I’m grateful for snow! No matter what you think about winter, the first snowfall is always special every year. The thick, white snowflakes falling down to Earth and glimmering in the streetlights is a magical sight. I’ve got many great memories that have happened during first snowfalls and I was reminded of them during our first snow this year.
.
In Grade 12, we had a Brazilian exchange student at our school that I became very good friends with. I remember during the first snowfall, my friend and I took her outside, we made a snowman and then carried it around our town for two hours and took pictures of it in different places. IT WAS HER FIRST TIME EVER SEEING SNOW!
.
I also remember walking around on many snowy nights with a very important person in my life, talking about life, dreams, and getting to know them better. This is actually the memory that I think of every time it snows, wishing I could recreate some of these moments.
.
People can be frustrated with snow and the difficulties that it makes and some people don’t have to deal with snow. I’m asking you today, are you grateful for snow?
.
Check out today’s song in the notes below, it’s an interesting take on the “snowbirds” who are Canadians that migrate away from the snow during the winter to areas like Florida and the Caribbean. It will put a smile on your face.

I love Christmas, there’s no question about that. It’s always been a special time for my family and I look forward to it every year. However, I have to say that the buildup for Christmas this year has been different. I haven’t stepped into a store and bought anything yet. I haven’t thought of any plans for the break that I will have. I really don’t know what this Christmas holds, but I know what I want it to hold. I’m just looking forward to spending time being with people I love and that love me.
.
The excitement of opening gifts on Christmas morning has changed to me dreaming of the excitement my future kids will have doing that same thing in the presence of their family. I’m excited to teach them the real meaning of the season and that’s it’s so much more than the gifts.
.
As I get wiser, I am realizing that the things I want can’t be put on a Christmas list.

For today’s Gratitude Challenge, I’m asking you to talk to someone today that you love and tell them that. Sometimes it can be easy to go through the motions with the busyness of life and forget to say those words, but don’t make that mistake today. We aren’t guaranteed another day in this world, so be honest, tell people how you feel, and make sure they know that.
.
If you can, tell the person face-to-face, use FaceTime if you’re apart from each other, or write a handwritten letter and mail it to that person. Don’t let today pass by.
.
After all, love matters the most.

I’ve been thinking a lot about what I want this Instagram community to be. There are too many people in the world who look to further themselves for selfish desires. I’m hoping that this community becomes a place that promotes positivity, helps you find things that you’re grateful for in your life, and helps you become a better person and impact your communities.
.
Every part of me wants to see you have success. In your thoughts, relationships, finances, etc. and I believe that gratitude is key to achieving this “success”. It doesn’t matter how long we’ve known each other, if you’ve hurt me, or if we’ve never met. That doesn’t change what I want for you.
.
Thanks for being here and following Gratitude Everyday. I’ve been thinking a lot about a few changes to the account in the upcoming year that would allow us to jump into more content and styles. I’ll keep you updated if, and when, that happens.

I WANT YOU TO SUCCEED.

**Watch the TEDx talk by Jon Foreman “Live your song” by clicking the link in our account bio**
.
Last year I watched a TEDx talk done by my favourite artist Jon Foreman, lead singer of @switchfoot. The video was titled “Live Your Song” and was a mixture of song and narrative. I watched that talk again today and knew I had to share it with you. Please watch this talk by clicking the link in our account bio, you won’t regret it.
.
Jon talks about being brave and living our lives “singing truth one note at a time”.
.
But how do you live a song?
.
It begins with tuning. Prepping for what’s to come. When living your song, you’ll hit wrong notes. Move on, forget, forgive those that wrong you, become better.
.
I believe that gratitude helps us live our song in a way that we’re intended to live.
.
I dare you to move.

What a jam-packed quote with so much truth! Gratitude is so powerful and I believe helps us live the lives we were intended to live. By being grateful, we are able to recognize all that we have and live with an abundance mindset instead of a scarcity mindset, without gaining anything else. It helps us accept when things don’t go the way we wanted them to. And it can greatly change our perspective when we think about what we have in material goods.

Today is perhaps our most important post to date! Haha I’m obviously kidding, but I think it’s important to be thankful and joyful for the simple moments in our lives. They help us recognize all that we have to be grateful for even when things aren’t going well.
.
I was able to spend some time with my grandparents this evening and then went back to their house to be surprised with some amazing chocolate chip cookies! Now, I love to eat, so food usually puts a smile on my face, but these things are glorious. The recipe is a secret, and has only been shared by a few ladies in our town. It was grade 6 when I first had a bite of these special chocolate chip cookies, with one ingredient that separates them from any other. My friend’s mom would make buckets upon buckets of them before a youth group event (I’m not exaggerating…) and I’d eat the majority of them. I remember having many conversations with my mom about the cookies and trying to figure out what was so special about them. After many years of wondering, we were given the recipe, and I AM SO GRATEFUL FOR THEM! Haha
.
When my grandmother surprised me with them tonight, I was pumped! I had a huge smile on my face and it was a great way to end the day. I’m writing this 7 cookies in and realizing that was probably one, or two, too many…
.
Does your family have a “specialty” when it comes to baking?

