I touch on gratitude on a regular basis because it was such a game changer for me. For the longest time I had been focusing on my “problems” or on what I thought was lacking in my life. I had been causing myself so much stress without even realizing it.

In addition to this I had been robbing myself of joy because I rarely took in the fact that I was extremely blessed.

It was only when I was a true moment of darkness in my life that I realized how lucky I really was.

Ironically it took suffering to notice all the gifts that were already right there and it’s thanks to that mindset shift, that breakthrough that I finally started to see the light.

Since then, I’ve never looked back and I’m so thankful I had that challenging period to eventually live my life in a very different way.

Sure, I have off days like everyone but it’s actually on those days that I try to focus on gratitude the most.

It’s when we are down in the dumps especially that gratitude can be that ladder that helps us climb out of the darkness. I start every morning and finish every day by being thankful for what life is offering me.

Whether it’s my health, a great meal, an amazing workout, fun times with friends, my breath or any other precious blessing, I make sure I acknowledge them every day.

Wishing you a wonderful Sunday where you take a gratitude pause (or two) and notice just how good this simple practice makes you feel.

Happy Sunday my lovelies!
