Welcome to my new blog series, Thankful Thursday. Every Thursday I'll be posting 5 things I'm feeling especially thankful for. I truly believe in the power of gratitude, and that when you are sincerely thankful for your blessings, acknowledge those blessings and say "thank you" for them, you will only receive more blessings in your life. Read The Magic by Rhonda Byrne if you don't know what the hell I'm on about.
After reading this book, I've been trying to list 10 things I'm thankful for each day. Each morning I have a 40-minute commute to work, and I usually reflect on my previous day and list the 10 things that I'm most thankful for that day. It's so easy, when you think about it, we really do have so much to be thankful for. The Fiancé and I will also do this on some Sunday evenings, and we'll share the things we are most thankful for that day.
It's a great way to get yourself to focus on the good things in your life, and to have more positive thoughts in general. Even if you have a crappy day, I promise you you'll be able to list 10 things that you are thankful for. Try it!
