We forget how truly blessed we are and should be grateful. Even when things aren’t going well we forget to be grateful. To be thankful should be treated as an important part of the day because appreciation contributes to our happiness. When you are grateful, it helps you to be more positive, receptive, optimistic, hopeful, peaceful, and grounded, especially during trying situations.
When times are tough, or if you are in the midst of chaos, or emotional mayhem, taking a moment to SHOW your appreciation will create a sense of encouragement and calm when you need it most. When acknowledging the people and things in your life that were helpful or appreciated, it can put things back in perspective again and help you focus.
It is good to write things down before going to bed, creating a graceful ending to the day. Using all these techniques will really help you to focus on your blessings, even in the midst of challenges.
DIARIZING: When you write things down, as opposed to just thinking about them, you are truly taking in each and every one. You aren’t just aware of them, you are acknowledging them. You are remembering the positives of your day and in your life. You are focusing on a moment in time that you truly appreciated and you are allowing it to sink into your heart and soul.
FEEL GOOD: When things are going great, and you are feeling on top of the world, don’t forget to appreciate all that you have and all that you are. In a blink of an eye, things can change and you don’t want to forget to truly be thankful for your BLESSED life.
