5 Powerful Ways to be Positive & Grateful

Be Positive It's easy to be negative. It's easier for some people than others, but either way it is an all too common occurrence that has a significant impact on your everyday life ,but what if there was a simple solution? What if you could have more gratitude in your life by just making small changes? You will discuss 5 powerful ways to be positive and grateful. A big one is focusing on what you're grateful for. Take a moment today to think of all the things you're grateful for, even if they seem small. What are five things that you're most thankful for? It doesn't matter how big or small they are, they can all make you feel optimistic about your day and give thanks that at least there is something good in this world! God desires for you to be positive and grateful. The bible says in Ephesians 5:20 ESV "Giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ." Being thankful is powerful.

Five Powerful Ways to be Positive & Grateful One way is to keep positive people around you. When you are spending time with positive, grateful people they will rub off on you and soon your attitude towards life will be more positive as well! Another reason could be the company that we keep because every person has an impact on us whether good or bad so it's important to choose who we surround ourselves with wisely.

You should also try focusing on what you have instead of always wanting things that aren't there yet. It can transform how you feel about yourself when everything else in your world seems bleak. If all else fails just take a moment for gratitude and count your blessings, one by one until each blessing feels genuine rather than forced which means that expressing thanks won't seem like such a chore. The bible says in Philippians 4:6-7(NIV)- Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Practice gratitude on a regular basis - practice counting your blessings, even the small things like the smell of a flower or a cup of coffee from someone you love. Think about all of the possibilities that can come from each of those beautiful moments you're grateful for every day. The bible says in "Psalm 118:24 This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it."

Gratitude journals - I’ve found gratitude journals to be such a motivation and positive. It can feel so hard sometimes to think of one single thing you’re grateful for during the day, but there are so many small things. You don’t have to do this journal daily either! Maybe just every few days or so and see how it goes. Sometimes taking time and waiting for something big and specific will help you muster up more than just “I am thankful for my family.” " I am thankful for God ." "I thankful for a positive life ." Permit yourself to keep a positive and grateful posture toward your life.

Remove yourself from negative people who suck out your positivity by drawing attention to their negativity, instead of their positivity - but most importantly, remove yourself from harmful relationships or environments! It's so important to spend time around positive influences with healthy perspectives! The more time you put into being grateful for all you have at this moment, the more vitality and energy it will give back to you.

I know it can be tough to find yourself to be positive and grateful all the time. But, if you look towards God positivity will come. One way is to keep positive people around you because when we spend time with happy people our attitude towards life becomes more lighthearted as well! If all else fails just take a deep breath, count your blessings, and remind yourself why being alive matters :) Prayer For Positivity and Gratitude: Thank you for allowing me to be positive and thankful Thank you God for the positive people in my life. Thank you for all of the positive things I have and can look forward to every day. Remind me that positivity is powerful in Jesus' Name, Amen!
