Hey y'all! It is finally here, my 31 Day Gratitude Challenge! I am so excited to embark on this journey with you. I can’t wait to get started, can you?
So before we jump into it, I want to start off by explaining where this idea came from. I get asked all the time how I stay positive the majority of the time (this question gets asked by everyone). So, I started thinking…how do I stay positive? The answer was simple, I am grateful for where I am and where I have been. While I am not perfect at it, I practice gratitude regularly enough to where I am in a positive mindset most of the time. I am grateful for my past experiences (good and bad because I understand that they are ALL lessons) and I am grateful for my accomplishments.
Another thing I do is practice self reflection (I have become a master at checking myself). I'm constantly thinking about what I have accomplished (or haven’t accomplished) and doing so really helps me to see the good. I see all of the amazing things I have done on my own and even where I have failed. Doing this makes me, you guessed it, feel grateful for the times in which I achieved. Wanna try it out? That’s where the 31 Day Gratitude Challenge comes in to play.
What type of challenge is this?
This is a month long practice of gratitude. During this time we practice being present for a few minutes a day. This is a challenge to slow down and reflect on all of the amazing things you are doing.
The idea is simple, every morning for the next 31 days (preferably starting January 1st) you will begin the day by answering the first "Morning" question. Each day has a "Daily Action" that you must follow that day. Each evening you will answer the second question ("I am grateful for"). It doesn't have to be anything huge, something as, "I am grateful for the banana I ate this morning" is fine. That’s practicing gratitude! It’s so easy to do and once you start being grateful for the little things, you might notice that you are naturally being more grateful for more.
How do I join in?
It’s so easy. Just click on the link below and download your free worksheets and print them or you can write your answers in your personal journal, share it on Instagram using the hashtag, #HLJGratitudeChallenge! I will also be taking part in this challenge on my own Instagram so if you want to follow my 31 days, feel free to follow me here or you can follow on Facebook here.
What’s the point?
There is an understanding that the universe conspires on our behalf and being grateful aligns us with our purpose. The hope is that at the end of these 31 days, we will find ourselves feeling more uplifted, full of appreciation for our lives, and we'll continue the course of our true purpose.
I am soooo excited to be doing this with y'all. I hope that you want to join in with me on this 31 day journey. Hopefully by the end of it, we see differences in our mindsets, our attitudes, and our overall energy. How do you like to practice gratitude?
Peace & Blessings,
