We are continuing this month’s discussion on gratitude.

How do we recognize what we are grateful for?

A great exercise to incorporate into your daily routine, is to keep a journal handy by our bed and list all of the things that you are grateful for that occurred that day.

The list can include big things as well as small things.

Try to write down at least 3 things that happened in your day that you are grateful for.


Another exercise you can do, is go through your journal and review the 3 things that you wrote down in your journal.  As you read each one, try to visualize them.  Often times, this little drill, will help you appreciate the things you have or did even more.

Remember, none of us our perfect.

In order to move forward in life we need to focus on what’s good in our life and let go of any negative thinking.  We call negative thinking, “Stinkin Thinkin”!

Life can be tough and a simple act of gratitude can go a long way in making a parent, a sibling, a relative, or even a friend, feel good about themselves.

Which in term, makes you feel good about yourself.
