Gratitude Practice – Self-Gratitude

Original oil painting showing beautiful Autumn forest on canvas. Modern Impressionism


Often times we can get good at saying thank you to other people but sometimes struggle to say thank you to ourselves. This practice aims to give us all a little bit more practice at showing gratitude to ourselves. Many people struggle with their internal self-critic. Sometimes that self-critic can even have a field day by reminding us of our flaws, imperfections, and all the mistakes that we have made. Showing self-gratitude can help calm that self-critic and build us up. Look at yourself in the mirror and say, “I am thankful for myself,” or “I appreciate myself.” Use language that keeps you in first person. From here you can even become specific if you so desire. For example, “I am thankful that I have imperfects,” or “I am thankful that I have a lot of determination.” This practice may seem silly or challenging at first. Encourage yourself through that place and you will notice a difference.
