If you stopped and took five minutes this morning to think back on your week, what stands out? Which moments bring a smile to your face? When did you feel deep appreciation for being present and aware of the good in life?
We move so quickly each day that we sometimes forget to just be mindful of how we’re feeling in each situation. We fail to connect with what’s truly meaningful.
So I dare you to stop whatever it is you’re doing this morning and think of at least 3 things that made your week just a little bit brighter? Do this before you write that email or respond to your messages.
What did you come up with? Where is the source of that gratitude? Reflect on that and consider making this a small practice worth doing each work in a gratitude journal.
I’ve shared my journal in one form or another with everyone for the past six months because I’ve seen the impact this exercise has on my well-being. It puts things into perspective and aligns me with my true purpose.
