I appreciate being alive and am thankful for today.

Updated: Jul 1


I count my blessings to be here and pass on my gratitude passion to you all.



Welcome to appreciating yourself, being here, being in the now, present and alive. Sit back, get comfy, get your journal and pen and start reflecting!

“Gratitude turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity...it makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.” Melody Beattie

I celebrate today. Regardless of what is happening in my life, I am alive and for this I am thankful.


When I feel like today leaves something to be desired, I focus on anything I can be thankful for.


I find a part of my body that I am able to connect with and appreciate that it is there.


I pay attention to my senses and focus on one that resonates with me. I channel all of my energy through that sense and am thankful for having it.


When I am with friends and family, I feel thankful that I am alive and here to talk with them. When I am outside, I take in my wonderful surroundings as I experience nature and am so glad that I am here to experience this beauty.


I savor every breath that I take and rejoice in being alive.


Sometimes, I focus on basic things that I might have taken for granted in the past. While these things may be basic, they are also the most important and vital for my survival.


Today, I choose to notice and appreciate everything around me - large and small. Each thing I encounter, in some way, adds its own beauty to my wonderful life.
