Gratitude

Gratitude is a decidedly wonderful gift to give and to receive. We all want to be appreciated for our efforts and show appreciation to others for theirs. (At least, I hope so!)

Beyond that sense of being grateful, however, is the overwhelming attitude of gratitude that comes about when you face the world and realize how lucky blessed you really are. This video really explains vividly what I mean:

 

I have to remind myself to be grateful for all the blessings I have and I urge every one of us to continue to look at all of the wealth that surrounds us. Not simply the material possessions, but the sense of security, the movement of our bodies and brains, and all of the other priceless good stuff. 

We really do have a wonderful life.

"What a wonderful life I've had! I only wish I'd realized it sooner."--Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette

  1. Very cool. It's so good to be able to reflect on all the things I am grateful for. I don't do it enough.

    Good luck with the rest of the challenge!

  2. I think a lot of people's outlooks would change if they sat for a moment and thought about all the blessings they've had in life opposed to all the things they can find to complain about.
