Please join me and our Board of Directors in the 2022 Friends for Survival Gratitude Challenge Fundraiser going on now through December 31st.
As suicide loss survivors, it can be really hard to see the good things that remain in our world. A proven practice that can help is mindful gratitude. Pick something small and write it down on your gratitude wheel, or pick something amazing!
No matter what you pick, seeing a filled-out gratitude wheel will help you visualize the good still in your world.
Gratitude isn’t just the feeling you may get after something good happens to you. It’s a way of thinking that takes practice and hard work to make it part of our everyday behavior. It’s often easy to forget many of the little things we have to be grateful for in our lives, but it’s important not to take anything for granted.
I am grateful for the hope, education and understanding the great people at Friends for Survival have provided to me and so many others.
Kelly Holmstrom, Board President
