Attitude and Gratitude.
Okay. So maybe it’s more than two letters.. but the idea is the same! Sometimes what you need to change isn’t your life.. it’s your attitude.
I’m sure you’ve heard of the – be grateful for 5 new things every day and it’ll make a world of difference! Well.. Some of us can’t organize our thoughts that easily. I’m lucky if I can walk out the door with everything I need for my next class, let alone find and record 5 things to be grateful for..
So instead, I try to wake up in the morning grateful I didn’t die. … Sounds morbid doesn’t it? But I mean it! If you think about the number of opportunities for death that you expose yourself to everyday it’s amazing to think that you’re still breathing. Then if you let that thought process trickle down it’s amazing what a difference it’ll make.
You can infect others with joy. Sounds like a disease right? Well. Let’s just say it is. It’s the best disease you’ll ever have or give. I’m thinking we could make it like the next common cold. Everybody has a strain, even if they’re just a carrier. 😛
I feel like a lot of people have to have just the right circumstances, the planets align, and something major happen for them to be grateful for the life they have. Either that or they/a loved one has a near death experience.
Is that really how you want to be? You only want to be grateful when you feel that mercy has been shown? Hmmm….
Just think on that for a little and may the force be with you.
