It all started when I was framed for something I knew nothing about while staying with my Paternal Uncle and his wife.
I was given 2 weeks by my uncle to leave his house and there was no place nor enough money for me to get a place.
However, I left the house on December 1, 2019, as instructed by my Uncle. I was lucky to have been accepted by a friend to move in with her pending when I will sort myself out. Things started going south for me staying with her. I became a shadow of myself that I started contemplating suicide, my life became chaotic and stagnant until one day, I stumbled into Gratitude Dairy on January 22, 2020, on my Appstore.
That was the turning point of my life. At first, it was the JOURNAL that made me appreciate life the more. I started writing down all my pains, hurts, how and what I feel about life. My gratitude journal made me see life from a different perspective. It taught me how to be happy and appreciate life, writing down everything in positive terms. I learned to be super grateful, thankful, and happy with life and what it gave me. I have learned to count my blessings and name them one by one. I have learned to focus on the brighter side of anything that happens to me instead of complaining about them.
They later added AFFIRMATIONS and DAILY ZEN to the gratitude diary. I made it a point of duty for me to always tell myself positive things. I also write down the affirmations and also reaffirm them on the slide share page. Since I started using this gratitude diary everything about me has changed for the best. I have never missed a day of sharing the DAILY ZEN on my social media handles and I believe that it has helped so many people.
I observed from their comments that this is a hope for them, especially this trying time. I am also very grateful for the 7 days Gratitude Challenge that was introduced in December 2020 followed by the 14 days Challenge. I am happy with the 21 days challenge that ushered us into 2021.
Gratitude App made a huge impact on my life. I am happier, Optimistic, loving, caring, and more mindful of what I say to myself and others. I have stopped dwelling on bad situations but only see the brighter side of everything against all odds. Gratitude App has become an antidote for me. It helps me heal very fast with the reminder that powers my day. I love the QUOTES and LIFE HACKS that were added to DAILY ZEN on the 14th of January which was my birthday. It made my birthday beautiful with lots of memories that should keep me going.
Thank you to Pritesh and the Gratitude App Team for the Tremendous work you have done in my life. I will forever be grateful even for the little things around me.
