Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation.

January 16th - I am grateful!

Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.

William Arthur Ward

I try to express my gratitude often, and I make a list of 3 things every day that I count as blessings, things I am grateful for.  There are of course many more than 3 things each day, little things that sometimes go by with out much notice.  

Taking time to seek out those things is sometimes called mindfulness.  We are mindful of our circumstances, our surroundings try to appreciate things more.

Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.

Melody Beattie

Each day I take a step forward by doing what I can the best I can. and remember that that with the good Lord’s help, anything is possible.  Giving up limiting beliefs about what we can or cannot do, about what is possible or impossible. 

The EXTRAORDINARY things happen nowhere else but in the everyday and today can always be the beginning.

Every day may not be a good one but there is something good to be found in every day.   Let your dreams be bigger than your fears and your actions louder than your words.  We have to take into consideration the fact that the present moment is all we have and all we will ever have. 

Sometimes we take one step forward and one step back, but the important thing is to keep stepping forward!

If you concentrate on finding whatever is good in every situation, you will discover that your life will suddenly be filled with gratitude, a feeling that nurtures the soul.

Harold Kushner

Every day is indeed a gift and we have to remind ourselves of that when times are tough. There is always something to be grateful for each and every day!

We have been blesses to be thankful and GRATEFUL for most of our adult life. It has been a very good life. It is hard to see how many are waiting until they reach a certain plane to be GRATEFUL.' Being raised to be grateful certainly helped.

Isn't that the truth?
Recalling my (abundant) blessings is something I like to do in the wee hours. You know, when the fretful, worry gremlins start messing with my mind. :)


I practice MINDFULNESS. It is a wonderful thing.
