Happy Friday All! What are you grateful for today? I want to hear!
Having a grateful mindset can change your life. Are you living your true, best life? Are you spending the majority of your time in a positive head space? You spend a lot of time in your head, why not make it a wonderful place to be?
How can you start living a life full of gratitude and pure happiness?
Play – make time for fun! Especially in times of mental stress or big decisions that need to be made.
Redefine your relationship with your past – the mistakes and the failures. Look back and recognize the lessons learned. Look for the gift in each situations. The biggest learning lessons in our lives didn’t come from textbooks, they come from mistakes and recognizing the opportunity to grow and learn.
Brighten up someone else’s day! Be a light for others, If you are looking for joy and positivity; be the source and pass it on to other. Watch the universe deliver it back, ten fold. “be the change you wish to see in the world”
Rest – you are not a machine, take care of yourself! You can not take care of others if you do not take care of yourself. There is power in “alone” or “me” time. Harness this power and watch the magic flow.
Celebrate small wins! Set goals, but also make sure there are small, achievable goals to keep you feel positive and full of motivation.
Get Outside! It is truly amazing the effect connecting with nature has on ones soul. Plant your bare feet on the grass and feel the connection. Feel the reset. Close your eyes and breathe in the fresh air. Listen to the birds chirping around you, the wind in the trees. Feel your body and soul relax.
Tune into your gratitude! Two people can look at a situation and have a completely different view of it. Look at each situation and find the good! Start each day by listing 3 things you are grateful for, big and small. This starts your day on a positive note. I have done this for the past year, when you are feeling down, or having a bad day, STOP. Stop what you are doing, close your eyes, take 3 deep breaths, now think of 3 things you are grateful for. So life has thrown you a lemon, you can either sit there and complain about getting a sour lemon, or you can take the lemon and make lemonade, lemon tarts, or lemon pie. The possibilities are endless when gratitude it recognized. It may sound silly, but give it a try and I PROMISE you will feel a shift in your life.
Step away and let go of negativity. Be that a situation or a person. Release all that does not serve you. This is not being selfish, this is self-love and recognizing your worth. Choose you. Choose happiness. Life is to short to be anything but happy and to treat each day as anything less than a gift. Spend it doing what you love with whom you love.
SMILE. The simple act will put you in a happier state. It will radiate to others, with a simple smile you are manifesting positivity into your life. Smile because you are amazing, you are here and there is SO much to be grateful for each day. You have never seen this day before, the possibilities are endless, how amazing is that?
Being positive is a choice. Choosing happiness can have a profound impact on your life, your relationship[s and in every aspect of you life.
Are you choosing to live a positive life? If not, if you are struggling, today is the day to make the change!
Be the person you wish the world was full of. Change starts with you!
All my love, always.
