How To Feel Happier Instantly! Expressing Gratitude When Things Fucking Suck

Updated: Mar 19

The energy of the entire last month has been a little rough. While it’s typical in a Mercury Retrograde (and it's current shadow period), I think part of the reason why it's been rough is that we need to express more gratitude (also it’s Thanksgiving Day in less than a week)!


Gratitude expression is massively valuable and important in creating and sustaining happiness. When things are feeling especially rough, gratitude is more helpful than you might think to make things instantly feel better. You might be whining there’s nothing to be thankful for, but that’s 100% false.



Maybe your limiting belief is that you don’t have the time to incorporate routine gratitude practice into your life, but that is also 100% false. I came up with this list of examples of things to be thankful for as I was driving… (I am not an advocate for multi-tasking while driving for the record... I can express additional gratitude to further prove my point that you understand that previous statement as you read this and that I had the technology to create this video for you while I drove, and I was able to do it while safely navigating the road.)




You don’t have to write a gratitude journal or be the annoyingly over positive person in your friend group by verbalizing your gratitude to the universe and anyone within earshot constantly. We can express gratitude in every tiny moment we are conscious by just thinking about how blessed we are (even in the midst of the horrible experiences). Here's an example of when I crashed my car into a snowbank but it was actually something to be MASSIVELY thankful for!


Here’s the list I made in my commute to get you started. To see in practice exactly how easy and quick this method is, check out this video!


Thank you that I have a cell phone.

Thank you for rearview mirrors. .

Thank you for makeup.

Thank you for hairbrushes. rs.

Thank you it's not raining and snowing.

Thank you that it's 58 degrees and not 20 degrees.

Thank you that I have a car.

Thank you that I've made my car payment.

Thank you that I am driving safely.

Thank you for seat belts.

Thank you for gas in my car.

Thank you that my car works.

Thank you that I have a radio so that I can listen to it.

Thank you for light traffic.

Thank you for eyes so that I can see when other cars are coming.

Thank you for mirrors.

Thank you for rear view mirrors.

Thank you for side mirrors.

Thank you for horns so that I can honk at people when they're not driving correctly and see me.

Thank you for hair brushes.

Thank you for road signs so that I know which way to go.

Thank you for memory.

Thank you for my brain.


Do you see how easy it is? I am literally just listing my surroundings and raising my personal vibration simultaneously which in turn will attract to me even greater blessings and happiness because that’s how the law of attraction works (don’t worry, I will make a trillion blog posts and videos on that later- which leads me to say now- thank YOU for reading this, and also thanks for the blessing of time, God/Universe/Allah/whatever).


Back to the list:

Thank you for oxygen.

Thank you for communication.

Thank you for language.

Thank you that I can express myself through language and that other people understand what I'm saying.

Thank you for street lights for when it's dark on my way home.


I could literally spend 24 hours straight without stopping reasons to be grateful. It’s only hard if you make it hard. You can even be thankful for EASE.


What are some of the little things that you can express gratitude for right now? Let me know in the comments!


I am thankful that you’ll try this, and you’ll watch this video for further explanation of how it works and why it works, and that you’ll feel more positive, motivated and happy as a result!

I love you! Thank you for all your love as well!
