My sister is starting a new trend, and I quite like the idea. She’s calling it Grateful Thursday (although had she asked my opinion I would have gone with something more alliterative but, such is life) and it’s a fantastic idea.
In my opinion, one of the key tenets of happiness comes from gratitude.
Expressing gratitude aloud (or on the internet, as the case may be) helps me remember to keep things in perspective.
She’s going to do this every Thursday, so I’m going to express gratitude on a weekly basis.
Today, I’m going to talk about my mantra. This changes often but these days, the phrase I repeat to myself every morning is this:
“I love my life, I love my family, I love my friends. All of my problems are first world problems, and I am a lucky girl. I have many things to look forward to, including the hot shower I’m about to step into.”
Do you have a mantra?
Also, PS, all you lovely people? Do you think you could join me, express gratitude, and link your post to her sometime today or tonight?
Maybe next week?
