The Art of Gratitude!

Welcome to Week 1 of our focus on gratitude. I wanted to focus my post on the art – and joy – of keeping a gratitude journal. This is something I talk about a lot in my upcoming book, The Girl Guide – the need to refocus our thoughts to the things for which we are grateful.

It is easy as an intense individual to get wrapped up in the throes of emotion, allowing ourselves to get sucked into that vortex. Focusing on the positive, and being grateful for all of the things happening in our lives is ONE way to slow down the emotional roller-coaster and regaining a little perspective, autonomy and…well….balance.

Today, I want to challenge you and yours to practice a little gratitude. Keep a journal, blog, or post on your social media sites something you are grateful for – every single day.

Trust me, some days this is going to be BEYOND HARD. Other days, you will want to sing praises for many things. Whichever is true for you, know that focusing your intention on being grateful will change your perspective, right whatever is out of whack, and guarantee that you have MORE to be thankful for.

See, it really is about perspective!
