Thankful. Grateful. Blessed.
By Daria Mitsos
It’s Sunday night and I have the chance to reflect on what was a great week.
I’m so thankful for so much. Like the opportunity to have such an amazing business and that it’s growing. There are so many women out there who struggle to make ends meet and I will continue to fight for them in some way, shape, or form. Or the fact that we were able travel in less than ideal weather this weekend and stay safe.
I’m grateful for the amazing people in my life. Friends, family, and customers. Even when I’m not the best person in the world, I have some great people who love and accept me for exactly who I am. It isn’t about being perfect, it’s about being honest and authentic. I try to be the type of person I would want to be in my own life. I respect the fact that I am able to be honest, even if it means I may unintentionally hurt their feelings by telling them something they need to know.
I am blessed by the Lord himself that gives me every single day to live. We never really think about how lucky we are to wake every day until we see someone who doesn’t get that opportunity.
When we talk about the things that bring so many problems in to our lives, it leaves the negative door wide open for more things to come in. However, when we refuse to look at the bad and focus on the good, we suddenly realize how truly blessed we are in such a world where many literally suffer daily. Keep that door open and allow blessings to come in one after the other.
I challenge you to think of three things every night before you go to sleep that you are thankful and/or grateful for. Do everything in your power to not repeat those items within a month. This exercise makes you open your eyes wide to the amazing things you’ve been blessed with in your life.
Much love my friends
