Gratitude Party

Posted by terrepruitt on May 9, 2009

Everyone is talking about Twitter.  I will say I just recently joined the masses, but I have been on long enough to have participated a few times in the once a month #Gratitude party.  Once a month on the second Sunday of the month LaSara Firefox host an online Twitter “party” where for an hour you tweet things you are grateful for.  I am sure there are some that think this is odd and maybe some even think it is stupid, but I really love it.  It gives me the opportunity to release some of the joy that is always built up in my heart.  I have so many things to be grateful for and it is so wonderful to have a place to just say them out loud where no one is judging.  Since everyone there is just sharing, it is not ever taken as if someone is bragging.  It is just really great.

Some people have heart wrenching stories that they share and they end with a grateful note.  Some people have huge accomplishments that they share.  Some people have little triumphs.  But all are received with open arms.  We lend our hands, we give our shoulders, then we cheer.  It is really amazing that all of this happens on line in tweets.  Then with all of the sharing and everything going on, we can meet new people.  I know that I walk away feeling great, and I think others do too.  I feel great because I was allowed to let people know that I know what I have is amazing and that I am grateful.  I feel great because I hear how others might have had a bad experience but they triumphed through it.  I feel great because I was able to cheer someone who accomplished something.  And I feel great because I was able to connect with all of these people.  It is awesome.

I have met people from San Jose, Istanbul, New York, Los Gatos, Canada, Trieste, all over all .  And I blog about it, in something longer than a tweet, to express my gratitude to LaSara Firefox (yoga_mama) for doing this every month, and so that you can learn about it and participate, if you would like.

This month it is May 10, 2009 at 4:30 pm PST.

Just type #gratitude in your tweet to join.  I can’t wait to see you there.*

I don’t know if gratitude parties are still a thing, but the #gratitude link above was not long working so I tried the # in Twitter and was so happy to see there is still some gratitude going on . . . so now it is a June 02, 2020 link.

    I missed this one. Sundays are harder – I have no weekend routine. I would imagine it’s pretty cool to watch gratitude scroll by. *sighs happily.*


    • Ahh, there is always next month. Or if you feel like it people often twitter #grattitude. But at the party there are prizes. Maybe I will see you at the next one. They are the SECOND Sunday in the month.
