Gratitude at the end of the year

In a world where life is uncertain, it is easy to forget that there are so many reasons to be grateful as the year comes to an end. It is our chance to contemplate and realize how beautiful life still is with the current changes in the world. And to set new milestones and growth and appreciating all the little things that came along in our lives. It is the perfect time to cultivate gratitude at the end of the year, to have hope, and to look ahead. 

โ€œIn ordinary life, we hardly realize that we receive a great deal more than we give and that it is only with gratitude that life becomes rich.โ€ – Deitrich Bonhoeffer

With a brand new year coming, it is time to stop dwelling on the past mistakes, failures, imperfections, and insecurities because the past is a miserable place to live in, and getting stuck is not living your best life. So, take a step back and see the beauty of who you are, what you have, and what you passionately do, and appreciate the way forward to magical moments. Have faith. 

There are so many reasons why you need to express gratitude at the end of the year. It is a moment of thought, an opportunity to be thankful for this life. 

For being alive

Waking up each day is a blessing. Being alive is the most precious thing; be grateful every waking moment. How wonderful it is to be able to see another beautiful day.

Mistakes help you to be better and improve yourself. With so many wrongs we made in our lives, it helps us steer to make the right. We learn from them and grow and make better choices.

Laughter makes us happy, from a giggle to laughing until your tummy hurts. It makes the world a better place because, without it, the world will be a sad place.

To wholly appreciate that we can still do what we want to do and explore and expand our capabilities is a blessing. Because in the end, we are all mortals.

For your heart

For all the love you can give and for pumping blood to your body and keeping you alive.

For your pain

Pain teaches us things we never thought it could. Each of us suffers from pain and hurt, and it helps us transform ourselves, and we become a stronger person. It allows you to break open from all your fears.

For your soulmate

To have your forever person beside you who understands everything you are going through in life and love. Someone who listens to your ramblings day in and day out and to celebrate you and your dreams.

grateful for your soulmate


Find the light within yourself, for doing the best you can for yourself, others, and for this planet. And for simply being who you are and touching and making a difference in the world.

grateful for yourself

It is so important to take the time to think and deem about all the little things we come across in life. And to faithfully set sail on the journey to authenticity is to embrace who you are, all the sides of you. 

Remind yourself every day of your innate wisdom, your natural strength, and your infinite beauty, and let your gratitude radiate entirely out of you. And most importantly, allow gratitude to pull you from the whirlwind of negativities and let it transform you with a new sense of purpose, meaning, and joy.

Do you practice gratitude at the end of the year to have a fresh and renewed start?

THANK YOU for being a part of my 2020 journey! I am so GRATEFUL for you!

P.S. Step out into the new year wiser, freer, and happier!
