There are both positive & negative side to all life events. Life is full of ups & downs, but even the hard times have the potential to be good. Perspective is everything & there is always something to be grateful for.
Gratitude is something everyone can practice regardless of all our differences between us. It doesn’t matter where you live or what you do, you can practice gratitude because it’s how we, as individuals choose to see the world.
There are days where thinking about what you’re grateful for comes easy & you have that ‘ah moment’ where you count your blessings. But on a bad day, it can be so much tougher & it can be hard to think of all the positive. To no surprise, that’s when we need to practice gratitude the most.
There are lots of ways to practice gratitude & I’ve head & tried many. From gratitude jars, gratitude journals & motivation affirmations. At the end of the day it doesn’t matter how you practice gratitude - just that as long as you do. Making sure you’re grateful & thankful isn’t just for a nice sentiment but it’s actually proven to increase joy & transform our lives. Still, if you’re not use to having gratitude in your life, there are a few ways to start injection it into each & every moment.
- Gratitude journals are a great way to express thanks for even the smallest of things.
- A small prayer of thanks is also another great way to show that you’re thankful & then you are able to go about your day.
Those are just a couple of ideas but there are so many, it’s just about being creative & finding what works for you.
