Happy Sunday everyone! I know sometimes it can be really hard to find things to be thankful for when you’re going through a rough time. The thing is, gratitude is one of the best ways to shift your perspective and get you out of that tough place you’re in. One of the best ways to do so is by finding something simple to be grateful for. The simpler, the better to start off. I’ve found gratitude to be such a powerful tool, that I dedicated an entire chapter to it in my book. It’s one of the 10 things I did consistently for 2 years that helped me overcome a 17-year battle with depression.
Here’s an excerpt from the chapter on gratitude:
“As difficult as my work life was, challenging the relationships in my life were, how little I felt I had to show for my life, and complicated my personal life was, I also knew I still had a lot to be thankful for… Each year I wished it were Thanksgiving every day and I finally realized it could be. I didn’t have to wait for the last Thursday in November to be thankful. I could live my life from a place of thanks every day.”
Whether you’re struggling with depression, or just want to develop a more positive and empowering approach to life, you might enjoy the blueprint I share in my book. You can find more details here.
