I know your blog and newsfeed has been bombarded with thoughts, pictures, and ideas of what it means to be “thankful.” Thanksgiving day, and this glorious weekend of limited work and lots of eating, tends to bring out those thoughts of gratitude and happiness. I am not complaining about it, as I think being on that frequency of gratitude can be so powerful. I wish people did it all year long, as opposed to one singular day of happiness.
About a year ago, I started writing in a gratitude journal, which has completely transformed my feelings about my life, as well as my current reality. (Almost) every night, I write the 3-5 things I am thankful for in this diary. This year, in particular, I can’t say enough great thing about it. It makes me sit back and realize anything and everything in my life can be powerfully positive. Bad day at work? Hey, at least I have a job? Limited money? Hey, at least I can pay all my bills easily. I think having this constant reminder of what we have every.single.day can change your life in more ways than you will ever know.
|Anyway, I just want to say today, but also remind myself all year long, that I am SO thankful. For all of this. The family, the friends, the food that adorns my table. I am so lucky.|
