3 Exercises that Changed My Life

Encouragement, Faith, Staying Healthy

You’ve heard it before… Everybody is different.

Let me rephrase that. Every body is different. Just like some of us like mushrooms and some of us don’t. Why is that? Because we’re different. We have different tastes, styles and quirks. We are supposed to be different. If we weren’t different, we’d be emotionless zombies like something out of a Twilight Zone episode (oops, did I just show my age?).

Make a Gratitude Jar

Faith, Just for Fun, Staying Healthy

The first year my husband and I dated we started a “Gratitude Jar”. We placed little notes in it all year long. On these notes, we wrote things we were grateful for, as well as little notes to each other and occasions we wanted to remember. On New year’s eve of that year, we opened our jar and read everything together. It was so much fun! It was especially fun one year because my husband secretly had
