Motivation Monday

Honestly, it's really easy now and days to get caught up in so much materialistic things that we forget about the simple ones. We forget that it's a blessing to wake up in the morning, we forget that it's a blessing to be healthy and well. I don't know about you but I definitely need a reality check every once in awhile to get myself back in line. There are things that are so simple and so beneficial for us that you'd be surprised at the fact that why don't we do it more often? Being grateful for the simplest things can be so rewarding and it's something that I want to practice this year.
When I first read this quote, it hit me hard! I get so caught up in the things that don't matter that I forget to be thankful for the things I already have. Do I express gratitude for the roof over my head? Food in my stomach? The fact that I have a good paying job and get to drive around in my own car? If you're normal and human like me, you probably forget that these simple things we do everyday are ALSO privileges that not everyone can say they have. So, I challenge you to be thankful for EVERYTHING and ANYTHING this year. Be grateful for the hot water you get to take a shower with, the clean water that you are able to brush your teeth with, the warm blankets you get to sleep with at night, your health, the clean air we breathe, access to clean water, and my list can literally go on. You see, the more I express my gratefulness, the more things I think to be grateful for. And the more thankful you are, the more the Universe will keep supplying you with. So, what are you thankful for today?
