  1. Roll the Gratitude Starters Dice [Example: Rolled “3” & “M”]
  2. Recognize the Good. Identify “3” Sparks that begin with the letter “M”. [Example: Mom, Music, Making dinner.]
  3. Reflect on WHY. Take time to examine the reason you are grateful for the Sparks you identified. 

*Try to be grateful for the things that challenge you in your daily life. Say I GET to vs. I HAVE to. How does that feel?

If you roll a “Spark” emblem you are a Gratitude Starter!
Connect with someone (visit, call, text, email) and let them know WHY they are a Spark for you. Ask them to reach out to someone and express their gratitude and start a Gratitude Cycle. 

As you play, if you express gratitude for someone in your life, tell them!
