Life has a way of beating us up and wearing us down- It's easy to focus on the struggle and forget all the reasons we should be happy and grateful. I try to maintain a positive outlook, but for the past 2 years my life circumstances have made happiness hard. One thing I always remember is: we've all got bruises. I love this song, Bruises - by Train and Ashley Monroe. Sometimes I find it sad and other times I find it comforting.
Regardless, I'm doing my best each day to focus my mindset on the many reasons I should be grateful and not sad.
I'm linking up with Ember Grey and focusing on a grateful heart. So my tip is:
When you are feeling as if your struggles outweigh your blessings, take a moment for mindfulness.
Take a few deep breaths, be mindful of your blessings, make a list and post them where they are easy to see- I bet you will surprise yourself with how many you come up with!
