a traveling Wife: Super Human Powers

Super Human Powers

Monday, February 2, 2015

If you could have any super power, what would it be? Would you want to be able to fly, be able to know someone's every thoughts, have x-ray vision, be invisible? Would you want your super power to be a healthier person, a happier person, less stressed, have more energy? You could have all of this with the power of gratitude.

If you can recall, I opted to not make any New Year's Resolutions for 2015. Rather, I made a list of some reminders to push myself in the right direction. The direction that I want my life to go. A few of these reminders include being gracious and humble, laugh and love, enjoy nature, and be myself.

I am participating in a Gratitude Challenge for February in hopes to bring these reminders for 2015 to the forefront of my thoughts. I will challenge myself each day to compile my thoughts and feelings as to why I am grateful. I will also participate in the daily questions or prompts that are provided in the Gratitude Challenge.

Yesterday's prompt was why I accepted the challenge and what I hope to gain. I want my life to head in a particular direction and I think I can achieve this with positive thoughts. Research shows many positive effects to positive thinking and the power of gratitude.

One source states that having a grateful outlook could result in;

- Feeling better about your life as a whole
- Getting sick less
- Leads to more frequent exercising
- Having more energy and focus
- Sleeping better
- Experiencing less stress
And so much more great things.

Do you keep a gratitude journal or do you reflect about the positives in your life? How has it changed your daily outlook on life?


  1. Finding the positive is something I struggle with daily. I have always been more pessimistic and seem to think the world is "out to get me" as my husband puts it a lot.

  2. I would have laughed at the a couple of years ago, but since focusing on being more positive a lot of good has happened!

    1. Good for you, Laura! Often, if we clear our mind of negativity, good things will happen. :)
