Keep a Gratitude Journal

Reasons to be Grateful

Yay! We made it to Friday! Every week we post a WEEKEND CHALLENGE! This week’s challenge is to keep a gratitude journal.

Think of things or people you are grateful for in your life. When you for the good in your life, it improves your health, and it makes you a happier person.

Focus on the Positive

It’s so easy to look at all the negative things in our lives, but does that really make us happy? Not at all!

We ALL have bad days, and we ALL have challenges, but we can choose our attitude and how we decided to go through our challenges.

I think of my grandpa in his last years. He struggled so much physically, but he was always looking at the good in the world. He was a great example to me. He taught us to look at the good no matter what we were going through in life. He still made jokes in some of his hardest times. What an example.

Complaining Doesn’t Help

Complaining doesn’t help anything. It just makes us more sad and depressed about our situations.

We choose to be happy or not. No one else can decide how we are going to react to a situation except US!


So take time this weekend to think of ALL of the positive things in your life. What are you grateful for? Let’s see if your list grows as we go through the weekend! Comment on this post to let us know what YOU are grateful for.

Enjoy your weekend!
