Coil Gratitude Challenge

We are living in dark times. It’s been a rough year so far, more so than many of us anticipated. Covid, riots, and stay-at-home orders are a few of the concerns we have lost sleep over. If I had to sum it up in a single word, I would choose PANIC.

The key to not only survive, but to thrive, is to not get swept away in the news and the negativity. Instead, it is important to replace fear, anxiety and anger with gratitude. If you pay attention to any news at all, pay attention to this helpful fact... you can control the way you feel regardless of yours or other's circumstances.

Gratitude is one of the most powerful forces in the universe and has the potential to dramatically shift people's mindset away from doom and gloom and point it towards joy and happiness. It is for that reason that I would like to instate a challenge for Coil bloggers.

The Coil Gratitude Challenge


If you have been active inside the Coil community for some time, you will be quite familiar with challenges as there have been others over the past months. Just started on Coil? Welcome, friend, to the future of blogging and Web Monetization.

♖ The Rules ♖

① Once per week, tell us at least 1 story about a fond memory from your past that you can be grateful for.

② Written posts must be a minimum of 500 words and published on or your own Web-Monetized blog.

③ Videos must be at least 3 minutes long and posted to Cinnamon.

④ Use hashtag #coilgratitudechallenge when linking on Twitter.

The challenge will begin Sunday, June 7th, 2020 and run through June 30th. By the end, you should have published 4 or more gratitude stories.

The Rewards

Those who complete the challenge will be...

① Included inside of a personalized recognition article written by myself.

② Awarded 20 XRP to your XUMM account. If you don't have an account already, 20 XRP will be enough to get one started.

What can you be grateful for today? I want this challenge to ignite your mind and your heart to recognize the things that you can be grateful for in your life. When gratitude is the focus, your emotional well-being is not only preserved, but also strengthened and refreshed.

Will being grateful change the state that the world is in right now? No, probably not. But, being grateful will change how you feel which in turn will have a positive effect on others around you. Gratitude is contagious and meant to be spread amongst those you care about. ✦
