I was grumpy today. And tired. For the first part of the day gratitude was really helping me - I was seeing things in a new way. But I hit a rut this afternoon.
But there are still things to be grateful for! I am grateful that my bad mood was short lived. I am grateful that I remembered to go to yoga - and it was exactly what I needed! I am grateful that tomorrow is a new day and another chance to try again. I am grateful for forgiving and loving children who still want to be with me all the time, even when I'm grumpy. I'm grateful that soon I will be sleeping in a warm, soft bed between two people who love me very, very much. Today exemplifies perfectly why I want to keep my gratitude streak going - because there is always something to be grateful for, no matter what my mood is.
A new space to record my gratitude, regularly. Inspired by 100 Happy Days. I've realized that "Happy" is not possible for me all the time and rather than feel guilty about that I've decided to embrace what I CAN do - Gratitude. I can always find things to be grateful for - every day, even in my darkest moments. So join me in a million moments of gratitude. The more the merrier (thankfuller??)!
