If you are anything like me, you can fall into a funk with keep a positive life all of the time. Things happen that can cause stress in your life which can lead to negative thoughts. It can be easy for your mind to get distracted by negative thoughts and forget everything we should be grateful for.
The other funk I fall into is being grateful for the same things over and over. Yes, I am thankful for my house, my children, my husband, my family etc… you get where I am going with this. Now, it is time to find the details of those general things that I am grateful for not just my kids, etc.
One way that helps me sort through these funks is to use my ABC list. This allows my brain to open up and think outside of the box for the things that I am grateful for in my life. Some of the letters make me get very creative which helps in exercising my brain as well.
Such as… A: I am grateful for apples and that my baby girl is big enough to start eating applesauce now.
You can start off with one letter a day or a few at a time. You can go in order or skip around. In the end all that matters is that you are working on your positive life and gratitude towards what is in your life.
I created the sheets in yellow and purple to brighten your day while you write, the first link is the pdf to download, the second is a jpg:

What a fun idea! Always a good practice to take note of things to be grateful for.
I should use this as the boys writing for the summer. This would be a great way to start the day.
Oh I love this idea! I am very much a list maker and have been trying to practice gratitude more so this is practically made for me.
Oh wow! Thank you! What a cool concept! Just like you, I like all things positive and this is one that I will be implementing to stay in a place of gratitude. It will be fun to come up with my list from the alphabet. Thanks again!
Oh I will look into this. This way by thanksgiving day I don’t have to look for things that I am grateful for anymore. 🙂
This is a great idea. It is definitely easy for me to fall into the same funks as you, and a few more, LOL. I think I am going to try this ABC list!
What a fun way to make this list. We are always so busy that we forget what we are grateful. There’s always something to be grateful for

I love the idea of a gratitude list. I used to have a gratitude jar and everyday, I drop a piece of paper and written in each is my piece of thanks. This idea is equally effective.
