Today I read the article about the power of gratitude on this website. I'm always spouting off about trying to have an attitude of gratitude, but the last week or so, I sure haven't displayed that very well. So it's time to put the scale back into prospective and the closet, quit complaining about not losing any weight in July, and start practicing what I preach.
Here's one of the lines from the article......"the more a person is inclined towards gratitude, the less lonely, stressed, anxious and depressed he or she will be." And really, there's a lot of good old common sense to go along with that.
I'm not doing so bad. I have a wonderful family, good friends, nice neighbors, a few hobbies that help with boredom.....my eyesight, two arms and two legs, and mobility. So not only should I have an attitude of gratitude, I must express it. I'm a very lucky person. God has blessed me richly, not with riches but with everything else that is important.
