During this pandemic we are asked to do things to keep ourselves and others safe, wear a mask, social distance and avoid crowds. We are social creatures and many of us are having difficulty embracing our alone time. 

Its time to dig deep within yourself and find gratitude in the small things.  We create our own reality no matter what is going on externally.  Focus on what you have, not what you do not have.  For those who have children at home, I am sure you have a new appreciation for teachers and the jobs they do.  

Be deliberate and practice gratitude.  It will change who you are and make you more appreciative for people, places and things in your life.  Start a gratitude journey.  Before going to bed, reflect on the day to show gratitude and appreciation for the days events and the people you encountered. 

Always remember, it could be worse, no matter what your issue is.  Someone is experiencing something far worse than you could ever imagine. 

Take some time and take an inventory of what you are grateful for.  This exercise opens up space for you to receive additional abundance in your life.
