Happiness, photography, and gratitude

I stumbled on this inspiring video from a post at the Greater Good website (“the science of a meaningful life”). I love the idea: You take a photo a day as a way to express (and feel) your gratitude for something. I’ve often done this, without even really thinking of it that way, but I can see how turning it into an everyday practice could really change your outlook on things, as it did for Hailey Bartholomew.

    I agree–it’s so important to be grateful and to acknowledge it can be very powerful–either through photos, writing or just thinking. Can change your mood instantly.

    Hello Allan. Thanks for posting this really inspiring video. Fantastic photography, a great outlook, and pulled together with her short diary comments. This my highlight of today. In the spirit of this project, I’ll look forward for what may come tomorrow! I know that my day already improves as soon as I take a photo – it can be anything at all. And I follow Dewitt Jones who has a similar outlook to this – “Celebrate what is right with the world”
