I know that sometimes the different roles you play in life may have you so busy until it seems like you just don’t have the time to stop and sit for a second. I encourage you to take a second and sit and think about the good and blessings in your life. Your life will be so much better, I know mine is.
I am also working on (finding) no making time to do just that. I have improved in this area but I am still a work in progress. In a previous post, I discussed how to start your day off by acknowledging and appreciating what you do have. It does help start your day off GREAT!
I was searching the web and the gratitude jar caught my eye. You write down things you are grateful or thankful on a piece of paper and put it in the jar. Pick a specific time to read the notes you put in the jar. So, I decided to make one for the family. I got a mason jar that I already had at the house, got some ribbons,and letter stickers from Target and that was it.
In family discussions, my kids do acknowledge their blessings but adding more ways to get them to participate in this will only make them more aware of them. Kids can sometimes forget lol. Well, adults can sometimes forget too. I have been guilty lol of that. This gratitude jar will help eliminate room for negativity in my family’s life as a whole. As I move along this journey towards a healthier me, it not only helps my life but my family as well. I incorporate whatever improving I am participating in their lives as well.
Let’s motivate each other.
What are some ways you participate in to acknowledge gratitude and thankfulness? I would love feedback.
