100 Things to be grateful for

Hey love,
Even if you’re totally new to personal growth, you have probably heard of the importance of gratitude and writing down or saying out loud things you’re grateful for every day. There are actually so many beautiful things to be grateful for but I see many people struggling with this because they don’t know what exactly to be grateful for. Maybe you have also experienced this. You think “Hm, what can I be grateful for at the moment? Nothing special has happened today” The thing is that the things you’re grateful for don’t necessarily have to be big life events. It’s actually much easier, plus also more fun to be grateful for the small things.

Here are three of my favorite ways to practice gratitude:

1. Gratitude Journaling

Every morning, I like to write down six things I’m grateful for in my journal. It’s such a good start into the day.

2. Two minute gratitude “meditation”

It works like this. You sit down with your back straight, close your eyes and for two minutes, you imagine everything you’re grateful for in this moment. It’s so beautiful to visualize these things. Here are some helpful questions. What did I experience today, last week, or last month that I’m grateful for? For whom am I grateful for in my life? What do I already have? In which ways am I abundant? You’ll see that you will come up with so many things and you feel 100 times better after doing this little exercise. 

3. Gratitude in day-to-day life

Sometimes our daily lives are so busy that we get stressed and totally forget about gratitude. In these moments, you can calm your mind by simply observing your surrounding and finding things you’re grateful for. I sometimes do this when I’m driving in the car. Then I think “I’m so grateful to be alive, I’m grateful to have a car, I’m grateful for my freedom, I’m grateful for nature and everything that is surrounding me.” 

So for this post, I thought I’d give you some inspiration for 100 things to be grateful for.
I hope it will put a smile on your face and that you can see how many small things there are to be grateful for. 

Before we start with the list, I wanted to share this quote about gratitude with you that I love.

It’s not happy people who are grateful, it’s grateful people who are happy.
