Let’s do a little gratitude comparison, shall we?
Your websites have been attacked by hackers all week and they are wearing you and everyone else out VS you have a really happy healthy baby (who will attack said hackers in her Bumbo if you ask her).
Your inbox decided to fail and go to email heaven for good this time so you have to start over and try to remember all the emails you missed during maternity leave VS you have a wonderful caring husband who is rubbing your back as you type this in bed right now. He also fixed the drain tonight and made your happy healthy baby smile a lot.
You’ve had a headache for a week and can’t take anything but Tylenol because you are breastfeeding VS you are breastfeeding.
Your house suddenly has an ant problem VS you have a house - a roof over your head.
Gratitude instantly turns overwhelming into “well, that just sounds ridiculous.” Gratitude gives perspective wings. Be grateful. Actively. It takes work to change your thoughts and it will humble you like nothing else. Pursue it with passion and gusto. It’s there right now, in every moment, waiting for you to soak up life as it is supposed to be lived. In ALL things give thanks.
