Today’s inspiration is pretty simple. We all have things to give. It’s in our essence to give back. It’s up to us to make this world a better place. Give your time. Give your talent. Give your gifts. Give your compassion. Give your love. Give your hope. Spread the word. You were born to give.
I’m going to try to keep this one short and sweet.
For the past month my facebook feed has been blowing up with gratitude posts; #day1 #gratitude, #novembergratitude and a bazillion other hashtags that I don’t care to remember.
And it pisses me off.
Gratitude is not a trend. It’s not the red headed step child only talked about in November. Please don’t get your panties in a twist if you’ve tweeted out 22 days of thanks in your Facebook feed. I am not demeaning your personal expressions gratitude. What I am doing is challenging you to be grateful every. damn. day. Not just 30 days in November.
Keep a little journal next to your bed. Each morning when you wake up write down 1-5 things you are grateful for. Join the Spreading Gratitude Facebook Group run by my dear friend, Brother Jason and post your gratitude on line.
Just PRACTICE GRATITUDE.
When this practice becomes habit weave it into your thought pattern throughout your day. As you’re stuck in traffic look out the window, be grateful for the amazing sunset, the birds flying by, the construction workers making our roads safe, the fact that you have the means to travel by car! What the fuck ever. Just Be grateful. Every. Damn. Day. <~~~~ Tweet it
