life is full of challenges- even a silly internet challenge like this #practicegratitude challenge presents its struggles. To post every day, to take a picture daily, to sit and reflect on what you are grateful for- it takes time, effort and prioritization to do this… but challenges also build character. Challenge is what gives life spice, without it we’d all live a very cardboard, Pleasantville existence.
Think of challenges that have molded you. That may, at the time, have been absolute hell on earth but now are defining moments in your life. Be grateful for how you made lemonade out of lemons, and persevered through challenge. That challenge has defined your character, and made you a better version of you!
We must never forget the importance of gratitude
Say thank you when your heart is full
And when it breaks
And when you are alone and sad
And when you dance with joy
And when things are lost
And found again
Day and night
For this incredibly beautiful, tragic gift we call life.
