I’ve always been consumed by the nature of being grateful and thankfulness. For me, it is in my nature to be thankful for who I have in my life and what I have in my life.
I know that my emotional and intellectual compass must be off balance when I start to feel depleted by feelings of why can’t I get that blog opportunity/clothes/stuff/(fill in the blank)? So when those feelings wash over me, I have tricks I pull out to help me focus on all the wonderful things (and especially people!) that I do have in my life. By using some of these techniques, it helps me refocus, re-energize and actually bring about more greatness in my life.
For the last month or so, I have been writing down one to two things I am thankful for at the end of the day. So, seeing as Thanksgiving is this month I thought I would do something different and share it with this community. I will be sharing one thing that I am thankful for each day on the Mama Goes BAM Facebook page, Twitter and/or Instagram. I don’t want to tie myself down to one medium to express what I am thankful for. Some days I will post a picture, some days it will just be one sentence. I’m not trying to add one more thing to my evergrowing to-do list, so I’m keeping it simple:
One picture or One sentence per day about something/someone I am thankful for #30Thanks
I hope that you will join me! Starting November 1, I will be tagging all pictures and sentences of thankfulness with #30Thanks and hope to have a thread everyday on Facebook for you to add yours. If you participate just even one day or all month, tag your thankfulness statement or picture with #30Thanks so that I can see it.
Think of it as my Thanksgiving gift to you! Trust me, you’ll go to sleep feeling better knowing that you have something to be thankful for, instead of having feelings of resentment and sadness about what you don’t have.
