Everyone was given a new blank journal. We talked about the significance of gratitude -- how it feels to be thankful, and what appreciation does to our souls, minds and bodies. Everyone turned to the first page in their journal and listed at least 10 things for which they felt grateful. Then we decorated our gratitude journals with pastels, markers and crayons, personalizing and beautifying them. Thank you Cultivate HKNY for making this series of workshops happen with residents and staff at Clinton Housing buildings in New York.
