When is the last time you thought of something you were grateful for? Often times we get caught up in what isn’t exactly perfect in our lives and forget to be thankful for what is going right.
Since it’s so easy to fall into that pattern, I decided to start a series of posts about gratitude. In the TED Talk I recently watched, Shawn Anchor suggests that you think of 3 things you’re grateful for each day. I usually do this when I wake up in the morning, but I want to take it a step further and share my gratitude with you all every Sunday. I would love for you to join me and tell me what you’re grateful for in the comments as well!
Showing gratitude is one of the most effective ways to reduce anxiety, depression, anger, and many more negative or “below the line” emotions.
Here are three things I’m grateful for today:
1. Eating this watermelon, banana, and strawberry fruit salad. Watermelon is one of my favorite foods and I definitely take advantage of the summertime because it is in season. This was some of the best watermelon I’ve ever had.
2. Getting to walk to dinner from where I live and see this adorable wheelbarrow with succulents in front of our neighbors place. I want to replicate it! You don’t think they’d mind, do you? 😉
3. Seeing this rainbow out of the plane window. I’ve never seen one like it. So incredible!
What are you grateful for today? I would love to hear!
