The Gratitude Journal



Today, I watched a video clip of an interview of a strong woman, who was diagnosed with breast cancer & had a left breast mastectomy, & how she's fighting through it to live a positive & happy life. She's truly inspiring & my heart was deeply touched & I cannot help but to admire her so much, she's Claire Khoo.

One thing that I was inspired of doing after watching the video clip is, writing a gratitude journal.

Yes, there are many unfortunate events that happen daily, but have we ever stop for a while & think about the many stuffs that we should be happy & being grateful about? Today, I do.

Here's my gratitude journal of the day :

1. I'm happy & grateful because I'm still breathing.
2. I'm happy & grateful because I have a beautiful family, with a loving hubby & 2 lovely kiddos.
3. I'm happy & grateful because I have 2 perfectly healthy kiddos.
4. I'm happy & grateful because hubby would bath the kiddos & get them ready to bed every night.
5. I'm happy & grateful because my hubby never try to argue with me, he tries to accommodate to all my (unreasonable) demands as best as he could.
6. I'm happy & grateful because my little boy hugged & kissed me, & told me he loves me.
7. I'm happy & grateful because I have good friends that would be there for me during my ups & downs.
8. I'm happy & grateful because I get to enjoy my daily life by doing the things I like.
9. I'm happy & grateful because despite being sleep deprived,  I'm still manage to carry out my daily chores, because I'm a mom with superpower.
10. I'm happy & grateful because hubby & the kiddos are sleeping soundly next to me.
11. I'm happy & grateful because I can greet my loved ones Good Morning every morning.
12. I'm happy & grateful because.... oops, more than10 already? I think I have so much more to be grateful about.

I never realized that I'm actually have so many things to be grateful about. happiness can be so simple, but we (I) often take things for granted, this gratitude journal reminds me of all the good things I own, not that I would have zero complaints from now on, there will always be some emotional down times for us, we're human, after all, but a gratitude journal would definitely be able to keep my spirit up during my down time.

Thanks Claire, you inspired me, I may not be writing my gratitude journal everyday, but I will do it for as much as I can, so I can constantly remind myself that I have all these beautiful things around me.

Have you write down your gratitude journal already?
