What Can You be Happy about Right Now?

If you’re reading this, you must be having a little moment to yourself... which in a household with young children, can be quite a feat. However you managed it, congratulations!!! Whoop! Whoop! I realize you probably have only 4 1/2 minutes left, so I won’t take up all your time- just one minute.

Let’s use this one minute for a quick game of self-reflection. Look up into the sky and clear your mind. Now, in literally one minute, answer this one question: What can you be happy about RIGHT NOW?  


Sooooo, how long was your list? I promise that if you take one minute each day to add to your list, you would find it isn’t too difficult to keep it growing and growing and growing! Maybe you could put your list on the fridge, so you and your family can be reminded daily of all there is to be grateful for.  

It has been said that gratefulness is like a muscle. The more you flex it, the stronger it becomes. If you take one minute a day and set the example of appreciation for your family, imagine how strong your family could be by the end of the week, the month, the year!!!
