Gratitude Journal

Too many times people simply complain about everything that is wrong in their life. While that may relieve some small amount of stress and possibly help brainstorm solutions, it is not the most healthy practice. Instead, take a moment to think of everything that you are grateful for in your life. It has been suggested that listing three things you are  thankful for each day increases overall peace and happiness.

 

So, here is my gratitude journal. Maybe it will encourage you to start yours or even recognize something that you are thankful for, but hadn’t acknowledged.

 

10/9/2014~  I am so very thankful for the love that I have in my life- the love that I have for myself. I am thankful for the growing relationship I am having with myself and how much kinder I am being to myself. I am thankful for doors being opened and possibilities being with in reach, if only to show me that it is possible. I am thankful for having people that I can call for advice from life choices, cooking, and doggy care. I am incredibly thankful more and more for my puppy that adores me and showers me with love. I am thankful to Yahweh for never giving up on me and being so forgiving and accepting and truly working all things for good so that I can be where I am now attaining towards spiritual perfection. Thank you so much Papa for the unending love you continue to give me no matter where I am at.
