Hello, Kids and All Readers,
Continuing last week’s blog about Viktor Frankl and his practice of “Self-Transcendence,” (moving from the Self to the Other), I’d like to share this fun and potentially meaningful game with you.
It’s a Gratitude Scavenger Hunt! For me, one way to shut down the pity party and focus on my blessings is to become aware of what I’m grateful for. Try this game to help yourself do the same.
GRATITUDE SCAVENGER HUNT
1. Find something that makes you smile really big.
2. Find someone you can give something to that will make them smile really big.
3. Find one thing you love to smell, and sit with it for 2 or 3 minutes while acknowledging your gratefulness for your sense of smell.
4. Find something that’s your favorite color and sit looking at it for 2 or 3 minutes while acknowledging your gratefulness for your sense of sight.
5. Find something you like to snack on, and while munching on it, acknowledge your gratefulness for your sense of taste.
6. Find something you like to touch, like a soft pillow, a warm blanket, or even your cat or dog, and acknowledge your gratefulness for your sense of touch.
7. Find something in nature, and acknowledge how grateful you are for this awesome place we call home.
8. Make up your own Gratitude Scavenger Hunt list and share with someone else.
So, get a clue, Readers. May you have a meaningful holiday season this year having found some of your greatest blessings.
