Prosperity Can Be Found in a Gratitude/Appreciation Journal

So often, our lives resemble a rat race and we lose sight of the abundance all around us. Today is the perfect day to take a few minutes to reflect on all the blessings you have received over the last year. Possessing an attitude of gratitude for what we have been given and what we have right now opens doors in so many different ways for more blessings to enter our lives. One of the easiest ways to get into a habit of gratitude is by keeping a journal just for things you are grateful for and appreciate and to fill this in on a regular basis.

The first time I heard of a gratitude journal was on the Oprah Winfrey show (but I have to admit I did think she had lost it slightly) but it was only after I decided to start one myself that I learned of the power of journaling and expressing daily gratitude. When you write down what you are grateful for, it puts things in an entirely new perspective. You start to realize how abundant your life is right now at this very moment and how much you actually do have at this very moment. It really is an awesome experience!

Keeping a gratitude journal keeps you focused on all that is good in your life and subconsciously you begin to expect more good things.

Starting today, begin your own journal writing down at least 10 things that you are really grateful for or appreciate. Get a book that is pleasing to you and remember that this journal should be personal as it will reflect who you are. Don’t worry about how much you should or shouldn’t write, don’t worry about your spelling etc after all this is personal and only you will see it (unless of course you decide to share it). Just let your thoughts flow and write whatever comes to mind. If you hit a blank just start with “I am so grateful for ……….” And something will come to mind.

Try this for just 1 month (30 days) and I guarantee your awareness for abundance in your life will be heightened in ways you never imagined.
