Don't forget to press pause

I have a hard time showing gratitude.

It's not that I'm not thankful for everything I have - I just tend to forget. I'm always so entangled in the next step that I forget to stop and show gratitude for where I am and what I have.

This shouldn't be too hard considering all it takes is a few moments.

Whether you're showing gratitude towards someone else or simply reminding yourself in a journal, a few minutes can make all of the difference.

Within these few minutes, you can:

• Tell someone how much they really mean to you.
• Remind yourself of how far you've come.
• Acknowledge life's little pleasures, like coffee or you know, being alive.
• Identify a new opportunity to take during the day.

The list goes on and on.

Unfortunately, we're all so focused on the fast-forward button that most of us forget to push pause.

If you ask me, this is the most underrated button there is.

Now if I could just remember where I put that damn remote in the first place...
