#30DaysofGratitude

The idea behind this hashtag is very simple: post things you’re grateful for for 30 days straight. I don’t mean one of those #blessed posts that are actually just boasting/fishing-for-compliments- posts in disguise.  Because seriously, it’s easy to add #Blessed when you’re taking a selfie on a yacht in St. Barts. But what about the dull everyday moments that you spend with your family at home? Can you count them as blessings too? When I saw people doing it last year, I thought hmm I should do it in 2016. So here we go! I know I won’t be able to keep it up, mostly because I don’t post on Sundays. But on the days when I do post on social media, I will surely post about the things I’m grateful for, to help remind myself and y’all that there’s always something to be grateful for everyday!

Posting these for the last 3 days have stimulated me to be intentional in counting my blessings and being grateful for them. It might seem hard to do so sometimes, especially when we are distracted or overwhelmed by the bad stuff that are happening in our lives. Trust me, I am not posting/writing from a good place. I have been dealing with a lot of things lately. But you know what? I am training myself to at least give thanks to God for the little things. They don’t have to be deep. You can thank Him for your family, the existence of your favorite dessert, the weather, or the fact that Cyber Monday is coming soon (which means most online sellers will offer crazy discounts on Monday, 11/28, my store included!) lol.

However you do it, make sure you promote gratitude instead of competition.

And maybe when we get so used to doing it, gratitude can become our lifestyle 🙂 Let’s give it a try, friends!
