Start of Lent – thankfulness!

life coaching thankful career
Yesterday saw the start of Lent, the 40 day countdown to Easter. Traditionally, it’s a time of penance and sacrifice. However, it’s also enough time to get a new habit embedded strongly in your life.

Last year, I decided to stop watching television for Lent. It was a time of relaxing with books and time telephoning friends instead of TV.

This year, I decided to add something. Thankfulness. It is easy to notice the things in life which aren’t going according to plan. But so much more uplifting to notice the positives.

So, each day, I plan to consciously be thankful for three things. Small things like a midmorning real coffee, big things like a great friendship.

What are you thankful for today?
