I could think of a gazillion things to gripe and complain about, but I won’t. Want to know why? I did that for a while, and it got me no where, made me unhappy and very uncool to be around. So instead, as I stepped outdoors, I spun around and acknowledge the beauty of this perfect spring weather. I proceeded to my car and the rustling of the leaves above, drew my attention to one of the tiny marvels of God’s creation…. a squirrel.
So today I’m grateful for this beautiful weather, and the lovely creatures around (most of them :-)). I challenge you to write five things that you are grateful for each day. You may find it a bit difficult at the start, but as you continue to practice this, you will find that you don’t have to think so hard to come up with your list; and most importantly, your attitude will gradually shift from being a complainer, an ungrateful person, a negative person to a positive, cheerful and grateful individual.
What are you waiting for? Go on, start the challenge and experience the change it brings!
P.S. Always remember that “feeling gratitude and not expressing it, is like wrapping a present and not giving it” – William A Ward
