Beauty Full Mondays!! Finding Gratitude....

Happy Monday Dirty Bombshells!! This week I want to remind all of you of the power in gratitude. It's not a new concept to many of you, but for many of you, it's one you may of forgotten. I know that I personally have forgotten the simple joy of finding the things in your life that you're grateful for. I've been finding myself in a slump lately, which if you are currently in one with me, know that is such a quick downward spiral.  So how do you get out of it? Well, finding the positive in your life is a big step forward out of that slump.
The funny thing is, there is nothing so small, so unimportant, that you can't be grateful for. If you wake up in the morning after a rough nights sleep and you are thankful for coffee...well then you are grateful for coffee ;) The trick with gratitude is to whole heartedly mean it. Take a long sip of that coffee, truly taste it, and thank the heavens, the lord, another power, yourself!! that you were around to enjoy that one cup of coffee.  If you do this exercise at the end of every night, or the beginning of each day, you will find that what you dread, what you find exhausting, will slowly begin to not seem so dreadful each day.

Here are just some of the things I am grateful for today:

I combed my hair this morning and it doesn't look a mess, it looks good! So I'm thankful for a good hair day! ;)

I have a long commute, and i complain about my job ALOT...but at the end of the day I'm grateful that I have one....


I'm grateful for Halloween! It's my most favorite time of year and am so happy that I have the means and ability to celebrate it, especially when its such a frivolous holiday ;)


I have never been the type to have a ton of friends, I was never the popular kid in class, but the few I have are great ones! I am most grateful for them...


I am grateful for my mother, who has done everything and anything for me. I am grateful she is here and healthy. 

I am grateful for my bunnies, who I don't get to spend nearly enough time with. They are peaceful, cuddly little animals who just make you smile when you're around them...

So Dirty Bombshells... What are you grateful for today? Remember nothing is too small or dumb to be grateful for! 



Happy Monday! May it be Beautiful!!
