This is a big part of the reason why I've gone to school for Nutrition and Health & Wellness Coaching...
Plus my mom's chronic illness (just didn't get there for my mom)...sigh.. along with my chronic ailments and my spouse's etc...
Did you know gratitude can help you make friends? Thanking a new acquaintance could more than likely open the chance to a lasting relationship…or at the very least brighten someone’s day…
Another way to practice gratitude and possibly brighten someone’s day is Gratitude Rocks… Have you ever been on a walk and saw a painted rock with an uplifting message on it? Or have you ever needed a reminder of what you are grateful for?
Now you can do the same…its really simple- just find a rock or smooth paint-able object….
Once you’ve decided on the object… paint it or them with up lifting words or short messages. Once decorated and dried you can leave them places which make rocks preferable …leaving the objects allows you to remain anonymous…or you can place them in your gardens around your house so those visiting especially during warmer months can enjoy reminders of gratitude …
Last aspect for this is making a gratitude rock for yourself to carry with you… Again a smooth rock..could even be a special rock from a special place or event or even another special object …paint your gratitude on it…then you can carry it with you or sit it on your desk or make it into a necklace etc…be creative!
Let it resonate with your heart and soul…. Gratitude is a moment that can last a lifetime!
