If you want to turn your life around try thankfulness. It will change your life mightily. ~ Gerald Good  
I'm so glad you've decided to take the 30 days of gratitude challenge. You are about toembark on a fabulous journey that will transform your life.I used to suffer from a serious case of MOD (Missing Out Disease). I was constantly lookingat what other people had and wondering why I didn't have the same things. Why was thisor that person's life so much better than mine? This was the question that I was constantlyasking myself.It was a miserable way to live. I was sad and unsatisfied all the time. I had problems withdepression and motivation. Then I decided to start looking at how blessed I was because of  what I did have, instead of focusing on what I didn't have, and it made all the difference. Ican't pinpoint the exact date I decided to start a regular gratitude practice, but I can tellyou what inspired me. A few years ago I started really studying personal development. I had dabbled in it a bitbefore that, but I didn't take anything too seriously. Then one day I discovered a TonyRobbins video online. It was a video four hour video of one of his live events. I watched theentire thing enthralled and even participated as best I could alone in my living room. This was the moment that I clearly think started a change in my life. After watching that first video I sought out Tony Robbins videos online. I studied his workand it changed me tremendously. It took a little while for things to sink in, but it was allpreparation for the moment when everything changed and I was finally able to let go of thenegativity that was holding me back.One of the things Tony Robbins suggests is doing something he refers to as the Hour of Power. Part of the daily Hour of Power practice is thinking about all of the things you aregrateful for in your life. I do this everyday now. When I don't I can see a noticeabledifference in my day.This practice of gratitude becomes even more concrete when you write it down. That's whyLovelynBettison.com
 
I decided to create the
30 Day Gratitude Journal
. They say it takes 21 days to form ahabit. If you do something everyday for 21 days it becomes part of your lifestyle. I chose tomake this practice 30 days though because that is the number of days in an average monthand nine extra days of gratitude certainly isn't going to hurt you. In fact, it is my hope thatthis will become a habit that you will continue for the rest of your life.I'm quite eco-conscious and normally I won't ask you to do this, but it is best that you printthis ebook out. Do it double-sided so you use less paper. Each day will include a quoteabout gratitude and some of my thoughts about the importance of gratitude. Below that willbe a space to write the things you are thankful for.Try to aim for five things you are grateful. Write more if you like, but try not to write anyless than five. You don't have to write anything long. Stick to a short sentence or two, oreven just one word or phrase. Try not to repeat the same things from day to day. Alwaysthink of something different. Not repeating the same things when you are practicinggratitude will help you be more conscious of the good things that happen. You will start tonotice the small joys in life that you might have skipped over before. You can be thankful for physical material things in your life, relationships, concepts andeven events that happen throughout the day. What you are thankful for is totally up to you. Iask that you always frame your
thank-yous 
in positive language. Don't be thankful thatsomething that didn't occur instead be thankful for what did occur. Our language framesour thoughts and negative language can give rise to negative thoughts. That's the last thing we want.
 When to practice gratitude?
There are no hard pressed rules about when you can practice gratitude. You should do it whenever is most convenient for you. I only ask that you do it daily.I used to practice gratitude in the morning, but these days I tend to do it at night before Igo to bed. It's a good way to reflect on my day and remember all of the good things thathave happened to me.Practice gratitude in the morning, midday, evening, or night. It doesn't matter when youpractice, it only matters that you practice.With that let's get started on a journey of thanksgiving that will ultimately transform yourlife.LovelynBettison.com
