One question I get asked quite often is “Allison how do you wake up so happy in the morning”?

If you had met me 4 years ago you would have thought I was anything but happy. Even today, I wake up wanting to keep sleep in just like everyone else— but within a couple minutes I flip on the gratitude switch in my brain. We all have one, you just have to learn how to use it!

I am so grateful each and every day that God brought me out of darkness into his wonderful light. For too long I suffered with anxiety, depression and lived life just going through the motions. There was a time when I could barely pull my butt out of bed. Now, all it takes is just remembering to flip the switch.

Success and change are in your attitude and perspective!

 

Practicing gratefulness

I used to be the half empty girl, the one who was always wanting more, the one comparing herself to others. It wasn’t until I lost my mom and sat in her empty house looking around at everything she had worked so hard for that I questioned—what for?

You take nothing with you when you die… The only things left behind are the memories and relationships you made.

Don’t get me wrong I still enjoy nice things and I work hard to be able to provide those things to my family, but it’s not what matters most. What drives me is creating something I can leave behind when I am gone. It’s enjoying every moment, good or bad, and truly living in each moment. 􀃻

“For from him and through him and for him are all things “ 􀎼􀇤

“ALL THINGS”—the good, the bad, the ugly, the everyday gifts in our lives.

To cultivate my awareness I practice gratitude each day by writing down what I am grateful for.

Today it’s being able to work from home doing what I love and changing my schedule so I can have breakfast in the morning with my daughter and the hot freshly brewed coffee I get to enjoy while writing this.

What is the “so much” that God has already given you?

Take a few minutes and start your day by thanking God for the first thing that comes to your mind and try to continue doing that as the day goes on.
