Gratitude in my Attitude: The beginning


As you may have, ahem, noticed I’ve been struggling. With a lot that I won’t get into right now but may later. Or may not. I’m not sure.

But one of the things that has been bothering me is this: I look at what we don’t have and what isn’t working way too much. It’s enough to make one a wee bit disgruntled. And I’m trying to change that.

So as often as I can, hopefully once a week, I’m going to try to concentrate on what’s good and happy in my life. Remember to have a little gratitude even as we’re struggling. And that brings us to this.

Gratitude in my Attitude.

I need more. Do you? If people express interest, I’ve thought about making it one of those little weekly dealies where other people can post the graphic and talk about being grateful even in hard times. Or good times. Wherever they are at the moment.

So for this first time, I’m grateful for things to look forward to. Even as I worry about work, money, bills, etc., there ARE things to look forward to. I’m trying to remember that and enjoy the antici………… pation of it all. Instead of dreading. I’m a worrier and that is a big step for me.

So anticipation. It’s a good thing.

What are you grateful for right this moment?

    Hi! Thanks for visiting my blog a few weeks ago. I really appreciate the photo tips and will definitely put them to use.
    As for the gratitude thing, I understand where you’re coming from. Last summer I listed 5 things I liked about my biggest gripe. It helped. They were small things, but they really helped.

    @meredith – thanks for returning the favor and stopping by. i’m realizing that just concentrating on the positive aspects of something really works wonders. i hope i can continue to find more of the positive to think on.

    @anita – thank you. it’s so easy to get caught up in things and forget about gratitude… but i’m trying! :)
