This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it.
Have you ever met someone who cannot find good in anything? It pains my heart to hear incessant complaining. Their words may change but the tone is always the same…nothing is good, everything is awful. What’s even more devastating is when a person cannot love and fully enjoy another human being because all they can see is what is wrong with him while at the same time missing all that is right.
This post is a reminder to pay attention to the tone of your thoughts and words. What you think and say will directly affect how you feel and there a good chance if you are feeling really miserable, your words and thoughts are miserable too. I know it’s hard to change. I have found myself in this trap as well but I can tell you that there is one thing that will pull you out of that dark hole every single time. Purposely make a mental list of things to be grateful for everyday. Just go through the motions at first and fake it if you must. With time, what you write down will feel more genuine and you will retrain your heart and mind to live in a place of gratitude. It will change your life and I want that for each one of you. Let’s start right now. What are you grateful for today? I am grateful I get to wake up next to a man who loves and supports me with his whole heart and that I feel his love for me every single day. Your turn now. Go! Tell me what you’re grateful for.
