Being Thankful Every Day
The holidays are here again!
With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I keep seeing people posting on social media all the things that they are thankful for. And while I think that expressing gratitude is always a good thing; I always wonder why people only seem to do it around a specific holiday?
Why only think about what you are thankful for around Thanksgiving? Why not do it all year round, every day?
Today's podcast talks about why remembering to be thankful every single day is so important.
Now I know that for many of us single moms it can be hard sometimes to be thankful or show gratitude. When things seem so hard or stressful. When you aren't sure how you are going to pay the bills this month or if you will have enough food.
When your ex decides to stop paying child support. Or maybe you are recently divorced and it seems hard to see how you could possibly be thankful for your world falling apart at the seams. These hard times can make it very hard to find things to be thankful for.
But it's these times when it is more important than ever to work on being thankful. Because that is how we bring ourselves back to the light and the good times. By finding the good in the bad.
Creating a daily gratitude practice for yourself can be so helpful and will often get you through those hard times with a better outlook.
This episode covers a few ways to help yourself in your gratitude practice
