Attitude of Gratitude

8 comments

wp-1484928101125.jpgToday I will embrace an attitude of gratitude.  I will be thankful for the food on my plate.  I will be grateful for you who enter my life today.

I think too often we let life carry us on the breeze, and we often don’t “stop to smell the roses.”  Well, at least that happens to me at times.  Today, I will be grateful for the day, grateful for another day of sobriety.

I will be open to what others have to say.  I will be a better listener than I was yesterday.  I find that when I pause the urge to talk, my interactions are so much more rich.  I have to stop “waiting for my turn to talk.”  That’s a symptom of my disease.  There is room for more opinions than just my own today.

I will breath in the October air and relish the Fall of Earth.  It’s sights, sounds, scents.  I will live in the moment and just be today.  I will direct my attention towards gratitude, for the day, not just the moment…

  1. Also, just so you know, on the WordPress app on my phone, the link to your blog takes me here (justruminatingblog.wordpress.com) but on my computer, you’re linked to a different site (justruminating.wordpress.com) which is extremely confusing. Are they both yours?

  2. Yes, lovely!! It’s amazing how much an attitude of gratitude can turn a bad day, or even a dull one, into something so beautiful and so much richer. Ever since I started working on my gratitude, the world has really come alive around me. I also literally stop and smell the roses, almost every single one I see 😆 I like this a lot.
