Gratitude Journaling Prompts

How often are you grateful? Really grateful? Down to your toes, “Gosh, I’m so darn lucky,” grateful? Hopefully you have those moments at least once a day.

Gratitude is the practice of being thankful and appreciating the little (and big!) things in your life. If you’re a member of my Facebook group, the Soulsisterhood, then you’ve probably seen my weekly #ThankfulThursday posts where I ask you to share something you’re grateful for!

It’s not always an easy thing to do, being grateful, especially when life gets difficult.

It’s hard to muster up appreciation for anything when you’re feeply depressed or you’re dealing with very real world issues.

Gratitude isn’t a band-aid we can just slap onto our lives to instantly heal everything, but it is an important tool to help you see the overall picture of your life.

I recently released Epic Gratitude on my Patreon Page. It’s a mini-ebook full of gratitude prompts designed to help you appreciate all of the best things in your life, from food, to people, to the qualities you find within yourself.

What life experience has had the biggest positive impact on you?

What are some things you can be thankful for on your hardest days?

Which stress-relieving items are you grateful for?

What do you find yourself taking for granted?

What’s something positive that happened to you today?

What qualities or talents are you thankful you have?

What’s your favorite of the gratitude journaling prompts?

    The life experience one really got me to appreciate the life I had growing up. I grew up with my older sister having mental retardation and I despised her for a long time. I always felt angry that she wasn’t the older sister I wanted and that I was always expected to take care of her. It felt unfair for so long and I developed this hate for her.

    Over time and doing your prompt, I realized that having that life experience forced me to be there for myself. It pushed me to be that older sister I wanted growing up and to be the woman I have always wanted to be. It has made me grateful for the life I have and for gaining that perspective I had from living with someone who has disabilities.

    Thank you for these journal prompts! Can’t wait to explore the other ones :)

    I love how you say that gratitude isn’t a band-aid we can just slap on to fix everything. But it helps heal your heart when you can feel gratitude, even when things are tough.
