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 25:

When we approach a challenge in our lives we can become discouraged. Today I will take those challenges and appreciate what they can teach me. I will be grateful for being pushed out of my comfort zone to overcome these obstacles.

Challenge 25:

As you approach a challenge today view it as a lesson and not a stress. Find what you can learn and achieve from this challenge. Take the lesson and be grateful for what you have learned. Be grateful for what you were able to overcome and achieve.

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!!

Were you able to find the positive in a challenge today? 

Leave a comment below!

Just coming aboard?  You can start today!  No worries.  The point is to live with more gratitude.  See the rest of the Gratitude Challenge and join us.

 Be sure to leave a comment for your entry!!

I’m not sure if this is referring to life’s daily little irritating obstacles that have served only to continually remind me that life is full of little irritating obstacles every single day, or are we talking about encountering bigger challenges like being told you’re going to die within a couple of years, losing the ability to work, having your dog taken away, forced to leave your home while losing all of your personal belongings, except your vintage Corvette only to be completely totaled a month later?

Hmm, well, I think that the most important lesson I’ve learned from all challenges big & small is the same lesson I’m either forced to continuously remind myself or I’m continuously relearning. The lesson is that Things Just Happen & it’s not personal. If a tree falls in the woods, it just happens. If a tree falls onto your car, it also, just happens. The latter is perceived as a bad event because your car was destroyed, but its illogical (& a bit egotistical) to think this bad event happened TO YOU. God didn’t let bad stuff happen to you, nothing bad was directed at you. It was something, neither good or bad, that just happened.
So, when I had to walk somewhere today & it started to rain so hard that I couldn’t see in front of me so I stubbed my toe really hard on the sidewalk & I looked a mess not only from the rain but also the snot pouring outta my nose from crying over my hurt toe, I told myself that it sucks, but its not about me. And, at least I kept my cell dry!
