Attitude of Gratitude

What a way to start the day! Ruby hadn’t made it off her street and the chaos had her feeling like “Screw it all!” I’ve been there. Have you? Hard to fight off that thought when you are in the grips of distress. What if you had a net to catch you before you fell all the way down to Screw-It-All-Ville? What if you already had the armor in place? Are you in a space where you can receive feedback? Good! Let’s get some quick interventions to implement.

Start your day with gratitude. Find ways to input gratitude in your life. Gratitude is an attitude and you can change your attitude anytime you want. You can even change it multiple times a day.

Are you okay hearing this? Good! Let’s keep going! Here are some easy tasks that can change how you maneuver through your day. Try one for a week (every day for a week) and we can check in next week to see if you notice any change.

  1. Write down 3 things you are grateful for each morning. This will start your day in a peaceful place looking forward to what is coming your way.
  2. Arrange a text exchange with a friend or group of friends. Text each other something you are grateful every day. This provides you with accountability and openness to someone’s experience. Gratitude is contagious!
  3. Create a gratitude jar. A helpful way to start this process is taking a few minutes to meditate on gratitude then make a list of everything you can think of to be grateful for. Put them in a jar and on days where the gratitude struggle bus is real, pull one out as a reminder. Remember- gratitude is contagious and this can snowball into a change in mindset.
  4. Tell someone else why you are grateful for them. That is a two-fold win! You are acknowledging gratitude and you are promoting someone else.
