I decided to start this gratitude challenge even though it is over, because it is never too late to be grateful for the things you have.
I don’t have it all but I have a lot and I have known in theory and sometimes through practice, that being grateful and looking at the bright side helps you. You are able to be at peace, to be happy and also be kind to others.
Your life changes when you decide to give thanks for all the big and little things you have. You feel lifted and blessed, you have a glow that cannot be ignored and a spirit that attracts greatness.
This is I decided to do this challenge, so that I can actively give thanks for my blessings and hopefully encourage others to do the same.
“Gratitude begins in our hearts and then dovetails into behavior. It makes you willing to be of service, which is where the joy resides. When you are aware of all that has been given to you, in your lifetime and the past few days, it is hard not to be humbled, and pleased to give back.”
