What are you grateful for? Use this grateful list to journal 50 things to be grateful for. Writing down what you are thankful or grateful for, gives you more joy during your day.
When you list even the smallest things down you are reminded during the tough times and days that you have much to be thankful for.
I challenge you to write one thing down each day and keep it in your journal or binder. Start today. Also, try the Spring Gratitude List.
Did you know that being grateful and thankful can make your body healthier? Having a joyous attitude and reminding yourself of what you do have instead of what you lack, creates health.
A joyful heart makes a cheerful face, But when the heart is sad, the spirit is broken. Prov 15:3

Being Grateful and Thankful Changes your Spirit
When we are reminded of all the gifts we have, family, a home, a car, a job, food, etc, that maybe we have taken for granted, it can put things in perspective for us.
Autumn, or Fall, is here and the weather will be cooler, we will be diving into that comfort food, Thanksgiving and all the holidays, along with decorating, this can be a time to be joyful and it can also be a sad time for others.
I would love to suggest if you know of anyone who has had a hard time this year, to reach out to them and spend some time, do a chore for them, send them a card or just give them a phone call. It can make all the difference in the world to someone. You could even print off one of the 50 Things to be Grateful For and give them to a friend.
Be true to yourself, help others, make each day your masterpiece, make friendship a fine art, drink deeply from good books – especially the Bible, build a shelter against a rainy day, give thanks for your blessings and pray for guidance every day. John Wooden
When you practice gratefulness, there is a sense of respect toward others. Dalai Lama
Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance.
Piglet noticed that even though he had a Very Small Heart, it could hold a rather large amount of Gratitude. A.A. Milne
This is a wonderful day. I’ve never seen this one before. Maya Angelou

What the world needs now is more kindness and gratitude! Thank you for making it easier to focus on gratitude with this great printable. Pinned and sharing. Thank you for linking up at Family Joy Blog Link-Up Party this week. We hope to see you back again starting Sunday at 12 EST.
Thank you so very much for this idea!!! This will be the first holiday season without my husband in 28 years, and needless to say I just want to sleep and wake up in January or February. I’m doing all I can to focus on the positive, and keep my kids doing the same. Might have to place this a few places at work also!!!

But, with the hectic hustle and bustle of life, we can often forget to slow down and take the time to appreciate the good things we have in our life. We did the work for you and found 50 simple reasons to be thankful. (Best of all: Most of them cost little to no money!) Whether it’s the mascara that gives you lashes for days or your dog’s sweet eyes when you walk through the front door, it’s the little stuff that can deliver the biggest jolt of joy. When it comes time for you to make your own gratitude list, look to these for inspiration. Yes, experts say that it’s better not to use the snooze (it steals valuable sleep time), but sometimes there’s nothing better than knowing you have five more minutes to stay curled up in bed.
