How to Use These November Sayings
Each month I bring you different seasonal quotes to inspire you to live each day to the fullest. The quotes for the month of November are no different.
However, this month is the month of gratitude and I would put that as the focus for this month.
Make a list of all the things to be grateful for.
These can be things that come from your interior life and that you can influence:
- Personal life
- Material possessions
- Physical accomplishments
But you can also be grateful for the outside riches in your life which you cannot influence:
- Spiritual world
I practice a really simple gratitude exercise each morning and it helps me set the tone for the day. You only need a small notebook and a pen and to write 5 things you are thankful for that day.
This also helps to have a retrospect for the day before. Sometimes the things I write are really basic like yesterday’s dinner, but that doesn’t matter. It’s important to come up with 5 things you are grateful for each day no matter how bad you might feel that day.
