We hear about the power of being positive all the time. But let’s face it. It is really hard to avoid the negativity in the world! And we can’t even blame “the media.” Though it is right that the media does run a ridiculously high proportion of negative stories, so do we. Our social media feeds are filled with all of the bad, and scary and complaining in life.
So it’s hard to stay positive when surrounded by all of that. But it’s not impossible.
One way I have found to put my mind on the right track is through gratitude. By taking the time to be thankful for what I have in life (for how GOOD life is) I am able to re-frame most days. And of course, when I am in a positive frame of mind I am more productive…which ironically creates more for which to be grateful! That’s a productive loop!
So for the next month, here is the challenge I am giving myself (and I would LOVE for you to join me). I am doing a 30 day Gratitude Challenge. Each day for the next 30 days I am going to send (at least) one card to someone thanking them for what they mean in my life. It might be someone from a while ago. Or it might be something that happened that day. Please join me.
I am confident if we spend every day looking for something to be grateful for, we will find it!
I am going to use Send Out Cards because that makes it convenient for me. But do this however you like. It will take time. There will days that it will be hard. But I would love for many of us to go out and spend the next 30 days showing the universe our attitude of gratitude.
Who is with me? Oh…and please let me know how it goes!
