We have so much to be thankful for in life. So many times we only look at the negative instead of the positive. We complain rather than be thankful for the life we have. I know I am guilty of this mindset. I can think of more negative things than positive that has happened in my life. It is harder to stop and think about the good when life is chaotic and unfair.
BUT here is a challenge for you to change your thoughts to be positive and see the good in your life! Get a jar and decorate it as you please and call it your “thankful jar”. Each week write something you are thankful for and date it. Put the piece of paper in the jar. At the end of the year, read everything you were thankful for this year.
I encourage you to do this challenge with a friend, spouse, or co-worker. This will help you be accountable to continue to be thankful each week. If you feel comfortable, swap your “thankful jar” with the person who is doing the challenge with you and read each other’s encouragements.
Year 2016 focus on the positive in your life rather than the negative! I encourage you to remember how good God is even when life is not going your way.
