Experiment in Merriment

2020 is hard. Like me, I bet you are fatigued. My soul-weary focus on staying sane needs a boost. I want to feel sensations of hopefulness, encouragement, and even merriment! I have been reading many Pam Grout books over the summer. They have become my soothing balm for a heavy heart when Covid-19, politics, and drama are just too much for my mental health. Pam Grout proposes this hypothesis in her book Thank & Grow Rich.

Let’s test this hypothesis:

If you devote yourself to scouting blessings, you’ll find them out the wazoo.  If you turn each day into a 24-hour miracle reconnaissance mission, you’ll call forth Truth.  You’ll get the happily ever after. 

I want to test this hypothesis in a 30 day experiment in merriment!

Please join me in the Experiment from August 23 – September 21.

The Experiment

To test the hypothesis, we will do (and track) two things every single day, for 30 days in a row:
  1. Every morning, using creative language, proclaim that something amazing is going to happen today.  
  2. Find and name 3 blessings every single day.

Ways to participate:

  • On your own privately in a notebook or journal
  • Online via your favorite social media platform #Experiment in Merriment #Pam Grout
  • In an online community group which also includes optional weekly zoom calls and weekly prompts to do the activities in the book! Keep reading for more info!

Party Games!!!

Pam’s book contains activities she calls “Party Games.”

In the online community group, we will play games several per week.  A few titles to entice you:

  • Become a Luck Magnet
  • The Opposite Game
  • Impersonate Wonder Woman
