Blue Skies…Out Comes the Sun!
Have you ever heard the saying, “Complainers are like bad breath, we only notice when it comes out of someone else’s mouth”!?
Well here’s an easy tip to start to move from complaint to gratitude: Go out and buy yourself a journal ~ one that makes you feel good just to look at it. Perhaps name it your ‘Gratitude Log’ or another name you like. Kids especially may want to personalize it or decorate it.
Choose a current moment or memory in which you feel/felt joyous and grateful…and write about it. A few words or a few pages, whatever feels good. Now every time you open the book you will see that note and experience some of that joy and gratitude.
You may wish to write in your journal only when feeling thankful, and later reading it to uplift yourself OR you may choose to write in it daily, no matter your mood, to reach for a sense of gratitude and step-by-step improve your overall outlook in key areas of your life (i.e. career, relationships, health). The choice is yours. Most likely your journal will become quite special to you and carry a lovely vibration!
