Do you want to know the number one theme amongst the most successful people? Being in a state of gratefulness. This is the number one answer I hear over and over again on the top business podcasts I listen to. They’re often focused on being in a state of gratefulness in order to produce and remain effective. It’s the state of mind I have learned to wake up in every single day because let me tell you, my life hasn’t always been butterflies and rainbows. (And it still isn’t.) Today, on mrsprofresh.com, I am sharing 20 things to be grateful for today.
I encourage you to read these statements out loud, if possible. If you have journal, even better. Write down the below listed things or come up with your own.
- I am grateful for the breath in my lungs.
- I am grateful for my limbs, joints, and organs.
- I am grateful for my bones, whether weak or strong, I am thankful to have them.

The truth is, there is so much to be thankful for – things we often take for granted because they’ve become a part of our everyday lives. As the day goes on, I hope you lean on the things you are grateful for instead of amplifying the bad.
