Simple Way #11
A couple months ago, I was walking down the hallway only to hear my son sweetly singing from his bed, “Count Your Blessings, Name Them One By One . . .” It had been somewhat of a difficult and exhausting day, but that little voice gently reminded me to think of the blessings over the challenges, to choose to focus on the positives instead of the negatives . . . and to keep a thankful perspective.
It really is amazing how developing a perspective of gratitude can make you delight in even the smallest blessings of life. So today, we are writing a Gratitude List. Keep it where you’ll see it often. Add to it. Journal about it. Be intentional and purposeful with it.
Here are Ten Starter Thoughts for your Gratitude List:
The people that love and care for me ____________________________.
The greatest blessings of my life are ____________________________.
Basic needs that are provided to me ____________________________.
The big things in my life that I am grateful for are ____________________________.
The little things in life that I am grateful for are ____________________________.
Today, I am happy about ____________________________.
The simple things I love ____________________________.
The journeys that make me stronger are ____________________________.
The silly things I love ____________________________.
Something nice a person did for me recently ____________________________.
