You know, life is stressful!!! In so many cases, a lot of times, we’re thinking about is the negative parts of life, or the stressful things in life. Sometimes we forget to focus on the blessings or the good things that are happening around us. Even the simple things like seeing juvenile squirrels run up a tree and play, or the sounds of the frogs singing in the spring!
So in this blog I just want to talk a little bit about an activity that I really enjoy that I learned in my coaching program called the ‘blessing bowl’. I want to tell you a little bit about it in case it’s something that you might be interested in doing as well.
So the idea of a blessing bowl or could be gratitude bowl is that you’re going to focus on the good things that are happening around you. Seeing a momma and her ducks, hearing the spring peepers? Someone doing something kind for you, or something that brings a smile to your face, etc.
So if you want to select a bowl of some sort. It doesn’t have to be fancy. You can decorate the outside of it if you want (if you have kids get them involved)
It could be an old fish bowl even. It’s really up to you. just get creative on this part.
Then you’re going to get some ribbon or something that you can write on (heck you could even use rocks if you like). Use different colors if you like. I like green for example so you could even just do little felt pieces if you wanted or ribbon anything that you couldn’t write on.
So you write a blessing on them and place them in the bowl. Encourage other people to do the same!
You can do this at your job or at your home (or both). When people come in you can have it sitting in a spot they can see it and they can participate too. The more the merrier, of course.
The idea here is to look for blessings or as my husband says, ‘hunt the good stuff.’
So I hope you like this activity and love to hear from you. Why don’t you join the VIP group on Facebook and post a picture of your Blessing Bowl let me know how it’s going for you!! I love to hear from you!
