There’s Always a Last Resort

Gratitude List 30/04/2018

I am grateful my intolerance could have been worse.

I am grateful my resentment could be worse.

I am grateful that my pain could be worse.

I am grateful my tiredness could be worse.

I am grateful my gluttony could have been worse.

I am grateful my dishonesty could be worse.

I am grateful my day could have been worse. A lot worse.

I am grateful for this list and how it has changed my mood and given me some perspective and serenity.

After a great start to the day, there was a difficult moment towards the end and very quickly my whole outlook on the day changed. Despite this, things could be worse. This isn’t hypothetical, I know this through personal experience or through witnessing it in others. Failing that, all I need to do is watch the news. Sometimes it is difficult for me to find gratitude, but this way of thinking is always there, ready to be used as a last resort.
