“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, and confusion to clarity. I can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend” – Melody Beattie
Why a Gratitude Journal?
Do you get sad and cranky over the little things? Crave the feeling of being enough?
Maybe you’re tired of negative thoughts and want to just start loving your life- even if it’s not perfect? Gratitude is the answer here.

The single best thing about gratitude is how easy it becomes to shift your mindset. Something bad happened? I’m grateful it’s not something worse. Had a bad day? I’m grateful that at least I had a day. Things aren’t going my way? I’m grateful just for the air to breathe.
So many things in our life go unnoticed. And so many things we’re chasing after are just not that important. What’s important is what we have here, now, this second, in this real and exact moment. Everything else is just something that already happened or something that not happened yet.
Let’s come back to present moment. Let’s be happy now.
