Mindful Monday

Last Monday, I brought to you affirmations for kids. I think if we instill empowering thoughts in children as we set the foundation of their lives, the road ahead will be much smoother and happier.

Here are the affirmations:

  1. I accept myself for who I am.
  2. I am building my future.
  3. I choose to think positively.
  4. Wonderful things are happening to me.
  5. I can do anything.
  6. It is enough to do my best.
  7. I am proud of myself.
  8. My thoughts and feelings are important.
  9. I am safe and cared for.
  10. I can ask for support.
  11. I can’t control other people, but I can control how I respond to them.

Wise Wednesday

At Gratitude, we often discuss the essential parts of human personality that can improve our society as a whole. And, we’ve always given the highest importance to empathy.

It’s what makes us do what we do. It’s the driving force of people forming beautiful relationships and experiences.

We think that if all of us develop empathy as a life skill, then days of spring are ahead of us. So, perhaps this is my love letter to empathy *winks*

Thankful Thursday

Here we had Jen with her gratitude journey. It's a story of switching the perspective and creating opportunities for yourself with an open and inquisitive mind.

"So I was in a very I was in a winter season, that it means a very difficult place before I started practicing gratitude. My mindset was one of scarcity and negative thinking due to other things that were happening in my life at the time.

I've had a writing blog ever since I was in elementary school, but I knew that my mind, you know, I consider having a restless mind. So I knew my mind had many things in it.

And, I think I was laid off from my job at the time, this was two and a half decades ago. And I went to this workshop where a person mentioned, you know, every day, you have to do a mental flush, and I thought, "That's kind of weird."

Jen’s story - A different lens
“I didn’t change, nothing changed in my life, I still was unemployed, I still was struggling. But the way that I saw things changed, and as a result of that, my whole perspective changed.”
