|I kinda imagined Joey saying that last part.|
So it has been 2 weeks since I resolved to write my blessings and have gratitude for EVERYTHING I could possibly think of. How am I doing?
I would like to say:
I'M DOIN' AWESOME. HOW YOU DOIN'?
Gratitude has been surprisingly easy. I think I was already a thankful person--my life has had some lows that I wouldn't wish on anyone else, but I always seem to find my way out of the funk that follows and move into a better state of mind.
Pretty much from the first day I started keeping track of my blessings, I began to have "good luck." Things seem to work out better these days. Maybe it's just a happy attitude. I am definitely happier. I am definitely not always happy. Negativity can wear me down and I fall into that same pattern of bitchin' and complainin'.
But the good news is, I'm becoming more aware of when this is happening, and on at least a couple of occasions, I was able to find positivity in the negative and bring myself out of a potential ungrateful feeling.
It all goes down to whatcha momma taught you. Say, "thank you." It costs nothing, and it makes you focus on good.
|She'd probably also tell you to wear clean underwear...just in case you're in a car accident, but I digress...|
I hope that I can remember this as summer winds down, and I head back to work. Oh, and...
THANK YOU FOR WHATEVER YOU HAVE DONE FOR ME EVEN IF IT'S JUST READING MY BLOG.
