The Attitude of Gratitude

It's all everyone loves to talk about during the month of November, but how often is it actually practiced and can it truly change your life?

I found myself early in September super stressed out. As many of you know, I love doing what I do, but there are only so many hours in a day and I've really just been building my practice as it happened for the last few years while also being mommy to my 2.5 and 7 year olds.

Now that they're a little bit older, I've felt really ready to stand in my purpose and serve those around me who need what I have to offer.

Let's be honest, life doesn't always happen as fast as you want it to!

So what's the one thing I changed and how did it affect me? I started a gratitude journal. I've been trying to get people around me to do one, and I've even kept telling myself to do one, but I always came back to - I don't have time to write for 10, 5, or even 1 minute. Or I can't come up with 10 things each day. I finally gave into my excuses and decided that I could write 3 things everyday - NO MATTER WHAT.

You know what's happened in the last 8 weeks without changing much of anything else - I feel less stress, new patients are finding their way to my phone, email, and even FB Messenger, I'm learning how to better manage my time, AND I doubled the normal number of new patients I usually see in a month.

The best part - this change literally takes about a minute to do every day.
