Attitude of Gratitude, Part 1: The Challenge
Tis the season for gratitude.
But it's easier said than done, right?
It's all too easy to get caught up in the frustrations of daily life-- traffic, running late, spilling your coffee, not finding what you wanted at the store, your alarm not going off... I could go on, but I don't think I need to. You know exactly what I mean.
There are so many things that can get in the way of our happiness and gratitude. But there are also many things that can make us grateful if only we would pay attention.
As we get nearer to Thanksgiving and then Christmas, I'm challenging myself and YOU to adopt an attitude of gratitude!
What does that mean, exactly?
It means practicing patience.
It means looking for the silver lining.
It means being a glass-half-full kind of person.
It means SAYING "thank you."
For me, it means taking time to write down the things I'm thankful for on a more regular basis. I've always liked doing that, but I've gotten out of the habit lately, and I want to focus on it more with the holidays coming up since that's naturally a more stressful season.
So I'm starting an Attitude of Gratitude Challenge to be more intentional in writing down things I'm thankful for in this season.
Will you join me? (Stay tuned for more about adopting and maintaining an attitude of gratitude!)
