Following in a vein that I LOVE! Gratitude and thankfulness. I need to be reminded on a regular (daily) biases to be thankful for all that I have. It keeps my focus on what I have and not what I dont have.
Getting up at 5 am means I have a job to go to.
Student loan bill means I have an education to use and grow from
Cleaning out the fridge means I have food
Doing laundry means I have clothes to wear
Its a simple game of re-framing but it works and it keeps me positive and THANKFUL

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.” (taken from Brainy Quotes)
Maybe it is the smell of Fall in the air or the fact the pumpkin spice everything is starting to make an appearance, but I have gratitude and thankfulness on my brain. Thanksgiving IS one of my favorite holidays but I try and carry an attitude of gratitude with me throughout the year.
In January I started keeping a gratitude journal both virtually and in paper. Every morning I write 10 things I am grateful for in my journal and I make an effort to post on social media a few days a week what I am grateful for-Yesterday it was the rain we got!
I find being grateful opens the doors for more blessings to come my way, If I recognize what I do have and am thankful for it more will be attracted to me!
I want to host a gratitude challenge. 100 days of gratitude starting tomorrow September 17th. You can journal it, post it on social media (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter etc) or any other way that speaks to you!
Lets share with each other and keep each other motivated to keep going. As we all know some-days it can be REALLY hard to be grateful about anything!
Looking forward to hearing about what you are thankful for!
