Hi Everyone!

I hope you all had a very merry Christmas and for those of you don’t celebrate, than I hope you got to enjoy some quality time with the family. Speaking of family, today I wanted to touch on something that too many of us tend to forget around this time of year what with the amazing sales around every corner and the pressure to get the perfect gift, and that is gratitude.

All over social media, blogs, Youtube, you name it! People are highlighting what they got for Christmas. Showcasing the hottest purses or electronics, the holiday season always seems to put the spotlight on material goods. Not very often do you see somebody ever mention anything beyond that. Therefore, I think it is especially important for everyone this season and moving forward, to take a minute or two and practice the simple art of gratitude.

Was it valuable time with a family member you haven’t seen in a while?  Was it enjoying some laughs with your siblings remembering that time you de-pantsed your brother in from of the whole family? Or was it just the fact that you got to sleep in a nice warm bed with a roof over your head? Even if it was something as simple as being able to wear your favorite sweater, the littlest things still count.

So go out there and get yourself a nice journal, take the 5 mins every morning or evening or whenever you have time to write down a few things you are gracious for and watch your outlook change. It’s one small step everyday to be humble. What are you waiting for?
