3O Days of Gratitude to Change Your Life

Image from whatislistening.com

Are you ready to change your life?  Are you ready to attract things that make you smile, that improve your health, that attract better jobs and relationships, that make you laugh, that fill your bank account with money and your heart with love and gladness?

If your answer is yes, then read on!

I’m a big believer in counting my Blessings.  In fact, during some of the harder parts of my life thus far, I am convinced that this is the one thing that got me through and out the other side.  The more I have embraced gratitude, the more I have noticed miracles and abundance turning up in my life.

Gratitude has become such a natural part of my life that I forget others might struggle with this concept, or perhaps not even understand it at all.

I decided to create this free 30 Day Gratitude Program in response to a person whose life is becoming increasingly broken as they complain bitterly about how awful it is. Today they asked me for help, and this 30 day challenge is my answer to them.

I promise that if you follow these simple instructions too, within 30 days you’ll start to see results.

Psychologists have found a link between gratitude and well-being. Studies have shown that when a person is depressed, anxious, negative and directionless, they can take control of these emotions and begin to turn them around themselves through a daily practice of finding things to be grateful for in their everyday life. The practice of gratitude literally has the capacity to rewire our brains, firing off more of our feel-good emotions and thinking patterns.  It helps us to remember who we are, what makes us happy, and where we want to go in life.

Conversely, when we focus on complaints, unhappiness and wrongs in our lives, we generate even more feelings of inadequacy, anger, frustration, depression and resentment. None of those energies are good for our health and well-being. It also makes us much less fun to be around.

Of course, in my world, I don’t see this as mere psychology.  I see this as the Law of Attraction in action.  Quite simply, whatever we think about, and attach emotion to, we draw into our lives.  Our thoughts and emotions are magnetic to things of similar energy.

If your life isn’t turning out to your satisfaction, maybe it’s time to tune in to what you are thinking, and make some positive changes.

If you’d like to join me in this challenge, here’s what you need to do:

  1. Find yourself a journal or notebook (yes you can use your computer or ipad etc if that works for you).
  2. Find yourself a gratitude rock.  This is a stone small enough to fit into your hand.  It can be a crystal or an ordinary garden variety rock. Choose what feels good to you.
  3. Set aside ten minutes each morning to read the daily challenge and about ten minutes during the day to work through your daily activity.

There will be a variety of activities, as well as some meditations. None of it will be hard.  Some of it will actually be fun.  And all of it will be working to shift your vibration and make you more magnetic to good in your life.

Want to join me?  If you’re up for it, leave me a comment below.  Let’s make this a giant Gratitude Party.  Feel free to invite your friends too.  The more we create a positive intention and vibration, the more it affects everyone and everything around us in magical ways – and that’s the definition of a Lightworker!

Lastly, write the following pledge in your journal.  When it’s written, repeat it out loud, with as much sincerity as you can muster. That way the Universe is put on notice of your intentions.

Dear Universe,

I am open to the possibility that there is more for me in this life, and I am ready to receive these Blessings by offering my thanks and gratitude in reciprocation.

I am so very grateful for my life, and for the learning opportunities I am being shown.

I am ready to embrace positive change and to accept an avalanche of good in my life. 

My commitment to you is that for the next 30 days (and beyond) I am willing to look for and name things I am thankful for, and to celebrate the many Blessings I already have.

With love and gratitude,

(insert your own name here)


Tomorrow we start Day 1.  See you there!

  1. I shall be another very late recruit. Book of shaddows come spiritual journey book ready pen poised… first thanks… the boys are out in the pool playing nicely with friends.. I have some quiet time to explore this blog further and play with my own. Now to like on face book and bring some friends with me for this positive excercise for the new year…
    Love, LIght and Happiness. x

  2. Je suis infiniment reconnaissante d’avoir pu découvrir votre blog, et c’est plaisir que je suivrai votre programme pour une vie meilleure !

  3. Thanks Nicole, I know I’m a bit late with this one-but I’m going to go for it. Thanks for all the daily inspiration, I’m so grateful my friend told me about your blog.

  4. Is it too late to begin? I am so grateful for the time that my husband and I had together, for the direction and learning he gave me, for the love and camaraderie, for his intelligence, wisdom and farsightedness. Thank you God. the anniversary of his passing is still so very painful, but I feel such happiness and gratitude for the lessons learnt and for what is to come. 🙂

  5. Gratitude is part of my daily life. Some people might call it “stupidity” as i am grateful even for the bad things that are happening. it could always be worse. i am grateful for whatever happens because i have faith that if it did happen that way, it’s for my own good.
    I also started to believe in the law of attraction. What seemed impossible two months ago, happened. i never thought I would be free one day. I dreamed, I prayed, I believed, and I am.

