What a world that we live in where we have so much to be thankful for! If you truly stop to think about your life, the list could go on for miles about everything awesome that you have around you. We all experience hiccups along the way and that’s normal.

But the underlying factor that is true for each and every one of us is that we all have so much to be thankful for. We have a roof over our heads, food in front of us and a place to lie down. More importantly, we have family and friends who we adore and who equally adore us.

 

Planning a 7 Day Thankfulness Challenge

When’s the last time that you really slowed down your day, your thoughts and your emotions and  acknowledged how lucky you are in the life that you have? It’s something that we all take for granted each and every day.

Being able to wake up, see the sunrise, spend time with family and friends, and do what we want with our days and our time are just a few quick items that we are all probably pretty thankful for.

Talk to your family about everybody agreeing to a 7-day thankful challenge. Explain to them that the point of the challenge is to have a theme each and every day of something, as a family, to be thankful for. Once the days are planned, everyone in the family is expected to participate. Showing thanks each and every day is part of the challenge, so it’s up to each family member to decide the most appropriate way to show how they are thankful.

Plan out what you want to focus on to be thankful for each of the 7 days. The choices are yours, but here are a few options to consider for the 7-day thankful challenge.

Day 1: Thankful for Family– Why not start the challenge off on the right foot by being thankful for the family who is embarking on this journey together? Give thanks to those who are with you on this challenge and every day in life.

Day 2: Thankful for Friends– Reach out to your friends that you talk to all the time and let them know what they mean to you. Also, reach out and reconnect with those friends who you may have lost touch with. Showing them that you are thankful for them will mean a lot to them and to you! There is nothing like the shoulder of a friend to lean on when days are tough.

Day 3: Thankful for the Kindness of Strangers– We’ve all been there, right? Out of the blue, a random stranger has done something nice for us when we were least expecting it? Simple things like holding open a door, giving the greeting of the day as we are walking down the street, paying for our meals, or holding an elevator when we’re in a hurry. Simple gestures go a long way in making someone’s day, so why not use this day as a day to show strangers that you are thankful for their kindness? You can do this by saying “Thank you,” or by paying it forward.

Day 4: Thankful for Health – Give thanks for the doctors and nurses out there who work hard day in and day out to make certain that we are all staying active, happy and healthy.

Day 5: Thankful for Freedom – Isn’t it wonderful that we can live in a place where we have rights? Talk about something to be thankful for each and every day. What gestures of appreciation can you show?

Day 6: Thankful for Happiness – Shine that happiness to others so that they can know how happy you truly feel. Happiness can be contagious, so spread it to others who may need to add a smile to their day!

Day 7: Thankful for Choices– In life, we all get to make our own choices. Hopefully those will line up with the Word. Having the choice though is surely something to be pretty thankful for?
