Are you grateful?

I’ve read several articles on the 30 day gratitude journey and I decided to give it a try. Often times, we focus so much on things that aren’t going right for us that we forget to be grateful for the things that are going right. We forget to be grateful for the things that we do have. Our sense of entitlement at times causes us to forget that we aren’t entitled to have a lot of things. Studies show that acts of gratitude can positively impact your quality of life. Practicing gratitude has the power to impact your views on life, your relationships with others, and your attitude.

Today is my first day of my gratitude journey and when asking myself of what I’m grateful for, I immediately think of my mom. I’m grateful for everything she has done for me. I’m grateful for every moral, value, and skill that she has instilled in me. I’m grateful to still have a mother because they are plenty of people out there without a mother. I’m grateful for her listening ear, whenever I feel the need to express myself. I’m grateful for her always being there when I need a pick me up. Even if she’s not near me, she’s always one call away. I know plenty of people who lack relationships with their parents, so I appreciate the bond I have with both of my parents.

I am going to share my gratitude journey with you guys and I hope someone is willing to join me on this journey. What are you grateful for? Here is a chart I found on another blog to assist you with your journey. If you have any other ideas, please share in the comments. I would love to hear your thoughts and feedback.


As always, stay royal Queens and Kings!





  1. Gratitude is definitely a behavior I need to practice daily. I’ve seen the power gratitude can have in my life. With that being said, I am grateful for my relationship with Christ Jesus. He continue to amaze me with His grace, mercy, and favor. He has opened doors in my life that I never thought would open. I am beyond grateful!

  2. I am grateful in so many ways, the love of Jesus, my mother/dad at the age of 75 years young to be still here with me is just awesome. I have always been GRATEFUL just to have my daughter Jasmine because she help me become an even stronger black woman. I had to make sure I did things correct so she would have a role model. She has class, morals, and is highly intelligent because that was a part of her childhood, she is a very strong black woman…. Of course, there are other people and things that I am most grateful for, my son and grandchildren that means everything to me, more than they would ever know. I could go on and on but i will stop there. Being GRATEFUL is everything to me because I am thankful for everything I have, had and will get. I Love you Jazz, ALWAYS, you will always be my QUEEN!
