Spending a day resting makes a major difference in my life. It’s like taking a day off each week. This note is a “quick write” in my Diary Beth diary about my feelings on enjoying my time of reflection, family and my husband. I was happy, enthusiastic and optimistic.
Gratefulness is not a word you should only use around thanksgiving time. Everyday, I spend some time thinking about the things, persons and experiences I am thankful for. This makes me feel joyful and inspired to achieve more, do more and be more. Acknowledging life's grateful moments, compels me to look at all of the things that I appreciate and am thankful for. Doing this everyday is a good habit because sometimes we forget the things that enrich our lives.
TIP: Take an old jar, pencil and scrap paper. Everyday write down one thing you are thankful for.
Add it to the jar.
At the end of the month or even at the end of the year review all of the slips of paper and count your blessings.
Believe in yourself. It sounds cliché I know but believing in yourself is the first step to reaching your dreams and living the life you have always wanted. The skills and attributes that you have are the foundation to achieve the goals that you have set. If you do not have the skills to work towards your goals, collaborate with other people who have those skills.
Do not be afraid to ask for help.
Do you take a day to reflect or rest?
Is it a spa day, day with friends or family?
Day at the beach?
