Do you know how to be thankful?
Perhaps you’ve been taking life for granted lately. Too caught up with work, or health issues, or something else?
I urge you to stop and take a look at the world around you…you may begin to see things a little differently.
Today’s challenge is to be thankful!
Here are 3 ways you can be more thankful today:
#1 Create a gratitude ritual
Every day take a couple of minutes to be thankful for your family and friends, your health, your achievements, and simply for the day itself.
#2 Be thankful for the negative things
I know this is difficult, but a positive attitude will help you overcome so much. In difficult times you learn patience, understanding, strength, humility, love, and the importance of life itself…but you must be willing to learn these things!
Kahlil Gibran said:
“Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens.”
#3 Say thank you to someone
Can you spare a few moments to write a thank you card to someone kind in your life?
Also, in everyday life try to be kind and courteous to those around you – your kind words could make all the difference in someones life today.
