Chelsea Crockett - GratitudeThanksgiving isn’t just a time for stuffing ourselves with turkey and pumpkin pie (although that is a plus!).  It’s a time to reflect and be grateful for all of the blessings in our lives.  However, the older I get, the more I realize that gratitude isn’t something we should only think about at this time of year.  It’s something that we should think about daily!

A person who has developed an “attitude of gratitude” is someone who thanks God for every blessing in their life.  It’s a lifestyle of thanksgiving.  So many times, we ask God for blessings….like a new car or a pet….then complain about this or that even after we get what we want. The saying “You always want what you can’t have” is an understatement nowadays!

So, will you join me in this “attitude of gratitude”?  I truly believe that every good thing comes to us from God!  We need to recognize that and try to find the good in all situations.  This lifestyle of thanksgiving shows maturity and evidence of a grateful heart.  Blessings are all around us.  Let’s start counting them!

“Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God.” Philippians 4:6.

Too Blessed to Be Stressed

Stress can consume our lives. It can make us forget about the joy that lies throughout our day.  Even the biggest blessings can get overlooked, because stress consumes our thoughts, actions, and outlook on life.  The Bible says not to be stressed or anxious about anything, but to pray and give thanksgiving to God.  We are all too blessed to be stressed!Chelsea Crockett- bible verses for stress

Have you ever been in a situation where you didn’t even realize something great happening in your life, because you were too busy stressing? Suppose it’s the night before your big test, but you were too busy fighting with your boyfriend or girlfriend to study.  When you walk into class the next day, you’re too worked up to even realize that the test was postponed.  You overlook the blessing of the test being cancelled and continue dwelling on the fight.  Small blessings can have a huge impact, even though they might seem minimal.  Every time something like this happens it’s God’s way of saying, “I’ve got your back.”

Challenge yourself to thank God more for the blessings he has put in your life rather than stress out about anything. There’s nothing on this earth that can override God’s blessings.  He is SO good!

XOXO,

It’s the Little Things in Life

We’re always told to focus on the big picture. Sometimes we even skip out on details just to get to the end of a story or finish a project faster.  The sad thing about our world today is that we live in a fast paced environment.  We live in a world where the little things don’t matter.  A simple “thank you” is even hard to find.  Believe it or not, the little things DO make a huge difference.  We just have to notice them.Chelsea Crockett- the little things

What do I mean when I say “the little things in life”? It can be as simple as holding the door or helping someone carry their groceries.  It can also be a sunny day or getting a test postponed.  We are too busy consumed by our everyday lives that we forget to notice the good things around us.  Picture this:  You wake up stressed and in a bad mood.  On your way to school there was zero traffic, it’s a bright sunny day, and you got a front row parking spot.  Walking into school, someone holds the door for you, someone compliments your outfit, and you got an A on that test you were worried about.  So far so good, right?  It’s days like these where we must appreciate the little things in life.  Yeah you might be having a bad day or bad week, but overlooking small blessings will only make you unhappier.

Next time you’re out and about, don’t only focus on your goal or the big picture, but soak in the little things. You can even make someone’s day brighter with a simple gesture.

It’s the little things in life.

XOXO,

Chelsea

Hey insiders!
I hope your day started off with many blessings!  I know our lives are filled with too many blessings to count.  Even when we are going through tough times, I try to think of everything I’m thankful for.  After all, if you can see, hear, feel, eat, sleep, drink, and breathe, then you already have seven things to thank God for.  So many people are suffering from illnesses or abuse of
many kinds.  Therefore, I try to find the good in all situations! Chelsea Crockett - Thankfulness
Sometimes I complain and focus on the negatives.  But if I take a step back, I realize there are too many things to be thankful for and that complaining isn’t a way to thank God at all.  Literally, the list is endless.  To start off  write down 20 things you are thankful for.  Throughout each week, continue to list off every blessing you find throughout the days.
An attitude of gratitude is what creates joy and peace.  Fault finding, complaining, and grumbling are not very appealing.  Don’t you want to surround yourself with thankfulness, peace, and joy?  Well, the good news is you can!  Thanksgiving, praise, and gratitude are so powerful.  Give it a try!  Spend some time focusing on everything good in your life.  You might be
surprised at what you will find!
XOXO, Chelsea
