I started this challenge today and wanted to share what I’m up to. I have been going, or should I say growing, through life this season; it has been hellish, and I mean hellish in literally all areas of my life. I recently observed that the more I focus on the negatives around me, the worse the situation becomes; maybe you’ve noticed this in your life as well? So I simply decided after watching my girl Terri Savelle Foy (I love her so much, she is simply incredible. I am actively following her like a stalker and purchase so many of her books that I might get restrained. Did I already mention that I love and appreciate her? LOL!) that I will start a gratitude challenge and include all others so we can share our experience through the process.
So here is what I’m doing, a heartfelt little joy you can perform, too.
For ten days, pick one to ten people you’ll send a gratitude message to via email, text or a card/ letter. The message should be purposeful and intentional.
- Bobby – Hey, how are you? Hope your day is going great. Just wanted to appreciate you for being amazing in my life, thank you for being there for me in so many ways. God bless you forever
- Tammy – Girl, how is it going? Was just thinking about you and wanted to let you know what an awesome person you are. I am so grateful to have you in my life and I appreciate our incredible friendship all these years. I wish you all the goodness, prosperity and joy your deserve and more.
You understand where I’m going, right? Right?! I feel good already letting someone know how I appreciate them. A handwritten card/letter is even more considerate but which ever means you are able to is equally thoughtful and kind. Just imagine how you’d feel if you got that kind of message out of the blue. You’d definitely feel great and hopefully pay it forward also.
Make up your mind, pick any day to start, and let’s share the experience by leaving a comment on this blog or email me. I hope this experience brings you joy, wholeness and appreciation for the gift of gratitude. Let’s go be grateful!
