Expressing thankfulness is a quick way to keep you centered when times appear hard or difficulties arise. I challenge you to thank of everything you are thankful for and write it down. In those tough moments, take a look at your list, read it aloud and take a moment to reflect.
I am fully aware that you may be in a space where it is hard to find a reason to be thankful. Things may feels so bad that you are struggling to see the light in such darkness. Please allow me to bring the following sentences to your awareness, use them as a start and go from there, even now, even in the midst of pain and trouble.
I AM THANKFUL FOR THE ABILITY TO BE THANKFUL
I AM THANKFUL FOR THE ABILITY TO THINK
I AM THANKFUL FOR THE BREATH OF LIFE INSIDE OF MY BODY
I AM THANKFUL FOR THIS MOMENT
