Being Grateful

Everyday I get caught up in the daily grind. I have my internal list of goals that I want to accomplish and I get so caught up in trying to accomplish those goals, that many times I don't stop to celebrate the goals I have accomplished. Instead I just move on to the next big thing.

So this week I have decided to give myself reminders to be grateful for the things I have. I sat down yesterday and wrote out three things that I am grateful for; one involving my personal life, one involving my Etsy store, and one involving my day job / financial situation. I dated and posted all three items above my computer, so that if I start feeling stressed by what I do not have, all I have to do is look up to see what I do have.

I realized that when we get so caught up in what we don't have, we often miss seeing the great things we do have and that leaves us with that dreaded empty feeling inside. However when we appreciate all the wonderful blessings we have, we find more blessings in our lives. That leaves us with a happy feeling of abundance.

Join with me today and write out three things you are grateful for. Post one of them in the comments on the blog if you would like.

The one blessing that I am going to post publicly today is this:

I am extremely grateful for the abundance of promotional opportunities that have come my way this week involving my Etsy Store.

Speaking of promotional opportunities: Be sure to stop by a http://aneedleinthehaystack-debbie.blogspot.com/ today and join the daily twitter tree. This is a great opportunity to increase traffic to your store.

  2. i agree we get so caught up in what we haven't done, or need to do, that we should put more focus on what we have done & what we do have. i know i'm guilty of this as well.
