Happy New Year everyone! We made it to 2018. I am insanely happy to be here right now! 2017 was good to me. I traveled a bit, experienced some lows, and learned tons! I also became a relatively spiritual person and that is surprising! It was a time of growth. I want to continue the journey of living intentionally.
The word of the year is gratitude. I found that verbalizing something I am grateful for daily has really changed the game. I often say a general thank you to the universe or whoever positively contributed to my life in some way.
With a new year comes the making of resolutions. It is great to have goals in self development. How about we make the resolution of recognizing the good we already have? We don’t necessarily need to change ourselves, just our mindset. Let’s make expressing gratitude a part of every day. This is what I plan to do this year.
I’ve seen many variations of the gratitude challenge, but there are no strict rules to this. I’m going to post something I’m grateful for at least once a day online for the entirety of 2018. It could be on any social media platform but I will probably use Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter the most. Even if I am having a bad day, find myself really busy, or just not in the mood, I will still make every attempt to post something.
+Why this is important
With all of the day to day, injustice, and chaos in the world, sometimes we forgot the blessings we have in our individual lives. Even when things are tough, the fact that we are still breathing is enough to know that it can get better. It is my belief that the practice of expressing gratitude will allow greater things to manifest. We can go from lack to abundance just by changing our mindset about our current circumstances.
My hope is that many will join me in being grateful in 2018 and every year after. This is the time for positivity and abundance! Let’s transform together.
