This week’s posts are all centered around a common idea – living thankful. Not just being thankful inside, but letting it show on the outside. It’s easy to post something nice on social media or be thankful in our hearts, but I hope you will be motivated this week to take action with your thankfulness. Each day, I will encourage you to do something to show your thankfulness, and I would love to hear what you have done to show it!

Contentment and thankfulness go hand in hand. When we live content with our time, money and relationships, we are thankful for what we have been given. The best way I know how to live content with what I have is by giving away what I have been given. When our money or stuff has a grip on our hearts, there is no way for us to be thankful for what we have. Our hearts our preoccupied. So today the challenge is to give away what you have been given. Buy someone’s meal, give a big tip, give away something you have. Give your time to someone who needs you, go online and give to something you believe in. Whatever it is, give away what you have been given today! Take a picture and share it with the hashtag #upsidedown so you can inspire someone to live thankful for what they have been given!
