Almost every day, I try to write down 10 things in my journal that I am grateful for. This is what I’ve learned so far:
- It’s disappointing how hard it is to come up with 10 things
Some days just feel like ordinary days or they feel like everything sucks. On those days, I find myself struggling to complete the list – but I always do.
- The little things are what count
On a daily basis, big things don’t always happen. We can’t discredit the little things.
- Loved ones are a reoccurring theme.
I almost always mention my loved ones in a list – they’re always worth appreciating.
- Gratitude doesn’t come easy.
We are selfish beings, it’s hard to stop and remind ourselves that we wouldn’t be where we are without certain people or experiences.
- A journal can change your life.
Just a little reminder everyday that every day is worth living is very key to being happy and to being successful.
Have you started a gratitude journal? It has done nothing but help me – you should give it a shot! 🙂
