Journal This: How Can You Bring Gratitude to the Things That Feel Hard?
Twice today, I was in discussion about gratitude but we weren’t talking about sunshine or flowers or a roof over our head. We were bringing gratitude to the moments in our lives that have brought us to our knees because these are the moments that have cleared the path to truly show us the way.
As we give thanks this week, let’s look past the things that feel good and easy and instead find gratitude in our challenges for through them, we are able to truly grow, heal and feel blessed.
Can you bring gratitude to your struggles?
That difficult relationship? Your illness? Your financial hardships? Your broken heart? All the things that feel like they don’t go as planned. What blessings and lessons lie within them? Can you change your perspective so they feel empowering?
Can you bring gratitude to the teachers in your life? While some show up as mentors and support systems, our greatest teachers may be found in the contrast – you know, those difficult relationships that ask us, how can I do this better? What can I learn from this? What role am I playing in this experience?
When we are able to see the light and love in our suffering, we can more easily trust the process because we can truly believe, with gratitude, that everything is always working out for us. There are lessons and blessing in each moment and for that, I am grateful. When we trust we feel held and connected and nurtured so deeply…no matter what. And for this, I am forever thankful. 💗
With this being said, what are your grateful for? ✨
Name one or several challenges you have faced in your life then answer one of the following questions.
- What did I learn from this experience?
- How did I grow from this experience?
- What blessing did I gain from this experience?
- Name a few people that supported you through the experience and or, how you realized your own strength…because sometimes the universe asked us to do things on our own so we can learn just how capable we are.
Sending Love and Light to all of you on Thanksgiving and always…
