In honor of this important holiday of harvest, diversity and gratitude, I thought I would write a post to make you pause and reflect. Instead of food, lifestyle and beauty, I am going deep. . . I am asking you to take a moment and reflect about your life and appreciate all that you have.
Today, I am posing some questions to you in hopes that it will make you think, appreciate and perhaps get some new perspective on your life. Take a moment to write down your responses to these questions so that you can reflect on them at a later date. In my day job, I am a professional question asker (moderator and previously a therapist), so now I have decided to flex this muscle in my blog, so here goes:
What are you most thankful for this year? List at least 5 things
Other than thanksgiving, do you regularly take the time to appreciate all the gifts in your life?
Have you taken the time lately to thank the people who make your life better? If not, use this post as a gentle reminder to reach out and say thank you
Have you ever made a gratitude list? If not, every night before you go to bed reflect on three things that you are grateful for and see how it makes you feel in the morning
Consider making a gratitude collage in honor of Thanksgiving, filled with everything that fills your heart and makes you smile–and use it during those stressful times
If you have faced any challenges this year, what pulled you through it? Take a moment to be thankful for overcoming hardship
In terms of being thankful and coming from a place of gratitude, what is the one thing that you want to make sure that you always appreciate and acknowledge not matter what?
Save these questions and your responses, and reflect on your growth year after year
Thank you for taking the time to stop by and visit today. I wanted you to know that I am very thankful for this blog, my dedicated readers and the freedom to share my passions with you.
Have a wonderful day and make sure to take the time to absorb the moments,
The Gratitude Goddess
