  1. Great post Sulekha…such things help you take time to actually notice the positives, huh? Like I mentioned to Shailaja, I did the 100 Happy Days challenge and it was great because on days I didn’t feel great, I still forced myself to look for something to be grateful about.

  2. Lovely list. So many wonderful things to be grateful for. and thank so much for tagging me. How interesting to do a crystal healing. Would love to hear about it in a post 🙂
