Take one step forward
This is the time of the year when gratitude is at the forefront of our minds, however, this is something we should incorporate in our lives regularly. Psychologists often recommend keeping a gratitude journal. A couple of days a week, try recording a few things that you are truly grateful for. These things may range from simple (thankful for a warm home) to more abstract (grateful for the kindness of others). This practice is really about not taking things for granted and choosing to focus on the positives that exist in our lives. While this year our holidays will be very different because of the pandemic, it is a good reminder of how much we really value our connections, and we can challenge ourselves to stay connected to family and friends in unique ways, no matter what the circumstances are.
Just take one step forward..
“Everything can be taken from a man except one thing -the last of the human freedoms – to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.” -Viktor Frankl
