As I mentioned on my Village Voices post, I’ve had a rough week. It is nothing too major, but it still makes me sad to think about it too much. Needless to say – life ain’t all roses all the time.
The power of gratitude is enough to lift me, though. I don’t mean that to sound like I’m some OTT Anthony Robbins type (aka the modern cult leader). I guess sometimes I do – constantly banging on about the way gratitude can change your life . Hell, even I’m sick of the word ‘grateful’ a lot of the time.
But listen up. It works.
This week, I’m grateful for…
278. Beautiful images – we went into ‘instagram’ on Grateful today. Lovelies from all over have been snapping something they are grateful for today and tagging it with #52weeksofgrateful. Just looking at those pictures has really, truly lifted my spirits.
279. Chatter – Can older people really actually chatter? Surely that run-off-at-the-mouth, babbling, chatter-chat-chat that children do is what chatter is really all about. I love it (just not in the car!!!)
280. Reminders – some people are so good at the ‘gentle reminder’. A reminder is so needed sometimes. I’m reminding myself to eat well this week. It’s gotta be better than chastising myself for not!
