Your ABCs of Gratefulness!
Today, I am brimming with energy and overflowing with JOY Isaiah 40:28-31, Romans 15:13
There is always something you can find to be grateful for. Take a moment to see all the gifts the Universe gives us. Gives to you! Look in your home or go outside and see what is already at your fingertips. Nature, the birds chirping, flowers in a garden, a beautiful sky. It’s all there, and it is FREE for the looking! Take a walk and see what is around you and take it in. Breathe! Be Grateful you are alive! Be Grateful and Appreciate the little things in life.
Being grateful for what you have and what you will receive is so easy if you take a moment to notice.
About four or five years ago, I started a JOY Journal. First, I would write down what I was grateful for and add quotes that appealed to me. Then, I would often sit with a cup of tea and reread a few of what I have written down; it always makes me feel good. Sometimes it brings back memories. So try it, take a moment with a cup of tea, and reread your past writings. I promise it’ll promote positivity and a joyful feeling when you do this. It’s like creating your own calm.
I start each day with an attitude of gratitude, as Jack Canfield would say. So start your day Being Grateful and live an Attitude of Gratefulness every day.
So, here is my 26 days of Gratefulness, thinking it would be fun to pull some of my I am Grateful lines and put them in alphabetical order.

If you haven’t started your own Grateful Hour, here are a few tips you might consider trying.
Start a mindful Gratitude practice each morning.
- Set up a happy and comfortable place in your home. A cozy chair or use a yoga mat, whatever makes you feel comfortable.
- Try an essential oil to help create some balance, and create a relaxing mood. Use a diffuser and add a few drops of Doterra Balance Essential Oil. Or you can add a drop of the oil to your pulse points and the bottoms of your feet.
- Grab a cup of tea and your journal.
- Next is music; play some light music, and you could start with this old and lovely song, “Kind and Generous” by Natalie Merchant.
- Follow with 5-minute mindfulness meditation to rejuvenate your spirit.
May this time for yourself bring you a Grateful Heart full of Happiness and Joy. Start a Grateful and Joyful Habit!
