Looking for a way to increase your joy? (Um, aren’t we all?) Then may I suggest this Inspirational Thanksgiving Quote from Harry Ironside:
“We would worry less if we praised more. Thanksgiving is the enemy of discontent and dissatisfaction.”
Simple and yet profound – as much of life’s wisdom often is! Sometimes I fall into the habit of worrying and actually think that I’m being “responsible” because I’m doing it. Silly, I know but sometimes true. Fortunately I’ve begun to truly challenge this habit and I’m seeing increased joy in my everyday! Admittedly some days are a bit easier than others but it’s working – all by just being purposefully thankful.
The holiday season is now in full swing and things are only going to get busier and busier so I encourage you to take a moment everyday – even if it’s just while you’re in the shower or brushing your teeth to name 5 things your grateful for today. You’ll be surprised what a difference it will begin to make!
Here’s my list for today:
- My God
- My family & friends
- My home
- Money to pay my bills
- This blog – it really is a dream come true to share my creativity and ideas with you!
What are you grateful for today? It would be an honor to have you share some (or all 5!) of yours in the comments below.
