Survive or Thrive

There are many challenges in daily living. Often these situations and tasks make us feel like we’re on nonstop survival mode. It’s important to survive but imperative you get to a place of thriving in your life.

Complaints, problems and tasks leave us feeling as though we have little time to get to a place for ourselves. Even if your time is limited, consider putting the focus and effort back on you.

When you put energy into your life, you’ll begin to see a thrive mindset develop. When you thrive, you’re able to grow and expand as an individual. You’ll find space in your mind and your heart for new paths in life.

Make time for you. When daily challenges become too much, put them on hold. Find a quiet space and a bit of time where you can repair and rebuild yourself into a position of thriving not simply surviving.

Rediscover Your Blessings

It’s very easy to get caught up in the difficulties of life. Take time instead to rediscover and cultivate your blessings. Even if you have few, you have many.

Do you have running water? A safe place to rest your head? A few moments of quiet to yourself? A friend? Food to eat? Can you walk? See? Simple as they may seem, someone else doesn’t have these things or abilities and someone else may have lost their life so you have freedom and privileges.

In times of worry and anxiety, rediscover your blessings. When you still your mind and keep it on things you truly can be grateful for new things can break free and enter your world. If you try to build on a crumbling foundation of your struggles, it can be shaky. Instead build on a solid foundation filled with your blessings.

We all have so much to be grateful for and if this post allows for a few minutes of gratitude, you’ll have changed the day and a little bit of the world by changing your thinking. If you practice gratitude already, you know the benefits reach far greater than yourself.

Make Your Attitude Filled with Gratitude

On a day where life can go either way, why not fill it with gratitude. We forget to be thankful in times of prosperity. Make gratitude a habit and watch things improve in your mindset.

Be grateful for every little thing you have and soon you’ll be humbled as to how much you truly have in your life and how much you’ve been blessed.

Kindness is More Than a Word

Kindness isn’t just a word. It’s an action. It takes a mere moment to change a life with kindness. I’ve been the recipient of kindness and it truly stays with me. I remember the people who were kind for no reason. You can reshape someone’s mindset simply by lending a helping hand.

I’ve found that being kind makes me feel better. It’s almost a healing effect. I attempt to choose kindness because I have no idea what any person I cross paths with might be suffering. It’s not like we all wear a sign that lists our hurts. Besides kindness is absolutely free. In a world where everything inflates in prices, kindness is free but priceless.

I don’t throw the word kindness around lightly because I have found it’s an action I choose to take. Without an act, kindness is simply a word. Enjoy this beautiful day!
