THE QUALITY OF BEING THANKFUL; READINESS TO SHOW APPRECIATION FOR AND RETURN KINDNESS. -Google
As adults, it is so easy to forget to stop and be appreciative and thankful because we tend to get caught up in the day to day art of survival. It is often not until we experience times like this (coronavirus epidemic) that we take inventory of all that we should be so very thankful for.
I firmly believe there are no guarantees in life. I believe taking things for granted means, I am not grateful. I believe failure to show gratitude closes me to bigger and better opportunities to evolve as a human being. As such, each day I roll out of bed I take a few seconds just to say thank you and recognize all that I have to be grateful for. I also encourage my daughters to express gratitude on a regular basis.
So, let’s practice some gratitude together! If you want to do it the way I do it, pump up Kehlani’s Thank You, and write down at least 3-5 things you are thankful for.
Here is my list for today:
A home that allows me to comfortably practice social distancing
THE GIFT OF DRIVE
The gift of curiosity
The gift of compassion
A supportive mother
The ability to provide food for my daughter
THE GIFT OF DETERMINATION
From this point forward take a moment each day to stop and express gratitude for at least one thing in your life. Saying thank you goes a long way!
