Being grateful is something that I practice regularly. I’ve been keeping a gratitude journal since 2005. That was the year I lost my mom and it was a tough year to start being grateful, but I trusted the concept and so I began. In reading back over some of my entries, I ran across one that showed how hard I had to dig one day to find something to be grateful for. On December 10th I wrote: “I am so grateful that I had such a wonderful mother and that she lived such a long life; because of that, I had her in my life longer……”
When I began this blog, I decided I wanted to acknowledge some of my mentors, for I am so grateful to have had them in my life. Even when things are tough, when you take the time to be grateful for what you have, more good things come into your life.
A good friend of mine shared this wonderful video all about gratitude with me and I knew I had to pass it on. Enjoy!
So what are you grateful for? I’d love for you to share your thoughts.
