24 Nov 90 Days of Gratitude by Elana Clark-Faler, LCSW, CST, CSAT-S
I challenge all of you to 90 days of gratitude. It’s simple. You simply write 10 items you are grateful for each day before you go to bed or when you wake-up each day. Keep a journal by your bed, ready with a pen. Make it a practice like brushing and flossing your teeth each day.
Practicing gratitude helps you feel lighter and joy-filled most of the day. You begin to focus on the true things that matter in life. We live a life full of busyness. Your mind never shuts off. Training your mind to be grateful allows you to see the world in a different way, more expansively. You begin to respect and honor others, even when they are grouching and difficult. You see that others have their focus on issues that may have little relevance. While you are seeing the relevance in the simple things of life, such as water, air, and birds chirping.
Gratitude supports your recovery, and assists with keeping intimacy strong between you and others. You begin to see the things that really matter in life, and how we are all connected. Gratitude allows you to practice spiritual principals, and you see more than yourself or your own worries. Most humans are walking around worried about their own lives. We walk in fear and overwhelm. Gratitude allows you to focus on the moment and reflect on the things that work in your life. You get to see that you are truly a lovable and important manifestation on this planet.
Take this challenge today and see your life change.
