This lesson is from Monday March 15th.
Something that I have learned over the years is that it is important to express gratitude as much as you possibly can. Learning to be grateful is such a blessing. I love starting and ending my days with what I am thankful for. There may be days when we don’t have much to be thankful for, but we actually do.
It’s important to find the silver lining in a lot of different situations. Many of you may not have known this but I was hit by a car almost a year and a half ago. I am so thankful that nothing bad happened to me. I only suffered a few bruises on me. I have no long term deficits. I am so thankful for that. I realize that my life could have been so different if something bad had happened to me.
Oprah Winfrey also recommends that we have a gratitude journal, where we spend some time throughout the week writing down things we are thankful for.
Today, I will try to spend time thinking or even writing the things that I am grateful for. It is important for me to express gratitude because it improves my self esteem, makes me happier and overall more healthier. I don’t have to spend a great big deal of time, but as long as I spend some time thinking about what I am thankful. I will try my best to make it a habit.
