30 Days of Thanks
With so much happening in the world today, it can be hard to find, and focus on, what’s good in our lives. We tend to set our mind and attention on what’s not happening for us instead of the simple blessings in our everyday life. On any given day, we can be affected by death, loneliness, natural disasters, joblessness, divorce, child loss, illness, incarceration… ...or what some would call LIFE in general. Yet despite it all, we still forget there is ALWAYS something to be thankful for. Detra M. Trueheart knows this story all too well. What should have been a joyous and exciting time in the fall of 2011, became one of tragedy and turmoil. In that time and space of anger, discouragement and confusion, Detra was instructed by God to shift her focus from what wasn't going as planned in her life by creating a daily log of things to be grateful for, despite her current situation. She learned that gratitude and thankfulness is not optional or coincedental; having an attitude of gratitude is intentional. In 30 Days of Thanks, Detra will take you on a journey as you learn how to: Make it a priority to be thankful on a DAILY basis, no matter what! Take a few minutes each day to think about and reflect on the very things in our lives we tend to take for granted. Shift your focus from what you’ve lost to what you still have. Embrace and celebrate how far you’ve come in your journey. No need in desiring more if you can’t be glad and grateful for where you are and what you currently have. Isn’t time you shifted your focus to cultivate an attitude of gratitude today?
