Focus on Gratitude: 4 Questions

Gratitude is a resounding theme here on Divas With A Purpose. I can honestly say it is not always easy to keep an attitude of gratitude. It is easy during times of struggle to slip into a rut of taking things for granted.

When those moments hit you, ask yourself:

What touched me today?
Who or what inspired me today?
What made me smile today?
What’s the best thing that happened today?

Keeping a daily gratitude journal and simply answering these 4 questions can do wonders with changing your perspective. When those rough times hit, look back over your previous responses for inspiration and motivation.

Thankful Thursday

Each Thursday on Divas With A Purpose, we pause to reflect on what we’re thankful for. Gratitude is a huge part of my life. A few years ago I made a conscious decision to reflect more on what I had versus what I did not have – since then I’ve seen a considerable positive change in my attitude and demeanor even in stressful situations.

I encourage my supporters to take a moment to think about what they have to be thankful for. Feel free to share below in the comments – you never know how you’ll inspire and motivate someone else.

Make sure to join us on Mondays when we share our Making A Happy Home Moments.

Happy Thursday, Divas!

I've been practicing gratitude for a few years. The last several months I thank God multiple times a day for even little things, and negative events that give me an opportunity to grow. It's amazing how it opens you up to receive gifts from the universe in the form of free services, upgrades, new opportunities and rewarding friends.

I have not been keeping a gratitude journal, but I do keep a box of happy memories. Each time something good happens that I want to remember, I write it on a 3 x 5 card or small piece of paper and then put it in the storage box. At the end of the year I want to glue the memory cards into a scrap book, maybe add some photos and have those happy moments to look back on and enjoy forever.
