Gratitude, Thankfulness, Gratefulness, & Appreciation

This November, I thought it would be a perfect time to give thanks and encourage everyone else to do the same!

We are firm believers that what you put it out into the universe is what you will receive back! One of our favorite books is, The Secret by Rhonda Byrnes. If you haven’t read it, you really should.  It is a great reference to remind us of what is important and to stay positive.

In the busy world we live in today, it is so easy to forget to give gratitude.  To be grateful for what we have. To appreciate our loved ones.  To show humility.  To express Thanks.

With Thanksgiving coming,  I thought we would do a segment of posts for 30 Days of Gratitude!!  Please join us in the next month in thinking positively and expressing gratitude.  Try it with us and see if you feel better in general after a month of living more positively!

Day 21:

By now you are most likely feeling a change in yourself. You are developing the habit and way of life to be grateful and appreciate everything around you. You are beginning to see that being positive is far better than focusing on what you don’t have. Today believe in yourself and have confidence in your actions and choices. Today you will show gratitude in everything you do.

Challenge 21:

Feel amazing about what you have accomplished this far. Be your own cheerleader today! Stay Positive and show gratitude in everything you do today!

Gratitude Giveaway:

We would love to hear from any of you who choose to take this challenge with us.  Most of all, we really feel like it will make people feel better and live more positively.  But, as an extra perk, one grateful Deal Hunting Diva reader will win a $25 Amazon code at the end of the 30 days.

Complete each daily challenge and then simply post a comment telling us how you completed it. Leave a comment on each challenge you complete to earn an entry!  (Make sure to leave your email address in the contact info, so we can contact you if you are the winner) Come back every day to take this journey of gratitude with us!!

As a former teacher and librarian, it is sometimes difficult to accept my current position as a part-time cashier in a grocery as something positive. But, you know – I’m very thankful for my job – not only for the money, but the opportunity to interact with and help others. On a daily basis, I am given the opportunity to put a smile on someone’s face who might not have smiled in a while, to help someone find a specific item they need, or help someone get their groceries to their vehicle. Yes, my job is a real blessing.

My new habit of gratitude is to tell the special people in my life a “eulogy” message , e.g. something wonderful about them that normally you’d only hear people say after someone has passed on. I like to let my friends and family know specifically WHY I appreciate them, while they are able to enjoy the sentiment.

Somebody was getting on my nerves and I decided to focus on their good features. This is def a change in mindset for me!

I believe that I’m beginning to develop an attitude of gratitude and it has really helped me to feel less bummed out about things that normally would’ve lived rent-free in my mind for far too long. This IS an amazing accomplishment for me as I’ve let every perceived negative event in my life turn me into a very sullen, brooding pessimist who is so unpleasant that I don’t even want to be around myself.

Yesterday (Thanksgiving) of all days, I actually noticed this change from within. I was feeling pretty down because my brother & his family were spending the holiday elsewhere & I wasn’t invited, despite knowing I’ve no other fam within 3,000 miles. Upset I’d be left alone but even more upset that I wasn’t even in their thoughts. There’s no way to reconcile with that. Anyway, my brother did eventually invite me. I declined, of course, as I was just an afterthought, but, instead of feeling bitter, I actually felt grateful for the invite. Because I focussed solely on the fact that I was invited, I enjoyed my Thanksgiving alone rather than feeling lonely & depressed. So, Yay Me!

When I start to feel self-pity and envy others for what they have, I remember all that I DO have (such as a place to live, food to eat, clothes to wear, family and friends who love me, etc.).
