If you practice gratitude, you may enjoy this 21 Days of Gratitude exercise. It is one that I do most frequently when I am feeling stuck, blocked or financially challenged.
- At the start of every day list seven things you are grateful for.
- At the end of every day list seven additional things you are grateful for.
You may not repeat anything twice. Each day’s writing must be something you have not previously mentioned. If you miss a day during this 21-day period, you have to start over again at Day 1.
Don’t think you will be able to come up with enough things to write about? Here is a tip to get you going on the right track: Be specific about what you write. For example, If you are grateful for your mate, consider detailing all the things about him/her that bring you a sense of gratitude. Now you have a lot to write about, don’t you?
I love how this exercise allows gratitude to powerfully open our heart and mind to see how much abundance, love and joy we really have. Focusing on all the gifts and blessings in your life opens the door to attract possibilities and opportunities. Imagine putting your daily attention on all you have to inspire you to move forward rather than what you see is missing.
If you find that you want to continue going after 21 days, go for it. Living in a state of gratitude will transform your life.
Around Day 14, you may find that some things begin opening up for you.
