Thursday Thankful List

Morning, queens! I hope your Thursday is very positive & starting off well. Today, I want you to think about choices. Within the first few hours of waking up, you choose whether or not to press “Snooze”, what to wear, whether or not to do your hair, what to have for breakfast, what time to leave the house, whether or not you need a second cup of coffee or not. Choices; we are bombarded with them on a daily/hourly/minute-by-minute basis! It’s so easy to remember that we have direct control over these simple choices. Sometimes, it’s a lot harder to remember another very basic choice: whether or not we will choose to be thankful.

By “be thankful” I mean more than saying thank you. I mean choosing to actively and completely live life out of thankfulness and gratitude. I mean choosing to appreciate all things, all people. I mean choosing to focus on the wonderful things {whether or not they are small or not!} rather than complain about something else. I mean choosing to approach the day with a positive, thankful spirit rather than be ruled by negativity, pessimism and ungratefulness. Just like we have the choice whether to wear heels, flats or whatever your go-to shoe might be, we must consciously CHOOSE to live out our thankfulness.

That’s what I’m doing today; hope you do the same! In the meantime, here’s a few things I’m thankful for! xx
