Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul. - Henry Ward Beecher
Recent studies have shown that people that are grateful and give thanks are happier! I can't think of a better way to better my mood.
I've been keeping a gratitude journal off and on for several months. Since Brian's accident, I haven't been as faithful about writing in it. I'm going to get it out and put it where I will see it every morning and get back in the habit of writing in it daily. I think it makes such a difference.
I am so grateful that Brian is with me today. He is my true soul mate and I love him with all my heart. I am grateful for a wonderful family and our new grandbaby, Madelyn. We are truly blessed to have such great kids. I love my job, being able to work from home and help others get healthy is more than I could ask for. I am grateful for my health, being able to work out daily and I am also so thankful for my wonderful friends, both personal and online! It's amazing to me how such great connections are made online. I can't wait to meet some of you in person :)
So, get out a notebook and start a gratitude journal today. It will make you happier and more fulfilled! I like to get a really cute notebook. I keep my food journal, my to-do list (this is a MUST if I want to get anything done in my day!!), my gratitufe journal and my call list. It's all there for me to see and go back and review.
Here's a picture of a sample journal entry for me and my cute notebook!
I'm going to start writing in mine everyday again, I hope you will too!
