As I've been watching the coverage of what has been happening in Texas after Hurricane Harvey, I feel saddened for all these people losing their homes and all their belongings.
It reminds me to not take anything for granted. We are all one and live in this world together.
It’s so important to be grateful for everything and everyone around you.
How I show gratitude is writing in my journal every night. I find three things that bring me joy each day and write them down. You can do this too. You don’t need for a major event to happen in order to realign with your soul.
Here are a few other ways to show you’re grateful for your life:
Write in a gratitude journal
Tell someone face to face how much they mean to you
Put a stickie note somewhere random that will make someone smile
Pay it forward - pay for the guy’s Starbucks who’s behind you in line
Give a anonymous donation of whatever you can afford
Make a friend their favorite meal, or share a bottle of wine together - slowly!
Open a door for someone
Leave a huge tip (no matter what the bill is)
Volunteer at an organization that speaks to you
Write a thank you card to someone special in your life
