Developing an attitude of gratitude

Sunday, March 10, 2013

Today in church we learned about the Israelites who were led from slavery out of Egypt and into the promised land. Often, instead of thanking God for their deliverance, daily food & shelter, they complained.

I felt a pang of guilt because I, too, often focus on what I don't have rather than what I do.

This week I will focus on an attitude of gratitude. Not the fact that the scale isn't showing losses as fast as I want but that I have lost and learned much in these past 15 weeks. The fact that I'm making new healthy habits that I can incorporate into my daily routine for the long term.

And grateful that I have an abundance of food

and exercise choices

Good health, friends on and off SP who encourage & motivate.

    We have options, we're truly blessed in that sense. In some way, I feel we're obligated to make the best with the hand we've been dealt. emoticon
