It is easy to get wrapped up in our head, our thoughts, our problems, but do we ever just pause to say it out loud…I’m grateful…
Take a minute out of your day today and say these three words with love and gratitude in your heart and watch the world around you seem a little brighter.
Oh, yes you are correct…tomorrow or even maybe tonight those same thoughts, problems may return with vengeance, but for few minutes or few hours, your heart may feel hopeful and bright. Let it have a little break every once in a while.
I am grateful for my life.
I am grateful for people in my life.
I am grateful for the music, the birds that are free, the flowers blooming…
I am grateful to be doing what I love.
I am grateful for the pain that made me stronger, for the tears that made me feel, for the laughter that made me human.
I am grateful for you.
I am grateful for me.
…and I am grateful that despite it all, despite our past, we are living in these times making a difference and finding a better way, together.
