Gratitude is the BEST Attitude

Sometimes the universe works in mysterious ways. When life gets complicated it is easy to fall into a pattern of negativity. I struggle with this myself at times. Finding things to be thankful for may seem like an exercise in futility, especially when it feel like the odds are stocked against you, but it really does work.

If you can find at least one thing to be thankful for every morning when you wake up and every night before you go to sleep, you can quickly flip your attitude from one of soul sucking discouragement to one of bright shiny optimism.

I recommend a journal. Sometimes it is helpful to write down your feelings, to help you sort through them. When you find something to be grateful for, write it down and highlight it! Writing it down is an excellent way to affirm your gratitude, keeping it in the front of your focus.


In the morning you could write- “Today I am grateful for...”

In the evening you could write- “Today I was grateful that ... happened.”

Be as creative as you like! Use fun pens and markers or find positive quotes to affirm you positive mindset.

Soon you will be on your way to a happier day! :)

And just remember...

It is not happy people who are thankful, It is thankful people who are happy.
