The first thought that comes to mind is people/relationships. It’s a daily choice to remember NOT to take someone for granted. Show of appreciation doesn’t have to always be grand. A simple ‘thank you’, a tight hug, or kiss on the cheek goes a long way.
When it comes to things/situations, during your time of self-reflection, it’s good to consider what happened during your day from the time you awoke till the time you decided to wind down for the night. What made you smile? What did you not handle well that you make a mental note to be mindful of next time?
You know… We have so many people and things to be thankful and appreciative for even in the midst of all the craziness, the violence, the hatred… Take time each night to reflect on the goodness of God, to acknowledge how good you have it, even still!!!
