I woke up this morning, after a rough night of sleep. For some reason I was restless, and the birds were chirping at 3am as if to say, we’re up too, come join us! When I woke again, it was almost 8am and I found myself filled with gratitude.
I am grateful for sleep.
I am grateful for my family.
I am grateful for the geese.
I am grateful for this day.
To rise each day with gratitude means to begin each day filled with possibility.
If you’re anything like me, many days begin with you feeling like you are already behind, playing catch to a list of obligations, musts, and shoulds. When that is your starting point, it becomes much more difficult to shine your light and be the best version of yourself that you can be.
Gratitude goes much deeper than a powerful way to begin your day, and that’s why I’m excited to be offering Growing with Gratitude in the Rise and Shine Giveaway that runs through May 2nd. I am one of 25 women offering our gifts to you so that you can rise each morning, believing fully in the possibility that is you.
You can check out the giveaway here and choose your gifts, finding the ones that resonate most.
Here are a few that I’ve grabbed for myself:

The Story of Stuck from Nancy J. Pigno
7 Real World Steps to Embracing Your Intuitive Gifts from Jessica Lee
After you look through the gifts, come back here and leave a comment letting me know which ones most inspire you to rise and shine!
Peace, Love, and Wellness,
What a wonderful reminder to begin the day with gratitude. I love how you mentioned that this enables you to start the day full of possibility rather than negative thinking. Thank you for the post!
Living gratitude is such a rewarding path. Thanks for affirming : To give gratitude each morning allows for possibilities to manifest themselves. Once the possibility presents itself, it is up to us to nurture it into existence.
