30 Days of Seeking to be Thankful in Everything - Day 1

 Day one
“Train yourself to find the blessings in everything”

Today is day one of our 30 day journey to seeking to be thankful in everything. I am already anticipating the transformations!

I know it seems rather cliché to host a thankful challenge in November, the same month as Thanksgiving.

First, I want to say that I am not doing this to build my blog, followers, or make money.

Although my motives may be selfish. I am doing this to honor a calling I feel God has been pressing on me. He has been giving me little nuggets of good and testing me to concentrate on that. Folks, let me tell you the good here has been very little lately, which is why I think God is making this so relevant in my life.

I know that this time of year is also hard for so many people, me included. 10 days from today will be a full year since my grams has been gone. The days are gloomy, social media is highlighting all the fun families have, and Christmas is around the corner and some of us know that our tree’s may not be as filled as others.

But there is one thing to be thankful for each day, sometimes it is that we get to get up in the morning, other times it is an accomplishment, and other times we have to find the gratitude in hindsight.

That is why I am doing this, because I want us to all “Train ourselves to find the blessing in everything”. I want us to change our mindset, create a habit, and take action!

So let's jump into Day 1

Topic:
Today I want to start with a memory or memories even.
Prompt:
List 1-3 memories that you are thankful for having.
Action:

Throughout the day bring them up in conversation, think about how those memories have transformed you into the person you are today.
