It is easy to become overwhelmed with the commitments and responsibilities we have in life. In all of our rushing around we often forget to take the time to appreciate all the good, beauty, and wonder that surrounds us. By stopping for a moment and actively considering what we are grateful for, we immediately become aware of the simple things that bring us happiness and joy in our daily lives. Author and University of Houston research professor Brené Brown said, “I don’t have to chase extraordinary moments to find happiness — it’s right in front of me if I’m paying attention and practicing gratitude.”
Our brains take about 21 days to form a new habit, and 30 days to seal it. Rather than waiting for special occasions to feel gratitude and love for the wondrous people and and beauty in our lives, why not learn to find happiness and joy in every day! By partaking in 30 Days of Gratitude Challenge, you will rewire your brain to be consciously aware of all that you have to be grateful for and happy about in your life.... and as a result gratitude and happiness will become a habit.
Start your 30 Days of Gratitude today by downloading and posting this banner as your facebook cover picture. Next, take and post one photo every day for the next 30 days of someone (or something) you are grateful for in your life (in no particular order of importance). You don't need to be a photographer or even all that interested in taking photos to participate. All you need to be is interested in staying present and focusing on the things and people that inspire feelings of gratitude.
