The Grateful Journey
A little more than a week ago, many of us spent time in fellowship with our friends and family, eating, catching up on all things new and sharing all that we are thankful for. Then many of us left dinner tables, and headed straight to shopping malls to buy MORE THINGS. Isn’t it ironic? We immediately forget about the many things we already have to be thankful for and run out with, cash, credit/debit, or check in hand to stock up on MORE things.
During this time of year that is supposed to be full of cheer, joy, love, peace, and yes, thanksgiving so many of us find ourselves feeling down, depressed, and unfulfilled. In many cases these feelings are directly related to our ability or inability to purchase the gifts that we feel that our loved ones deserve, want and need. To this I say: ENOUGH is ENOUGH!
I challenge you to embrace, and enjoy this holiday season with a heart full of thanks and gratitude, and encourage your family and friends to do the same! Start a grateful journey, and keep a grateful journal along the way. What is the grateful journey? On the grateful journey you end each day naming three things that you are grateful for, and you NEVER repeat them. You will be amazed at how much you are thankful for, and how much less you feel that you and your family needs! If you have children, take some time every night and discuss the grateful journey as a family, over dinner, or just during your family time in the evenings. The journal is an added bonus. If you create a grateful journal, then you can go back and reflect over time, all that you have to be thankful for.
The grateful journey is not meant to replace your daily devotional time, meditation or prayers of thanksgiving by any means. However an extension of the way you count your abundance of blessings.
Please, share your grateful journeys here as well!
