Gratitude is the Attitude I Choose
Wednesday, March 14, 2018
Regardless of the situation, I have a choice for how i think and feel and behave. Gratitude is the choice I make. There are times that are tough, that is all part of the life on life's terms thing. However, I can make a choice to be grateful for what is happening, even when it is difficult.
It took me a couple days to realize I was being really grumpy because I pulled a groin muscle on Saturday and can't immediately jump right back in to where I was in my step work out or my movement. (I see it less as "exercise" and more as the way I live). Then I realized, sometimes my Higher Power wants me to slow down a little, be a bit less obsessive, and focus on the things around me.
Like, I have two days off the work week this week for Spring Break (which hasn't happened in the last ten years), so I have more time with my daughter. I can go see my mom if I choose. I can clean a corner of my living room the way I really want it. I can spend time with friends at meetings and after. I can embrace the moment and feel gratitude!!
So today, I am back on track and grateful. It's a glorious day, isn't it?
