Video: 365 Grateful

In 2008, Hailey Bartholomew was struggling with life, even though she felt she had all that was needed in life. She still felt unhappy. Until she saw a nun who said to her that the secret to happiness is reflection and gratitude. The nun recommended that each night Hailey write down something that she was grateful for during that day. That’s when she brought herself a special album and Polaroid film enough to take photos all year long.

Quickly, Hailey started to notice things that she otherwise would have missed. The many little moments became more special. She says on her website, “Taking one photo every day of something I was grateful for really re-programmed my brain. Seeing and celebrating the good in my life affected not only the way I felt spiritually and physically but it improved my relationships with others too.”
