Gratitude was a concept I had a ‘head knowledge’ of.
I knew of course that we are all supposed to be grateful and say ‘thank you.’
But I thought you were grateful when things went well or you got what you wanted
It took me a long time to realise that GRATITUDE IS A CHOICE!!
When I actively started PRACTICING Gratitude, it literally changed my life!
When gratitude stops being a ‘head concept’ and became a ‘heart concept’ there is no stopping the individual!
I saw things happen to me that I never dreamt of as I actively sought out things to be grateful for.
Gratitude for EVERYTHING… yes even for the unpleasant times…that I had experienced those toxic energy levels and knew it wasn’t for me.
Yes some things had been hurtful but thank God I went through it all, took the lessons and could now make better choices
As I saw this work for me, I believe it was a divine moment when I realised that if we could help our young ones focus on gratitude, a lot of the mental health issues they face will become extinct.
Helping our young ones see how fortunate they are, the average child has more now, than ever before yet they are so unhappy
I believe getting children to have an attitude of gratitude will go a long way to boost their mental health.
Studies have shown that journaling helps mental health. So I thought, why not get the children journaling and thinking daily of things they are grateful for. Pushing for the half-full rather than half-empty mentality.
Gratitude is a lovely emotion that attracts other lovely things to it. The more grateful you are, the more you attract things to be grateful for What’s not to like?
So friends, I am very excited to introduce my new book which will officially be launched on 27th August….Exactly one month today
The book is a storybook and gratitude journal for children that introduces the concept of gratitude to young kids. The children will be able to follow the story of a grumpy puppy called Myra as she transitions from grumpy to grateful.
This book will help all parents, teachers, children’s clubs and caregivers raise positive, mentally stable and happy children by establishing in them an attitude of gratitude.
Balanced happy children will give you the caregiver peace of mind
