I think I want to start a gratitude journal. So often we long so much for things that we don’t take the true time to appreciate what we already have. Some of the things that we have now were once things that we only prayed and dreamed of. Life definitely has its ups and downs and we are in a constant state of learning. If we can see right in front of us all of the positive things that we have going for ourselves, I feel it would help us greatly. We have so much for be thankful for, so fortunate, so blessed.
What are you grateful for today? Do you have a gratitude journal? Our very life is a gift and a blessing, it gives us a chance to learn and better ourselves every single day. Have a beautiful weekend!
Good morning! What are you excited about this week? Having something to look forward to can really bring happiness to your life.
When you are going about your day, or your week, have something that you are looking forward to. It could be something as simple as going home after a long day, a hot drink, your favorite show, the drive home from work while listening to your favorite music, or even your favorite snack. Life is full of simple pleasures and by being able to look forward to them, you can really add a lot of happiness and gratitude in your life. Have a beautiful week!
Be in the present. We get so excited thinking and planning for the future, or we get so sad that we reminisce and dwell on the past, that most of us forget the most important thing and the key to happiness, which is to live every day to its fullest and take each day of life as it comes.
Yes, we should think of past memories and yes we should plan and be happy about the future, but most importantly, take in what is around you now because life changes all the time and at any time!
Each of us is so different and unique and the views and opinions that we have about the world could be compared to night and day. Sometimes we find similarities in people and other times we can’t see eye to eye and that’s okay. We have all grown up differently and we have had different life experiences, so our views and opinions on certain things in life are going to be vastly different.
As hard as it may be, it is important to keep and open mind when trying to help others through a difficult time, even if what they are going through is not necessarily something that you and them see eye to eye about. Loved ones support each other no matter what, this doesn’t mean that you have to agree with it, but it’s important to not judge others. Only you know what’s best for you and only they know what is truly best for them.
I am a very strong-minded person and I have certain views that I don’t take lightly. I have learned to set aside my own strong feelings and views when trying to help someone who sees things the opposite as I do. I try to remove my feelings from the situation and look at how and why this person could be feeling the way they do. It’s no easy task, but an important one because when I need support from my loved ones, I’m happy when others easily support me even if they may not agree with my decisions or thoughts. Remember, you are supporting the person, not necessarily the decision the person has made etc. Wishing you a beautiful week and thank you for reading!
