What would you put in a gratitude journal when nothing good happens?

I've been busy with work, school and internships so i havent had much time for anything else. Sure im grateful for a job, car, house etc but what else is there when days are so monotonous for the aforementioned reasons.

I’m grateful I can see and take in all the wondrous sights around me.

I’m grateful I can hear the voices of loved ones, children laughing, birds chirping.

I’m grateful my body is strong and healthy, that it allows me to do what I need to do to live a better life.

[@638129,LyricalOne] because my purpose of wanting to do one is to be more aware of what i have to be grateful for. But if i continuously write the same thing...

[@467302,iamnikki] Okay, whatever.

[@638129,LyricalOne] why are you "whatevering" me? I appreciate and agree with this answer and your others.

I guess I'd put that I'm grateful it was a peaceful and low-stress day.

You do have days when you can handle it though. [@467302,iamnikki]

[@674612,Muted] yea im handling it now
Very stressful. Feel like you cant rest.
I always write about small things. Like how relaxing a shower was, or how good some food was, or if the weather was nice.
Food, health, friends, music, It can be anything simply that u enjoy.

I think part of gratitude /mindfulness training is getting you to see through the mundane to what is truly exceptional

An example is the organising of a musical prodigy to busk at a busy station

People didn't see/hear him

They were in top much of a rush

What are you missing?

You can ask a person that just got out of prison...or you can just thank for things you dont have like aIDS, TB etc etc
