Thanksgiving, a time to reflect on the past year and take stock in the blessings of your life. This year has been filled with many life blessings and life lessons. It's difficult to look at the hard times as life lessons and not negative times.
I have been working on "Lessons in Gratitude" this past month. I have been looking at any negative and trying to find something positive that I can be grateful for.
There are so many things to have Gratitude for. When the negative becomes too overwhelming it's most likely time for me to re-think it. At this point I have figured out that its up to me to change my mind and make it positive.
I have decided that Gratitude has to be a way of thinking every day or its easy to dive into the depths of despair. Its difficult to pull up out of that.
So I pull myself up by my boot straps and put my big girl socks (knit by me) on, and walk tall with gratitude and grace!!!
