I believe that gratitude comes from having the right kind of attitude. Yesterday my family and I spent what I call a lazy Sunday afternoon, something we have not done in a while. I say lazy, when actually we were busy yet it didn’t feel busy, it was just fun. We spent several hours just kicking a football back and forth, reading and pitching golf balls. We enjoyed the sun, being together and laughed a lot. All of which I am grateful.
As I continue interviewing breast cancer survivors for my new book, I am in awe at their courage, strength and attitude in life. We all have things in life we can be grateful for no matter what life has dealt us. There comes a real power and sense of freedom in choosing our attitude, how we see life’s events and the meaning we decide to give to them. It’s finding the good in even those most difficult times that counts.
Out of every situation in life, you are free to make the decision to find the good, see the blessing, and embrace some kind of learning. In some cases it can mean a second chance in life. A new life. Not one perhaps that we knew exactly before, but nevertheless new. A chance to be reborn.
Really no matter where you are in life whether you are living your ideal best life or not there are always things to be grateful for. It’s really a mindset a conscious and purposeful choice to see the good and feel gratitude for the people, events and things in life. Do you have an attitude of gratitude?
