I have been concentrating on remembering to post each day on my other blog about gratitude, so not much has been going on here. Since my attention has been on the other blog I thought maybe I should share some about my goals and purpose for starting my 365 Gratitude Project. There are sayings about counting your blessings. Books about looking at the things you have and appreciating them. Be satisfied with what you've been given. Have an attitude of gratitude. Even my pastor said this morning that the riches in Christ teach us to be content with what we have. So many books have been written by people living in horrible and dangerous circumstances and their ability to be thankful and triumph through the adversity and troubles. When I sit and compare, of course I see where I have it made, so to speak. I may not live in a mansion but it's not a cardboard box and I should be more grateful. I may not be as rich as others but I have money in the bank and can buy what I need and for that I should be grateful. I may not drive a luxury vehicle with all the bells and whistles but I do have a reliable and very nice car and for that I should be grateful. I may not have as many customers or team members as other people in my company but I have some and for that I should be grateful. But day to day these things dim sometimes. It is too easy to want, to yearn for and wish for something better, bigger, nicer. I am guilty of jealousy and envy. Which I have learned can lead to bitterness, discontentment and unworthiness. Then how can dreams be fulfilled and goals reached and progress made? It can't. So I need to focus on thankfulness and gratitude this year. I have big goals in mind. Goals for myself, my life, my business. And I will not be able to achieve them sitting and comparing myself to others and being unhappy. I will be grateful for the things I have, no matter how small or silly. Most days it will be no problem at all to write about an amazing thing or situation I am thankful for. Some days I know it will be hard to come up with something, anything! But I will! You may see many posts about my kids and/or puppies. They give me more joy than anything else. But I am determined to voice/write about at least one thing per day for which I am thankful. ( I reserve the right to post late if I need to, lol ) So I hope I have encouraged you to start your own 365 Gratitude Project, whether online for the world to see or in a private journal for yourself, either way it's not too late to start. As a bonus thanks today, I am thankful for you, for letting me share my words, life, business and thoughts with you. Share my blog for me as well if you would? I'll be even more grateful!
