An Attitude of Gratitude…

What does it mean to have an attitude of gratitude? When I hear this phrase, it leads me to not only think about all that I have to be grateful for, but also prompts me to find creative ways to show it. How you ask? I start by turning down the world’s volume, and focusing more effort and attention on the positives in life, as opposed to the negatives. I also try to keep a smile on my face as much as I can, work to find the bright side in the midst of challenges, and spend time reviewing and learning from my mistakes. It’s not always easy, but it’s possible!!!

As the year comes to a close, it’s the perfect time to reflect back over the past 12 months. Once you do so, I am certain that you will find there is so much more to be thankful for, than not. Of course we could fill up an entire page or two, about every setback, delay, loss, misstep, and/or issue…BUT, we’re choosing to focus our attention on the wonderful blessings that have been extended to us. Don’t worry, we have plenty of time to address ways to overcome life’s ever changing plans. As for today, we’re choosing to focus our energy in a different direction. Since God woke us up today, we most certainly have something to rejoice about. So…let’s do what it takes today, to have an attitude of gratitude!
