Gratitude

Yes, there is an app for that! I have one that lets me make daily entries, like a journal. 

I often open the app without knowing what I’m going to say I am grateful for. Doing this forces me to realize that I do have much to be thankful for, beyond the obvious things like friends, health, etc.

Drilling down often leads me to understand that my life is better than I think it is. It’s mine, I’m living it and I’m lucky to have what I have. It also makes me see my shortcomings which leads to asking myself what I need to do to change. 

Remember, all the good things in life, as defined by you, are not based on bank deposits and withdrawals. Being gracious for who you are, and knowing who you are is a lifeline, especially when something has been taken away from you or in times of loss. 

So yes, today’s entry in my journal was….I am grateful for my strong internal belief in myself. It was very empowering to read those words. I wonder how many others are fortunate to be able to feel the same about themselves? If you’re lucky enough to be one of them, be very grateful!
