#thankfultuesday - Thankful People Are Happy

It is not happy people who are thankful. It is thankful people who are happy.

I don't know about you but I really want to be happy. I started this series back in October on a whim because of a status I saw on Facebook. I've missed a few weeks here and there. But overall it has made a huge difference in my attitude. I've been much happier in my daily life as I take the time to write down what I'm grateful for. 

Something I highly recommend is a gratitude journal. I have one next to my bed and I try to write in it a couple times a week. Especially on those days where you feel like nothing went right. It forces you to look and see the good things that are happening, even if those things are really small. Do you have a gratitude journal?

I'm grateful....

1. For the 42 kids who showed up to my choir practice on Sunday and worked really hard to learn the song we will be performing.

2. For the new soccer team I'm on, even if it means I can't walk a few days out of the week.

3. For summer dresses and sandals. I might just make my whole closet dresses and sandals.

4. For inspiration. It helps me learn and grow.

5. For my friend who sent me a brand new long board!!!

6. For my Mother who comes to my choir practice even if I only need help for about five minutes of it.

7. For my friends who turn to me for help. It amazes me that they trust me with their struggles.

8. For lunch breaks that turn into naps at the park.

9. For my new camera!! (Photo challenge posts coming soon!!)

10. That I've learned to be grateful. It has changed my life.

What are you grateful for this week?

  1. Where do you get your summer dresses? I am in a serious dress rut because I have no idea where to find modest dresses that are actually cute. Which means I just end up wearing pants all summer because I hate long shorts. It's a struggle.

    1. Recently I've found them at Old Navy but the trick is this. Just buy them a size bigger and put a cute belt with it. Baggy is in style and it makes the dress longer. Also check out @poppyanddot on Instagram. They have a lot of cute modest dresses!
