Gratitude List 04/03/2019
I love a little moan…. Thankfully, by practicing gratitude, I am more often than not quick to see the positive side – the silver lining.
Today I am grateful that when my girlfriend causes me harm, I remember (sometimes after a while) that I have a girlfriend and one I love… and one I almost lost.
Today I am grateful that when it’s wet, windy and cold, I remember I have a home to go to, a warm coat to wear and I live in a country where the weather doesn’t reach extreme measures.
Today I am grateful that when things are financially tight, I remember I have some and that things used to be so much worse.
Today I am grateful that when I wish I wasn’t doing overtime, I remember that thousands and thousands do not have any employment at all.
Today I am grateful that when I’d rather not look at the list of house chores, I remember that having a home is a blessing I cannot forget and keeping it clean is good for my serenity.
Today I am grateful that when I wish I could do better with certain things, I remember all the positive changes I have made in the last couple of years. I remember where I’ve come from.
Today I am grateful that when I miss my kids, I remember that I get to see them twice a week. I could have easily been in a position where I either saw them less, or even to the point where they didn’t want to see me.
Today I am grateful that when I receive criticism, I remember (sometimes slowly) the lessons I can learn from it.
