Rather than thinking of the deficits and of the things that you do not have, how would your life change if you were to wake up tomorrow more grateful? Would you be able to point out the things in your life that you are grateful for that sometimes go unnoticed? What about the people in your life that you are grateful for, have you told them lately? Would you tell them?
As a society we get so caught up in the daily battles with ourselves and others that we forget all of the beautiful priceless “things” around us. Rather than re-directing ourselves to view from a more grateful perspective, we get caught up in the “why me” or the sarcastic “great” mindset.
What are your priceless pieces in your life? Are you able to appreciate them? When was the last time you said “thank you” to someone and really meant it? The words “I appreciate you” or “I am grateful for…” do not come out of our mouths very often and yet those words can take you so far and change your whole day and possibly make someone else’s.
Waking up in the morning and focusing on the things in your life that you are grateful for is one of the first steps to being healthy. Healthy minds are grateful for the beauty around them and they are able to recognize and appreciate that beauty.
Do you recognize the beauty that is all around you? Is your picture of life a little muddy and making it hard to focus in on the beautiful things and beings in your life? Give us a call/text and let’s figure it out together. Life is too short to not be grateful.
Seriously, how would your day look?
