there are so many things to be grateful for in this life. i forget often that gratitude is a place of grace so i drift to other places in my mind and my heart. but truth be told, it is a blessing to be here, it is a complete adventure, it is a wild ride, and it is always filled with surprises.
today i just take a moment to remember my beliefs about being thankful and to reinforce them. i have learned that when push comes to shove, gratitude trumps most of the negative thoughts i am having and whisks me to a place of peace in my mind. it doesn’t change the situation. it changes my perception of the situation which affects my response.
