Since January I have decided to keep a Thanks-Living Jar in my kitchen. Every day or every other day when I get home, I contemplate on the day and I write something down I am thankful for. I have learned that there is ALWAYS something to be thankful for. At the end of June I took all my thankful papers out because my little Mason Jar was getting way to full. I started to read them all and I am so glad that I have a reason to be thankful for so many different things.
I have continued my thankful contemplations each day. I believe it has made the end of my day a whole lot more peaceful. I have to admit, some days were harder to come up with something to be thankful for, but I am still breathing, my kids are healthy, I have food in my cabinet, shoes on my feet, clothes on my back, and a roof over my head. So even those hard days, when you feel there is nothing to be thankful for, you can always think of something.
I challenge you to make your own Thanks-Living jar. I believe you will reap the benefits of positive thinking.
