People always make New Year’s resolutions, only to blow them off six weeks later. And, that’s next week. I resolved to give up resolutions years ago. Instead, on New Year’s Day I pick something I want to focus on – and this year it was gratitude’s turn.
Besides attracting better things, you will attract even more things, because what we focus on expands. And by looking for things to be grateful for, you will find that you’re happier.
It’s not that everything will suddenly be perfect, sometimes life turns into a shit-show no matter how well we plan it. But, we can choose to look for something positive to be thankful for in each situation.
Every evening before bed I write down at least 5 things I am grateful for in the journal I bought just for this purpose. It’s still early in the year, why not find a journal or notebook and give it a try? See what happens and let me know.
As far as I’m concerned, the best benefit of gratitude is walking around with a smile on your face all of the time. That’s a sexy look at any age, and it will make people wonder what you’re up to!
