You know that gratitude is important to your well-being, and it’s at the very core of your faith.
It’s so easy to get bogged down in negative thoughts when you’re grinding through each day.
I mean …
Your job is relentless …
Your kids have you running around like a madman or madwoman after work …
The air conditioning in your house needs fixed …
You have to find time to do your taxes …
And … doesn’t the car engine sound *off* today? It’s not supposed to knock like that, right?
That’s why a gratitude journal can be invaluable in helping you keep touch with what’s important to you. The things that are right with your life and make each day a blessing, even when it’s hard to see from moment to moment.
Even so, sometimes it’s still hard to come up with something to write about when your world seems to be swirling a million miles an hour.
If you find yourself out of time, or simply out of ideas for your gratitude journal, maybe you just need a little prompting.
Like, maybe a full month’s worth of prompting.
Sound helpful? Great! Let’s dig in …
