I'm so grateful to return refreshed and ready to work again! I'm grateful for a few days away, unplugged and out in nature. I'm grateful for the perfect weather we had as we camped out. I'm grateful to have gotten back to the basics of cooking over a fire and rising and setting with the sun. I'm grateful for all the beautiful stars that shine so much brighter out there away from the lights of the city. And I'm grateful to be back here today to a job I love. In what ways do you take time for yourself? How do you take a break from your daily demands so that you can refresh? When you return, do you find yourself appreciating it or dreading what you are coming back to? Life is what we make of it. If we choose to focus on the negatives we will dread each day, with nothing seemingly good enough. Sure there are moments when our job is not our favorite or our life gives us a challenge or two to work out but if we are living in gratitude and focusing on the positive blessings in our lives then those times will be much easier to sail through. While we all need vacations and time to reboot, we also have to find ways to balance and find joy in where we are in our daily life. It is no way to go through life dreading and disliking 71% of our week. So how can you find love and happiness within each day? I'm grateful to wake knowing that a warm shower and food is available to me. I'm grateful to return to electricity, as much as I loved being away from it. I'm grateful to see a wonderful young woman today and help her find her own gratitude and power. I'm grateful to know that I am loved as much as I give love. May your day be filled with bright moments that help you find your gratitude in day to day life.
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
