A few years ago I noticed that I stopped writing and being creative. I'd fallen into a rut. I woke up dreading most of my days. I put on a good front for my family and coworkers, but I just wasn't happy. I was drinking at night to help me relax and drinking coffee to kickstart my lethargic mornings.
Over one holiday my wife gave me a new bluetooth speaker for our home. It wasn't the one I wanted, so I looked at her and said "They didn't have the one I wanted?" Her expression showed me how far I'd fallen with my attitude. I knew that I needed to do something to improve my outlook on life.
I'd fallen into back into bad habits. I struggled with building habits that helped my life and my career. I started to track my overall happiness on a scale of 1-10 for a whole month. I ended the month at a 6.7 out of 10. I was expecting a better score. That's how delusional I was. It was eye opening.
I had a caring family, good job and nice home and yet I struggled to be happy. That's when I started my gratitude journal, the spark that started this journey. I now appreciate so much more of my day. It's really the little things like a cup of tea in the morning, which I usually had, but didn't have the ability to enjoy it as much as I do now.
I struggled with staying positive especially when my father passed away. My ability to feel grateful came much harder when I was losing my father. I could feel my old habits starting to creep back in. The complaining came back so easily. I challenged myself to be more grateful. I wanted to take my gratitude even a step farther. I journaled about my experience as my father was passing away. The challenge turned into a book. It's made brought he joy back into the small things and things I struggle with like a long meeting.
I want you to have a similar experience. I want you to challenge yourself to be a little more grateful for what you have in your life.
