Most of the chapters are 2-3 pages - perfect for a brief stay in the 'library'. In a chapter titled, Finding New Eyes, Remen suggests reviewing your day for 15 minutes every evening, asking three questions and writing down the answers. The questions: What surprised me today? What moved me or touched me today? What inspired me today?
A few summers ago I kept a "gratitude journal" where I listed three things everyday (most everyday, anyway) that I was thankful for. It turned out to be one of the best summers of my life. After reading 'Finding New Eyes' I decided I needed to get that journal going again. Maybe revise things so I write one thing I'm grateful for and then answer the three questions Remen suggests.
Remen says it's harder at first but after awhile you start watching for these things and then noticing them when they happen. I know I used to think of millions of things everyday I was grateful for and it was hard to decide which three to mention in my journal. One thing for sure, my life really did seem blissful. So you might ask, Why didn't I keep going? That's a good question!
