Being a FireWife means you’ve come to terms a bit with mortality.
Whether you hear it through the calls they go on or worry about their safety, the worry is there and you learn to push it aside or it eats you up. Some learn to live with it better than others. It’s all in how you let that worry take over.
That worry should never take over your days. You need to choose to live with no regrets and own your days. Own how you think. Own how you react. Own your happiness.
POSITIVES OF BEING A FIREWIFE:
There are so many positives.
- The entire bed to yourself.
- Watch chickflicks whenever you want.
- You can read before bed and not annoy anyone with the light.
- The remote is yours, ALL YOURS!
- Scheduling girls’ night for shift days or drill night is easy.
If you can’t immediately think of things in your life, please go ask your firefighter why they do it. That should quickly jolt your thinking. For me the number one is, he’s doing what he loves. He could have died in a car wreck at anytime while he was on that horrible commute to the job he hated, but now I know he’s doing what he always wanted to do.
A real switch takes place when you take it public. You’ll have access to the private Facebook group where we all post things we are grateful for each day. If you’re having a rough day it’s a great place to stop by and be reminded that your day wasn’t entirely bad.
WHY YOU NEED TO PRACTICE GRATITUDE:
- It reminds you what is good in the world
- It reminds you what is good in your community
- It reminds you what is good in your house
THE REASON YOU SHOULD KNOW THIS GRATITUDE:
- You will continue the good in your house and expand on it.
- You will see the good in your community and work to help it.
You will find the good in the world and push yourself to be better it.
Every day for 100 days a prompt will be delivered to your email
Writing this journal helped remind me why I continue to work on balance. Researching a little bit of the health benefits found to be shared by those that practice a life of gratitude helped solidify yet another reason for me to keep working at it. I’m not perfect and there are days I need the journal to write out my own lists. There are days I need the prompts. Prompts like “I appreciate the sound of…” or “10 things that always make me smile”. Then there are days I just need to sit and look through what I have previously written to be reminded of the things in my life that I’ve already talked about. There are 100 printable journal pages with prompts to get you focused on a new positive or list of positives each day.
The report part is quick to read because I want you to jump into the “work”. The report is to get you thinking and motivated. Why is living a life of gratitude important for your health? Where will you find this gratitude? How do you start journaling?
I know many people would rather listen than read. I’ve got you covered. You can now listen to the short report as a short audio. 15 minutes and you are inspired to use the journal pages.

- Audio of the quick report.
- 100 journal pages with prompts
