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!
