Gratitude challenge- update

So how are you finding this challenge? It is a simple exercise but a very important one- right?

I have written down down a few things that I’m immensely grateful for:

  1. Health- mine and my family’s. I’ve been struggling to shift something that very stubbornly does not seem to want to leave me. It’s left me very tired and at points very annoyed. So health is definitely something not to take for granted and something to be very grateful for.
  2. Family- my near and dear ones. I have a great family- very strong independent and thoughtful family members. How could I not be grateful for them…
  3. Friends- I have some great friends. Recently I haven’t paid as much attention to all my friends. Friendship is something you nurture and also a give and take relationship. I’m grateful for my friends and all the opportunities they have given me. And for all the listening at times…
  4. Career and life coach. This year, I decided to approach someone to help me untangle my career life a little. She’s given me so many great advice. It’s one of the reasons I decided to focus on the positive. I know for some people being positive is more normal… for others it is not. But we can all make a choice to focus on the positive! Every single one of us. I have always been into yoga and eastern medicine has fascinated me. I’ve tried acupuncture a few times and it’s actually been helpful for me. I fully realise that we all have different believes and different things work for different people. I fully understand, embrace and accept that. I do believe in energy and vibrations. Something that Gabby Bernstein talks a lot about. I am right now following her in the periphery. I guess it’s about being open minded.
  5. My determination. When I was 18, I decided to move away from home to a foreign country where I didn’t speak the language nor knew a single soul. Nuts- yes probably. Would I do it again- most definitely! It’s made me who I am today- all the good and the bad. Because admittedly who is perfect…?!
  6. Blogging. I am truly enjoying this journey and see my blogging as a long term thing. Will I continue blogging every day? Don’t know… but I’m the kind of person who thinks, analyse, have monologues, love talking, discussing, helping, making a difference and hopefully can make people realise that life is precious and amazing. In the good times and the bad. If we did not go through tough times- we wouldn’t know what good times feel like. Right? Make the most of it!!! I love the comments and discussions we have here. And I feel this is just a start for me. I have finally found a hobby that I enjoy. I’m not even sure it’s right to call it a hobby even…

Here are a few of my a philosophical “Good Things” I’ve written down so far. I know a habit doesn’t form in 7 days- but I hope that it is a start for some of us and something that will form into a habit that we will do automatically every day because it makes us feel great!!! I truly, truly recommend…!
