So I woke up on this beautiful Saturday morning in L.A and wanted to start my day with a new ritual of the five things I’m grateful for.
I’ve decided I wanted to start every morning doing this and see if it helps change my mood. Will it set the stage for what usually seems to be a daily challenge of, A) having too much on my plate and B) dealing with nonsense? I know everyone can relate to living a hectic lifestyle. Whether it be your career, family, health concerns, money issues or ALL of the above, life is just pretty darn stressful! Ugh. But we all have many things to be grateful for everyday.
Today, one of the things I’m grateful for is that I’m super vocal. In fact, I rarely have a problem expressing myself. Of course, it should always be done in a tasteful way, but I believe having a voice and being heard is very empowering. Often times, I find myself fighting for others who don’t feel comfortable allowing their voice to be heard. We all have different personalities and comfort zones. Not everyone is comfortable voicing their opinion or coming to the aid of someone that is afraid to speak up.
So I challenge all of you to find five things every day you are grateful for (even if it might seem like the smallest thing, for instance, running water). It’s amazing when you take a few minutes out of your day to count your blessings. It can instantly change your mood and set the tone for your entire day. After all, beauty is only skin deep, but having a beautiful soul simply radiates from within… and a little lipstick never hurt either!
