How much time does it take to recognize gratitude, to feel gratitude, to express a little gratitude? Apparently too much time for me lately…
You may (or may not have) noticed my absence lately…but as life bogs me down I’ve found that making time for gratitude and then blogging about it…has not been on my every expanding “To Do” list. I’ve also found that it really should be on my list. It’s pretty easy to develop the habit of thankfulness and but it’s equally easy to lose the habit…especially over time…I’ve done lately.
And the longer you go without daily practice…the harder it is to get back into the habit. I’m going to make the effort though…starting today…
I’m thankful for having this blog and this outlet…and for knowing that there are at least a few of you out there who can relate and who support me:)
“Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.–Unknown

“If I only have the will to be grateful, I am so.”– Seneca
What tips do you implement to maintain the habit of thankfulness even when life gets you down or people let you down?
