This book changed my life simply by the author's suggestion to write down five things everyday for which I was thankful.
Now, I was not unhappy at the time, but I did complain a lot. At the time the book came out I was a stay at home mom with four children - quadruplets - and I did moan and groan about my life. Then I read this book and I decided to keep a "Gratitude Journal."
I did use the one above, but I found that a simple notebook purchased at the food store was just perfect.
I would sit down every morning with my coffee and list five things I was grateful for. I soon discovered that I had many more than five. I was making a longer list as time went on.
Dear God, thank you for . . .
Soon I found that I was not complaining about my life, instead I was telling everyone how blessed and wonderful it was. My marriage was happier. My children were happier. I was happy!!!! And all it took were two little words - THANK YOU!
I still sit down every morning, with my coffee, and write down at least five blessings for which I am abundantly grateful. I am a very happy person. I love my life!
Go, do it now! Grab a piece of paper and a pen and write down 5 things you are thankful for. Then do it again tomorrow, and the day after that, and the day after that, etc. Watch how your life will change.
Thank you for taking the time to read this post. I am thankful for you.
