I’m not sure what it is about this season, but there’s been a surge of people buying homes, announcing new babies, and getting engaged. Inevitably the person announcing will mention how blessed they are, and rightly so! Those are good things, and they are something for which to be grateful.
What if you are not one of the people who has any big announcement? You may still be waiting on the job, real love, having a baby, moving to a new city, or whatever else you’ve been praying about.
And what I have found is gratitude attracts more blessings, while complaining just brings more to complain about.

This is why gratitude must be a position and a daily practice that exists outside of accomplishments and material things—so we don’t fall in and out of gratefulness when circumstances are less than ideal.
In this week’s episode of the Wonderfully Made podcast, I explore gratitude and how it is connected to living a mindful life. I hope it sparks joy in you and in your daily life.
