Thankful Thursday – Motivational Minute 417

It’s Thankful Thursday!

Today’s Motivational Minute is…


On this Thankful Thursday, I want you to take some time to take your mind off what isn’t, what you don’t have or what you didn’t get and instead focus on what you do have.  Sometimes what you have is all you need to get you through your current situation or circumstance, you just need to come to your senses and make the best of it if you can’t change it.

Even I have to be reminded that even when things don’t turn out that way we envision, there is always something to be thankful and grateful for (sending a thank you to my hubby for my reminder on yesterday).  Something happened yesterday that I wasn’t too happy about and I started to focus on why things weren’t going as planned and my husband immediately gave me words of comfort and told me not to stress it.  He said it happened, there’s nothing we can do about it, all we can do is be happy with where we are and be thankful it’s not worse.  After a few seconds, I got myself together and went on to enjoy the rest of my day.

Now once you settle your mind on what you do have and what you have to be thankful for,  I want you to write down at least 10 things that come to mind and then share them with us in the comment section here on the blog or on our facebook page.

YOUR TURN… on this Thankful Thursday, tell me what you are thankful for? Do you get your ‘panties all in a bunch’ when things don’t go your way? How do you bounce back?  Do you have people in your life to speak words of comfort and encouragement when things don’t go as planned?  Who are they?

Share your thoughts in the comments section. I would love to hear from you and so would our followers. There may be someone who just might be blessed by what you share!

Here’s to you living life IN & ON Purpose…
