More Gratitude ~ Less Attitude

“What would your life be like if you woke up today with only the things that you thanked God for yesterday?” Susanne

We have only to watch the news … or even the news headlines … to see that there is an awful lot of less-than-wonderful stuff going on in the world.  Between the wars and the posturing … the blatant attempts at control and outright subjugation of entire groups of people … and the famine and economic woes … there is more than enough misery to go around.  Ah-h-h-h-h but the good thing is … that whilst it is true that all of that #*@# is going on there are also innumerable good things happening … the news media just doesn’t feel like reporting those!

Everybody has things that they wish were better … different or simply other-than-they-are.  And, everybody has things that occurred in their past that they wish had happened differently … or not at all.  The big thing that I have come to realize is that it’s not about whether or not bad things happened or are happening … it’s about how I internalize them and what I allow them to make me into.

Having come through an extended trip through Medical Crisis Land I now get it that every day that I am alive and breathing is a plus.  I’m grateful for the friends and family in my life … the sunshine in the morning (or the snow if you live in Canada in the winter) … for Miss Perky, Ms. Sunshine and Life’s awesome support … and for being on the green side of the grass.  I do my best to keep an eagle eye peeled for things to smile about and I find that the more things that I am grateful for … the more things show up for which to be grateful!  I am a walking, talking, living billboard for the phrase: “More Gratitude ~ Less Attitude” … and darn proud of it. 😀

Godspeed and Joyful Journeying Everyone
