Starting With Thoughts of Gratitude

Standard

I woke up today feeling very grateful. I couldn’t help but allow my mind to travel back to a time of outhouses, oil lamps and no running water. I wonder what families talked about as they sat around the dinner table. There were no cell phones giving off notifications every second and no stories of impending doom coming from a news channel as the noise continuously blared from the tv. We are so fortunate but yet conversations would make you think the sky is getting ready to fall. What you talk about you get more of. How you think and where you place your focus determines what you attract more of. Resist and you attract more opportunities to do just that. Practice gratitude and the Universe delivers more situations to feel grateful for. Sometimes it is clear to see why we are in the state we are in but just for today, think about how lucky and blessed you are with all these modern conveniences. Don’t create drama, create peace and don’t fabricate problems where there are none. Change your thinking because after all, that is the only thing you have an ounce of control over. Use it in your favor. Change your world and the outside world will start to reflect what you see.

  1. Then my dad was younger he said he worked for a short time on the farm of an older couple. He said he was bored evenings because that couple just sat around quietly then went to bed. I’d guess they were early risers living on a farm and didn’t stay up very late. I bet they either read if men or worked on some stitching if women in the evening. He said he finally got on his bike and rode to his home in the town. 🙂 — Suzanne
