I have a hard time showing gratitude.

It’s not that I’m not thankful for everything I have — I just tend to forget. I’m always so entangled in the next step that I forget to stop and show gratitude for where I am and what I have.

This shouldn’t be too hard considering all it takes is a few moments.

Whether you’re showing gratitude towards someone else or simply reminding yourself in a journal, a few minutes can make all of the difference.

Within these few minutes, you can:

  • Tell someone how much they really mean to you.
  • Remind yourself of how far you’ve come.
  • Acknowledge life’s little pleasures, like coffee or you know, being alive.
  • Identify a new opportunity to take during the day.

The list goes on and on.