I was contacted a few weeks ago by Chris, who started gratitudespace.com asking if I was interested in doing an interview about how “Gratitude Everyday” was started. Their goal is to “initiate gratitude into a network of over 10,000,000 people by the end of 2017” and I jumped at the opportunity.
.
My whole point of creating this platform was to create a community where people are inspired to find at least one thing every day that they are grateful for and to go into their communities and live their gratitudes out! It was really neat to see this article go live a few days ago and I finally shared it on Facebook for my friends to see what I had been working on. I’d enjoyed keeping it “quiet” and no one knew that I was the one creating this because I wanted people to follow the account because they believed in the message of gratitude. I had a few people write me and say that they followed the page because they liked the message and daily reminder it gave them and they didn’t know it was me! I was really encouraged to hear this.
.
It is nice to see the community that started just over 3 months ago growing and hopefully it is making a difference in people’s lives and communities, and it’s not just another “like” on social media without any action.
.
You can listen to our podcast on Apple Podcasts, Google Play Music, and Anchor, or find us on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube. Big things coming up in the future!

Thanks for following, this wouldn’t be a community without you!

I’ve seen a lot of motivational posts on Instagram in the past few weeks along the lines of “2018 is going to be my year!” and I feel like when we start focusing on the year ahead it can be easy to lose sight of the 27 days we have left in 2017.
.
I’m looking forward to 2018, as I feel like I have built a lot of momentum this year and have a lot of good things going for me, yet I have some pretty big goals for 2018, but I want to make sure that I finish 2017 with purpose. There is so much opportunity left for us in this year.

There are 27 days left in this year for you to encourage others, make a difference in your community, and live your gratitudes out.

I think that the human body is the coolest thing. The ability for us to eat something and then have that turned into useful energy, the ability for us to sleep and then feel rested when we wake up, and the general ability of the body to heal itself are a just a few things that amaze me about it. I’m so thankful that my body works very well even after the huge amount of training I’ve put it through. Many hours and intense stress has been inflicted upon it, and yet it bounces back.
.
I feel that our bodies are something that many of us take for granted. I encourage you to take a few minutes today and think about what you have to be grateful for.

Choose Happy. Saturday mornings are a great time of reflection for me. They usually involve a later wake up time, a workout, and a good breakfast, but I tend to move a little slower not having to rush off to work.
.
This morning I woke up with two things on my mind:
1. I have the opportunity to choose to be happy today, or not.
2. I am looking forward to the day ahead and I’m going to be super productive!
.
I’m not going to be overwhelmed by the amount of housework I have to do, the amount of work I have to do for “Gratitude Everyday”, or “The How-To Scholar”, or the huge pile of marking I need to do.
.
I stay focused and upbeat by using something called the “Pomodoro Technique”. It is where you work for 25 minutes, and then take a 5 min break. After four cycles of this, you take a 15-30 minute break. This allows me to be very purposeful with my time, while giving my body and mind the breaks it needs. Download the app called “Focus Keeper” if you’re interested in trying it!
.
What do you do to keep yourself in that “happy place”?

**Check out the new Gratitude Everyday Podcast by clicking the link in our account bio** . Choose Happy. Saturday mornings are a great time of reflection for me. They usually involve a later wake up time, a workout, and a good breakfast, but I tend to move a little slower not having to rush off to work. . This morning I woke up with two things on my mind: 1. I have the opportunity to choose to be happy today, or not. 2. I am looking forward to the day ahead and I’m going to be super productive! . I’m not going to be overwhelmed by the amount of housework I have to do, the amount of work I have to do for “Gratitude Everyday”, or “The How-To Scholar”, or the huge pile of marking I need to do. . I stay focused and upbeat by using something called the “Pomodoro Technique”. It is where you work for 25 minutes, and then take a 5 min break. After four cycles of this, you take a 15-30 minute break. This allows me to be very purposeful with my time, while giving my body and mind the breaks it needs. Download the app called “Focus Keeper” if you’re interested in trying it! . What do you do to keep yourself in that “happy place”? -@mj.wheaton .
