Be Grateful, Stay Positive And Get Your Heart Ready For 2022


Happy Monday Saints.

Last week, we started looking at the importance of counting our blessings and being thankful.

Have you started to look at everything that you can appreciate about 2021?

The ungrateful heart will find nothing to be thankful for. And as a result, it will also find very little to be hopeful for in 2022.

Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the key to overcoming the negative attitude that often comes with being ungrateful. Being grateful will also set you up for a great start to the New Year.

Make a list. Write down everything that you appreciate about 2021. It can be anything, big or small, write it down. It can be your spouse, your children, your job, your health or the fact that you can still walk.

You might be grateful for your flat or home, your car or your bus fare, your friends and your family. It could be something you achieved or are halfway through completing.

2021 definitely had its challenges but it wasn’t a complete disaster. There was some good! And once you start taking note of your blessings, your list of things to appreciate will grow.

Build a massive list – be grateful, stay positive, and start getting your heart ready for a better 2022. God bless and have an awesome week. Lots’a love,
