My apologizes to those who are not quite ready but this weather ❄️(not the sunny skies you see in the picture) is making me jump ahead to the seasons of giving, which has lead me to reflection and gratitude.
How many of us wake-up each morning and immediately think or write down what we are thankful for? I bet not many of us…including myself. I fall in the trap of thinking about my to-do-list, how much sleep 😴I got and if my husband has started brewing my coffee. ☕️ 😁
We live in a society where everyone is trying to better themselves. We are the generation of the “I will be happy when…” Whether it’s a job change, a new car, buying our dream house or losing weight, the “now” is not good enough and we continue to be fixated on the next big milestone.
Gratitude is more then showing appreciation for a gesture, it’s a state of being. Being thankful for the good in our everyday life but also being able to see the silver lining during life’s challenges and appreciating the setbacks.
- When we let go of what is not fair in our life, we can see the opportunities vs. obstacles ahead.
- When we stop focusing on what we don’t like about ourselves, the sooner we can see the true beauty and strength that our bodies do everyday.
- When we let go of the worry around what we can’t control, we will see the possibilities instead of problems.
- When we stop dwelling on the past and show gratitude for what lessons we learned the sooner we can make positive changes in our present and future.
Gratitude is about navigating through life’s roller coaster: the good, the bad and the ugly. We get to choose to see the light, the potential and maintain hope that a temporary situation will not stop us from believing there is a better, brighter future ahead.
There is so much to be grateful for in our lives, in us and in this world. It’s time to open up our minds and choose to see it!
