If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, ‘thank you,’ that would suffice.” ~ Meister Eckhart
This has been an exceptionally difficult week. I feel as though I have been encountering negativity at almost every turn.
I am astonished at the number of people who complain and focus on all their troubles and woes and expect that life will change.
“What we focus on, we empower and enlarge. Good multiplies when focused upon. Negativity multiplies when focused upon. The choice is ours: Which do we want more of?” – Julia Cameron, Blessings
YOU get to decide. If you want to be happy, CHOOSE to walk in gratitude.
Walk In It…
I am thankful for all that I am.
I am wonderful just the way I am right now.
I am thankful that I can make a difference.
I know that helping others also strengthens me.
I am thankful for friends and family.
I am blessed in knowing I am not alone and that I have
people who care about me and share my life
People who have taught me love, patience, strength
and so much more
I am thankful for every new day and every new challenge.
Every new day is a chance to make a difference
to experience joy, and to grow .
I am thankful for the beauty that surrounds me every day.
For sunny skies and thunderstorms; majestic trees and wildflowers
I am in awe at the magic of nature in the world around us.
I am moved by kindness, smiles, hugs, and laughter
I am thankful for my tears, in both sorrow and joy.
Because they mean I care.
I am thankful for all the struggles I have endured and overcome.
Everything happens for a reason. I am proud that I am strong
and that I have grown in character and resilience.
I am thankful for all my mistakes.
I have learned many valuable lessons.
There is truly SO much more to be thankful for.
No matter how bad things seem, see the little things that matter, and be thankful.
I believe that when you can become thankful for all your troubles, they can become your blessings.
