Without gratitude, I’ll most likely have a lousy attitude and a lousy attitude makes everything HARDER. I can eat healthy, exercise, and rest but if I don’t have gratitude the road is much bumpier and I risk being a royal pain in the azz to everyone around me. I’m speaking from experience here. I came across this quote and after reflecting on it, I decided it encompasses so much of what I’d like to say and more.
“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity…. It turns problems into gifts, failures into success, the unexpected into perfect timing, and mistakes into important events. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.”
