๐™’๐™๐™–๐™ฉ ๐™–๐™ง๐™š ๐™ฎ๐™ค๐™ช ๐™œ๐™ง๐™–๐™ฉ๐™š๐™›๐™ช๐™ก ๐™›๐™ค๐™ง?


Itโ€™s likely youโ€™ve been asked this question many times, and itโ€™s likely youโ€™ve responded with things you are truly grateful for.โฃ


But have you ever answered that question with a list of things about ๐™ฎ๐™ค๐™ช๐™ง๐™จ๐™š๐™ก๐™› that you are grateful for? I know this ๐™๐™–๐™จ ๐™ฃ๐™ค๐™ฉ been something I've practiced until recently. I could list names of all the people and things I am grateful for (external), yet rarely--if ever--expressed gratitude for myself, until now. ๐˜ผ๐™ฃ๐™™ ๐™ž๐™ฉ ๐™ก๐™ค๐™ค๐™ ๐™จ ๐™จ๐™ค๐™ข๐™š๐™ฉ๐™๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™œ ๐™ก๐™ž๐™ ๐™š ๐™ฉ๐™๐™ž๐™จ...โฃ


๐™„ ๐™–๐™ข ๐™œ๐™ง๐™–๐™ฉ๐™š๐™›๐™ช๐™ก...

โ€”for a body that communicates and alerts me when I should rest, when I should eat, when I should hydrate. โฃ

โ€”for the emotional, spiritual, and physical transformations I am choosing to experienceโฃ

โ€”for challenging myself to create empowering thoughts ๐™ซ๐™จ ones that sabotage my happinessโฃ

โ€”for saying no to things that no longer serve me and saying yes to things that doโฃ

โ€”that I choose to honor my body with movement, nourishment, and rest as an act of ๐™จ๐™š๐™ก๐™›-๐™ก๐™ค๐™ซ๐™š and ๐™จ๐™š๐™ก๐™›-๐™˜๐™–๐™ง๐™šโฃ

โ€”that I choose to feed my mind with healthy, enriching content that inspires, encourages, motivates and sets me into action โฃ

โ€”that I choose to set healthy boundaries to honor my space and my timeโฃ

โ€”for setting higher standards, ones that honor my needs, my health, my emotional state โฃ

โ€”for choosing the difficult roads, without complete certainty, and dancing with fear by accepting a "knowing" that they are the necessary paths to take.โฃ


This isn't an exhaustive list by any means, but it's enough to remind me that I get to choose my happiness by putting my energy into the things & people that serve me well too.โฃ


So, my friends, what choices have you made for yourself that you are grateful for? Share them below or DM me for privacy.โฃ