  6. Wow!! This is an amazing thing you’re doing for yourself..and for everyone else doing it too. I noticed I’m a little late in joining…What would you recommend? Start from Day 1 and just go from there?

  7. Nicole, I’m so happy to see you doing the 30 day gratitude challenge…How awesome! I did something similar but I actually sent a card to each person I was grateful to for 30 days. I know I’m a bit late to join your challenge, but I’d love to participate as well!
    Let me know if you want to send any gratitude cards…I’d love to share and treat you to 2! xo

  8. Gratitude has definitely become such a natural part of my life…….I even keep a gratitude journal and begin each day with an affirmation of gratitude. You are truly a blessing in this world and I enjoyed and loved reading your phenomenol blog! Continue to be a beacon in this world and let your light shine on. Many blessings of love and light!

  9. Hello and Thank You this is exactly what I have been waiting for. I know that I can become a Lighworker. Bless You. I am Thankful for my life and that I no longer have Cancer!!!!!

  10. The timing is perfect. I was planning to do my own 30 day gratitude challenge (and, in fact, had just bought a journal for that very reason), but reading the blog made me think that getting some guidance from someone half way around the world might be even cooler. Thank you!

  11. I’m in Nicole! Better late than never 🙂 I must have bumped into you @ the supermarket today for a reason… if not MANY reasons to come! Thank you xox

That being said, let’s get this party started!

  20. I’d love to join you too. Have followed your posts regularly, Nicole, and have found them so positive and uplifting. :))

    1. I have been enjoying every single day of this Gratitude Guide. So much so that my Nana, who lives in Australia, has asked me to print off the daily guidance(s) and mail them to her. As I live in France it is just another way of sharing the love, globally.

  26. First of all one of your meditations kept playing on my i-phone and I couldn’t stop it. I couldn’t remember ever being on the particular page that the meditation was on! Now my friend has emailed me this challenge. I think it’s best I do it! Looking forward to it!

  27. Id love to join you. I take time to read your posts almost every day and find so much grounding in your words, thank you for sharing with us.

  28. I take a moment to read your daily musings each day while I eat my lunch in my gorgeous little shop… such a delight.

Your light shines brightly far and wide and for this I am grateful. All my love. Doone

  30. Count me in!! I DO a gratitude exercise each day, but this is going to be an intense process together with other peoples’ energies, and should be extremely powerful. Thanks for this. Looking forward for each day’s new challenge (I’m sure they will ALL be fun) and love the pledge! Says it all.
    with love light and JOY and of course much gratitude

    1. yes there is….and after just completing my Day 1, I look forward to connecting with everyone this evening…although when I held my crystal just now to put it near my bed, I felt as if its energy was swelling inside my hand and just moving outward to connect…quite a powerful feeling. Intent is all…thanks again. This is going to be one powerful month!! <3

  31. I would love to be involved, i have just the crystal and definitely need to turn my life around to focus on the positives and not being dragged down by all the things i cannot control!

  32. Hi Nicole, Thank you for taking your time to do this for us. This will help by putting me back into alignment with myself. 🙂 – Maria

  35. Wow, Nicole my husband has signed up for the 30 days of gratitude……I am so pleased for him, and me too! Thank you this could not have come at a better time. xxxx

  36. Nicole, I’m going to try really hard to participate as much as possible in this (even while coping with health issues, sorting and packing!). I know that except for health and finances, I’ve had lots of wonderful things happening in my life this year – and that is why I want to express my gratitude for my wonderful writing adventures and prospect of moving back to the place I love in October – as well as work on attracting better health and financial stability into my life as well. I have my journal and crystal ready, and look forward to sharing this journey with everyone! Sending you much love and light! ~ Love, Julie xoxox

  38. Wow, Nicole I can’t wait for the Gratitude party! They’re so much more fun than pity parties. Received a Gratitude Book a few years ago so have it at the ready, got myself a Gratitude rock, have written up my intentions, so (rock n) roll on tomorrow. xox Mitch.

  39. Yes Nicole I will be joining in and I am also hoping to encourage my husband to as well. Things have been really out of sorts lately from a business point of view and sometimes it is impossible for him to think about anything else. I am really looking forward to this exercise. xx
