Gratitude Journal


gratitudeI have heard countless accounts of people who have made decisions to focus on being grateful on a daily basis, and who have managed to change their lives.

So, I made a decision that I too wanted to start something like that for myself, and shift my focus from all the negativity and all the things that I am not happy about in my life.

You can join me in this journey if you want to. . . in fact I would love for you to. 

What are you grateful for in your life? It could be anything. . . Your health, your job, the people in your life, the oxygen in your lungs. .  . Anything at all.

Monday is definitely not my favorite day of the week, well unless I have taken leave from work. I knew it would be a bit of a challenge, but I decided that no matter how the day turns out, there are amazing things about this day. Things, that if I paused and noticed, I would be grateful for.

Today, I am grateful for:

  • For the air in my lungs. Because as long as I still have air, I can still fulfill my God given destiny. As long as I still have breath, I can still press on towards what I dream my life to be.
  • For my job. Because even though it is not my ideal job, and I don’t get paid what I would like to or what I feel I deserve, it still puts food on the table. It’s allowing me to channel money into my business and it allows me to do things for myself and those I love.
  • For my family. For without them, I would be lost. Without them I wouldn’t know love, except that which comes from God. Without them, I wouldn’t know that there’s a group of people who would give me the world.
  • For God. For He decided on my existence, he decided on my being and no matter how much I mess up, He loves me anyway. He’s keeping me around and he’s with me through it all, even though I don’t deserve it.

And as I write this, I am grateful that Monday is almost over. I am looking forward to tomorrow and all that it will bring. 

30 September 2014 – Today I am Thankful for:

Today I woke up feeling so grateful.

I remember a period of a month where I had sores on my tongue in my mouth. This made it difficult to eat and I couldn’t enjoy food. In fact, I had even lost some taste in my mouth, which made it impossible to enjoy anything I ate.

Today I woke up and remembered that I have been blessed that my mouth and my tongue have gone back to normal. They both were ok and all the taste is back in my mouth.

It may seem so small, but it’s a huge inconvenience, and at times the pain can be extremely unbearable. And it’s something I never took notice of . . . until I couldn’t enjoy my favorite foods. 

I feel blessed, and I just don’t want to take it for granted anymore.

I am healthy, that makes me feel so grateful as well.

Right now as I finish this, I am coming back from work and I am so grateful that I was pretty productive.

I was stuck most of the day, until God showed me something and I am so grateful.

Was feeling the pressure of month end at work, with client reports, I am grateful now that I am feel I can handle it.

I am grateful for today. Many others didn’t get to see it.

Thank you to my Creator.
