An Attitude of Gratitude

20170316_144510-2

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

Be Inspired!

  1. PRAISE BE TO GOD! Being grateful places us in a state of trust in our Heavenly Father for He is The Provider. Tomorrow will take care of its self. I am grateful for the ability to write this note and I am grateful for you, sister for creating this blog.

  3. “What you think you become; what you feel you attract…”
    Every situation, even difficult ones, presents an opportunity for an expression of gratitude. One can always be thankful that a bad situation is not worse than it actually is. So, though not as conspicuous as a complaint, there is a ‘thank you’ hidden in every difficulty.
    By expressing gratitude you attract to you more situations worthy of gratefulness.
    Great encouragement sis…Keep the positivity alive!
