#thankfultuesday - Find Happiness


This quote is exactly why I started #thankfultuesday. I had a simple experience where I felt real happiness when I was truly grateful. I wanted to feel that way all the time, so I decided I needed to express gratitude regularly. 

I've found from doing this series that I look for opportunities to be grateful, and in the process I have become happier than I've ever been. I find happiness and joy even admits the hard days. 

That is why I challenge each of you to start taking the opportunity at least once a week to write down what you were grateful for that week. I promise you'll be happier. If you're not, I owe you dinner. 

I'm grateful....

1. For the chance I got Friday night with a friend to make cookies and deliver it to people anonymously. 

2. For the uplifting words I heard at church on Sunday, even though I was exhausted.

3. For the faith one of my friends, all the way from Brazil, has in me.

4. For my mother who takes every single one of my calls and helps me through so much even when she is out of town.

5. For my father who will listen to me complain and complain and never walks away.

6. For a relaxing night where I get to watch the NCAA National Championship, even if my team isn't winning.

7. For a fun Saturday with friends. Watching football, playing laser tag, singing our hearts out and watching laser shows.

8. For the friend who reminded me to watch a talk from a Church leader last night. The talk helped me make a change I've been needing to make for a long time.

9. To be able to go to the temple on Saturday. To be able to just forget about my problems and just feel peace.

10. That I got 3rd place out of 21 players in laser tag. I love laser tag. 

What are you grateful for?
