Days of Gratitude... Day four!

Welcome to "Mellie's Days of Gratitude". The following days will hopefully help open your heart to the miracle of gratitude and the amazing changes that can happen when we become more grateful. Sharing this will also help me in many ways too. Life for me is about making a difference, helping someone and paying rent for my space while on this earth. Together we can support, love and honor each other while making small changes, bringing big results!
I hope you will join me!

Day FOUR: Today I just want us to remember to find gratitude in hidden little places. Not all days show us gratitude in an easy noticeable way. Some days, honestly, I don't feel grateful at all I can struggle just to get through my day with all it's challenges and emotions.

These days are the days when we all need to seek out gratitude the most, by looking around at the little things. When you have a day you don't feel like getting out of bed or those days when you wish we had never gotten out of bed... these are the days gratitude can become a very compelling tool that can make a great impact on our overall well being. It's such a cliche to say but start with the fact that you were ABLE to get out of bed. Find the silver lining in your hard day knowing you were allowed another day with your family and friends. Be thankful for your health, even if you deal with chronic pain or a disease....you're still here and fighting. If dealing with troubles in relationships, be thankful for new beginnings or try and focus on the good memories to allow yourself peace and grace towards the other person.

Gratitude does not have to appear on a billboard, it doesn't need to be a life changing moment... sometimes it can be quiet thought in our heads to help us remember to be grateful for SOMETHING and to continue to seek out even more little things throughout our day.

Today I am grateful that I woke up. I am grateful I was able to get my littles motivated and moving and off to school on time in a calm and loving way (we were REALLY late this morning) and I am grateful for the laughs in the car on the way to school. Most of all I am grateful for those little tax deductions because THEY are the reason I work so hard, I push myself and thrive to be better and ultimately they are the reward for MY life.

Find your gratitude today and feel free to share with anyone and everyone what it is..so that YOU too can help someone else find theirs!
