100 Things I Am Grateful For

Practicing gratitude is probably one of the most important habits that one can have. It is a game-changer and will shift the way you think and feel. I know this because I started making gratitude a part of my daily routine a few years ago and it has changed my life for the better. I am still amazed how powerful spending a few minutes each day focusing on gratitude can be.

I am not going to go into how to practice gratitude in this post because I have already done so in a previous one. Instead, I am going to list some of the things that I am grateful for. It is safe to say that I have taken many of them for granted in the past. That is, until I started making gratitude part of my daily routine.
