Gratitude as a Way of Life

Many of us wonder, how can we make gratitude not just be something that we do once in awhile or when it feels good.  But how can we truly make gratitude become a way of life?  How can being grateful be something that we are, not just something that we strive to be?

Introducing Paul Taubman II

This month’s case study is Paul Taubman II, otherwise known as the gratitude guru.  Paul chooses each day to make gratitude a way of life for him.  He started blogging about gratitude as a way to express it being part of who he is.  Paul’s blog, is read by thousands every day from around the world.  He encourages us to make gratitude part of our daily life through his blog entries and daily gratitude bursts of inspiration.

We were introduced to Paul early in the Project GratOtude challenge, when he heard about our gratitude challenge.  Right away he expressed his support and interest by joining our Dream Team.  We are so grateful to have such a good living example of gratitude on our team too.

Take a look at his blog and sign up for his daily inspirations, similar to ours.  You can never get enough reminders to be grateful.  Read his blog for inspiring stories, videos and resources.  One of my favorites is when he shares with us that he agrees to donate bone marrow to a complete stranger called Gratitude for a Video Blog.
