Today I was asked how I manage to make time to keep up with my daily blog. In truth, the routine has been cemented into my brain. I do my best to be consistent but there are times the blog gets posted an hour (or more) later than when I usually post. I don’t always write a huge blurb about the importance of gratitude or a life lesson that’s been on my mind, but the process still takes some time.
Writing my blog right before I fall asleep works for a couple reasons. The easy explanation is my blog gets to include every ounce of gratitude I can squeeze out from the past 24 hours. That made the most sense before I started. What I didn’t anticipate was how it would make me feel as I ended my day and as I start the next one. Regardless of what may have been bothering me from work, an anxious thought, or something with my friends, I have gratitude to clear my mind. It’s helped me let go of any negativity I was holding on to and start my next day with a positive outlook. Each new sunrise brings change and gratitude has helped me embrace that fact.
