This week, I've realized that making thankfulness a habit is actually one of the best things I ever did. I've heard people say that when you do it out of habit, it stops ringing true, but for me, because I have developed a habit of giving thanks, it's second nature now to look for the thankfulness point in any bad situation.
It changes my outlook. It redirects my attitude. It reminds me that I am directly responsible for setting the tone of my day. That I can choose to give thanks, or I can choose to complain.
This week, the things on my thankfulness list include:
Celebrating a year at my job
A new kitchen knife
And a husband who loves me even when I am completely unlovable and cranky.
I'm thankful that I finally found some not-too-dorky sunglasses that fit my daily-wear frames.
I'm thankful for Columbo in the car.
I'm thankful for new pillow cases, fun books, encouragement from clients, and flexibility.
Being thankful is a blessing. It's a constant reminder in the midst of a crazy world that there is always some reason to give thanks...
What are YOU thankful for today?
