“Every day is a gift. But some days are packaged better.”
The holidays were different this year for most of us and I am thankful even in the midst of challenges. I have been in deep reflection and contemplation over the past few days and reminded myself of a few things that fill me with gratitude:
- peaceful walks in nature
- pup snuggles
- my family
- good health
- a job
- meaningful connections with friends
- chocolate (and all other good snacks that got me through this year)
- quiet time for reflection
- watching my hair grow over the past few months
- green plants in my home
- hot coffee and hot chocolate
- homemade bread
- moments of self-compassion and self-love
What about you? Have you taken a moment to think about the things, people, and experiences that fill you with gratitude?
If you want to take a moment of reflection, check out this journal I made with seven reflection prompts and affirmations.
In the new year, I will be releasing a monthly newsletter with a pdf journal. The journal will include reflections, affirmations, and journaling prompts centered around a specific theme. I will share content about mindfulness, gratitude, wellbeing, and guided meditations in blog posts. Join my email list to get your monthly newsletter! The first one goes out on 1/1/2021.
This week, I will continue to focus on gratitude and will remind myself to stay in the present moment. I hope you will join me.
With deep gratitude,
