You Don’t Always Get a Break
For many people, Thanksgiving is a time to reflect and show appreciation before the New Year begins, but it’s not always easy. Life doesn’t stop when we want it to, even during this “most wonderful time of the year.” Sometimes we may just be having a gloomy day. Other times, bigger issues occur, like breakups, family issues and health problems. You don’t always get a break when you want it. So how do you turn your burdens into bliss? You start a gratitude journal.
A Gratitude Journal
Gratitude is something that we psychics like to show every day. It allows Spirit to see our successes and appreciation, so our guides know we’d like to continue receiving the good vibes they’ve given. Yes, this is sometimes difficult in traumatic situations or depressions, but I really urge you to keep a gratitude journal. You don’t have to do it forever—just try it for the holiday season. Every night, right before you go to bed, list five things that make you feel thankful for your life. It could be anything, including a warm meal on a chilly day or a friendly chat you had with a stranger.
The Bad Days
Not only does a gratitude journal make you acknowledge the good in your life; on bad days it gives you plenty of reminders that life is still good. All you have to do is go back through your journal and see the wonderful things that have already happened. This will certainly pull you out of a funk! You’ll learn to be more aware of the things you truly love about your life, and it will naturally become easier to feel grateful and happy over time.
Finding Gratitude in These Challenges
Life is filled with not-so-great situations, so let’s take them and turn them into something a little more positive. Here are a few examples:
The Passing of a Pet
You’ve just lost a furry friend who has shown you unconditional love and you feel defeated and heartbroken. Understandable. But in your gratitude journal you should write about this loving soul that blessed your life. It will help you heal faster.
Not Getting the Job You Want
Instead of thinking you aren’t ever going to get your big break, consider a rejection as a sign that the job you applied for wasn’t meant to be yours and that your dream job is still out there. You’ll bounce back from rejection faster.
Your gratitude journal will reassure you, no matter what you’re going through. Good will inevitable come back into your life and you know this to be true because you have a journal that is filled with all the good you have already experienced. A gratitude journal is like a balm for your wounds and it also makes you more empathic towards other people who are also struggling.
It takes a few minutes each night to write in a gratitude journal, but those few minutes are very powerful. They will help you feel more content, peaceful and more willing to help others. Learn to be thankful every day—not just on Thanksgiving!
