We made it to November. November/Thanksgiving is one of my top three favorite holidays because it is a beautiful time for us to sit, take a breath, and remember what we are grateful for. I’m going to share a few ways to practice gratitude this month and throughout the whole year.
Each day or week create a list of 5-10 things you are thankful for.
They can be big or small moments. For example: I am thankful for my comfy bed I sleep in each night.
When your having a bad day, you can come back to your list, and inhale love and exhale gratitude.
Take pictures of what you are thankful for or scroll through your phone, social media, computer, or camera and create a digital or “old school” photo album.
*I personally love “old school” photo albums because, you can visually see the picture and hold that special moment you captured directly in your hands.
Print and frame your top five pictures then place them around your house or create a gratitude wall that you can add to throughout the year.
3. Write a thank you note
Go to the dollar tree or dollar spot at Target to find your favorite Thank You card pack.
If you want to be really “fancy” you could grab some fun stickers and colorful pens to decorate your card.
Write short sweet notes to the ones you love to just tell them THANK YOU.
*My mom and grandmother continue to write sweet notes to me, other family members and friends. It brings me so much joy!
4. Thankful Jar
Have everyone in your family write what they are thankful for on slips of paper. (Write as many as you would like)
Fold each paper in half then fill the jar.
Each day, week, or when your family needs a joyful moment someone can pull and read one of the pieces of paper.
5. Share gratitude moments
Last "Friendsgiving” my friends and I went around in a circle and shared one thing we were thankful for.
I can remember this moment vividly because I could feel the grateful energy in the room.
Incorporating all of these gratitude practices together could bring anyone so much love and joy! To speak, see, write, and practice gratitude can help you cultivate an attitude with gratitude.
I am thankful for everyone who takes the time to read my blog posts. I hope you and your families have a Thanksgiving full of gratitude and love. I would love to hear what you and your family are thankful for. Share your gratitude with us!!
