What are your thoughts when you first wake up?
Where's the snooze button?
Ugh, my inbox is full again!
Why didn't my post get more likes?
What am I going to do with the kids all day?
Did I pay that bill?
I'm tired of waking up tired.
Years ago, I survived a life-threatening bacterial infection following a miscarriage. Imagine waking up after being in a week-long medically induced coma. Your muscles have weakened and you have trouble walking on your own. The simplest tasks such as brushing your teeth or going pee take an enormous effort. And yet, you're grateful to be alive and you know that eventually, you'll heal.
Today, I choose to wake up with gratitude. Some mornings are tougher than others, but after almost losing my life years ago, I always find a way to start my day with gratitude.
Let me introduce myself
I’m Julie Boyer, a three-time Amazon Best Selling Author, four-time (serial) entrepreneur and a three-time Ironman finisher. I have practiced daily gratitude most of my life but surviving and waking up from a week long coma after a medical mishap, literally, changed my life.
That life-threatening experience taught me that, every single day is a gift.
What I know to be true is this; Whatever the challenge, gratitude is the answer.
As an entrepreneur and mom (who home schools her daughter), a wife with a working husband (and we share our home with my parents), gratitude, has changed my life!
My goal is to inspire you to ‘Wake Up With Gratitude’ … every day! Join me over on my podcast, Wake Up With Gratitude.
