This November, take the 30 Days of Gratitude Challenge! Just a few intentional minutes every day will make you more thankful, joyful, & healthy (inside and out)!
It’s time to get back to thankfulness with our second annual 30 Days of Gratitude Challenge! Last year’s challenge was a raging success and I can’t wait to hear your success stories this year!
Seriously, share them with me. I’m a sucker for Hallmark movies, so the more heart-warming the better.
It’s so secret that I’m a huge believer in gratitude. I’m one of those super optimistic, smiley, rainbows & butterflies kind of people…but, despite how it may seem on the outside, my thankfulness doesn’t always come easily.
There are plenty of times when I’m tempted to sink into “the dark side” of complaining, grumbling, and arguing (like just about every morning just as I’m waking up…I am most definitely not a morning person).
- I believe that you have to be intentional about cultivating a heart of thankfulness (not just expecting joy to fall into your lap or assuming that it just comes easily to some people)
- I believe that everyday gratitude is important, whether you’re struggling or floating on cloud 9 (it isn’t just reserved for the happy times in life).
- I believe that gratitude is about finding genuine delight in the Lord so that He can give you the desires of your heart (not about focusing on the things you want and being disappointed when you don’t get them on your timeline).
- I believe that gratitude is the process of finding more joy in serving others than receiving yourself.
Being able to notice and appreciate your blessings at every turn in your life gives you:
- more joy
- more peace
- more contentment
- better relationships
- more self-esteem
I have seen the power of thankfulness in my own life and I so want you to experience it, too!
It’s not something that just happens instantaneously, though. It takes intentionality and practice to cultivate a heart of gratitude.
That’s exactly why I created this 30-day challenge! Each day has a simple task that will help you to grow in thankfulness.
They may seem like little things, but each and every one of them is backed by research to improve your quality of life.
This challenge is for you if:
- you want to deepen your relationship with God
- you’re struggling to see the blessings in your life right now
- you want more joy in your life
- you want to strengthen your relationships
- you want to improve your health
Here’s what you need to do to get started:
- Make sure to like the So Very Blessed Facebook page. I’ll post each day’s challenge there, along with all kinds of other encouragement for a more joyful, more grateful, more fulfilling November.
- Print the 30 Days of Gratitude Challenge 2017 Calendar. Just follow along with the simple tasks every day of the month and don’t forget to write in your gratitude journal, even if it’s just a few words every day!
