If you know me personally, you know I write in a gratitude journal each morning. It is something I started last year that has been extremely beneficial for my mindset and perspective. I am able to immediately start my day in a positive head space focused on the good around me…even throughout a difficult season. It makes me feel grounded and helps me place my energy towards the things I am thankful for.
I wanted to share some of the things I am focusing on during this strange and anxious time in case it feels like there aren’t many things to be thankful for. I would love to know anything you are focusing on!
