I look up my life as a journey and think about anything good or bad that gets me where I am now. I do not take anything for granted and I appreciate every small thing in my life
i think about everything that have happened during the day and everyone that i’ve met, every little thing that made me feel grateful for living that day.. i know that sometimes it’s hard and i don’t find things to be grateful for when i am really sad, but you can try and if you don’t find anything you can try again the next day – maybe start thinking at least at three things (a tasty food or drink, a nice word from someone, a nice animal you have seen, a walk by yourself, some good music and so on)
I choose to be grateful for waking up, I choose to be grateful for having things I did not have before. I choose to be grateful for having the mind that I have
I think of really basic things – being able to smell, the leaves changing colour. I try to reframe things like the carpet or flooring in my house to be something to be grateful for. I don’t just write down *what* I’m grateful for, I write down *why* I’m grateful for it – how it improves my life. I find this really helps me to internalise that feeling that I’m fortunate to experience those things.
Simply look around! The people in my life give me meaning and purpose. My pets help me de-stress and regulate emotion. I start off by being grateful for them. Then I start to look in front of my. I am grateful to have clean water, a roof over my head, and other things that help me survive. These include things like power and plumbing. Then I start to think of all the abundance in my life! I have priveledges like cash in my wallet, beautiful curtains in my room, a king size bed, etc. I am so grateful that I am well and able to work and provide for my family. I am so grateful for so many things that it is hard to not be grateful!!! I won't take my life for granted. I will take care of myself, my family, and our things because I have worked so hard to get them! All I need to do is look around me to find all the things to be grateful for!
When you're first starting out, it can be challenging to find something to be grateful for, especially after a long and hard day. I find it best to start really simple. When you can't think of anything, the basic, most obvious ones like, "I'm grateful that I woke up this morning," and "I'm thankful to be alive and breathing" are enough to get the ball rolling. It might feel a little silly righting down things like that at first, but the sooner we speak/write out the obvious things we're blessed with, the sooner – and easier – it will be to find more and more things that you're grateful for. Before you know it, you won't have to think as hard about finding an answer to the question, "What are you grateful for today?"
