Attitude of Gratitude
But, it’s not easy for most of us. And, as you know in life, it’s the things that are not easy that leave the most impact.
- Journal about three new things you’re grateful for.
- Journal about one positive experience you’ve had over the last twenty-four hours.
- Exercise thirty minutes each day.
- Meditate ten minutes each day.
- Send one positive email each day to someone in your social support network or do some other random act of kindness.
I’m going to write about one of these steps in this post:
Journal about three new things you’re grateful for.
Why is this a good idea? Here’s my take on it:
- Having an “attitude of gratitude” will help you reframe your situations, no matter how negative, into a new light.
- Your goal with being thankful is to twist your current perspective, perhaps negative, into one that gives us great insight.
- Recognizing what you are grateful for, even the littlest of things, helps further the healing process through rough times in life.
I find that for me, in order to stick with something, I need to be held accountable. I often use this blog as a way to do that! Thats why, for the next three weeks, I’m going to Tweet 3 things, no matter how small or silly, that I am grateful for every day from my personal Twitter account, @jennysuedempsey. I’ll begin today and end it on August 5th. I’ll use the hashtag #AttitudeOfGratitude.
You should join me in the gratitude adventure!
