Adopt An Attitude of Gratitude

This time of year you can’t help but take a step back and reflect on the many things in our lives that truly bring us joy. All those wonderful things that we are thankful for. So what are we thankful for? And do we make a point to really THANK those around us who contribute to it?

Try for this next week to look more deeply into what it is around you that creates that sense of joy & happiness. The big things are easy to think of (Family, Job, and Health….) but it is the little things that we tend to miss. A beautiful day, a smile, your spouse actually remembering to put his/her dirty clothes in the hamper….the list could go on forever. If you are having a hard time thinking of the small things…ask a child. Have you ever listened to a small child talk to God? Their list of things they are grateful for goes on and on and on… Once you begin to notice those small things…don’t forget to thank those individuals who brought that joy into your life.

If you can look at life with gratitude and strength, you will find that you will have more of those wonderful moments in your life.
