I don’t think you could do enough posts on gratitude. Really.

Without gratitude, I could easily slink away into the cracks and crevices of an imperfect life without ever noticing the beautiful already perfect world around me.

Without gratitude, my mind might try to “Re-Mind” me of ways I’m not living up to the person next door.

Without gratitude, I might slide into a permanent attitude of unfairness and “poor me syndrome.”

Without gratitude, I would perceive everything through a dark narrow lens where the shadows are always on my side.

And with Thanksgiving coming up, I can’t afford to do that. I don’t have an unlimited amount of days to use up. So I choose to be grateful instead.

In honor of the upcoming holiday, I decided to create a collage of all the wonderful things in this world that I have to be grateful for. This one requires no text. My posts are text heavy as it is.

I hope you enjoy it and that it inspires you to create your own collage of gratitude. If you do decide to make one, leave a link in the comments. I’d love to see them.

  1. Brandi, this is absolutely beautiful! Thank you for such an important reminder! I’ve compared myself and my life to others countless times. It’s still something I battle.

    Being grateful is key to a fulfilling life, because we can always want something more, bigger, better, more exciting or whatever. But realizing all the meaning in our lives, as they are, is essential.

    I LOVE that you created a collage, too. What a creative way to really express your heart.

    1. Aw thanks Margarita! I think we all grapple with this. It’s been on my to do list forever- how to be grateful no matter what’s going on.
