Lately it feels that I've been experiencing life at a rate of wtf's per minute. Yet, I am still grateful that I'm here to blog about it. Which brings us to .....
Gratitude is the ability to be grateful for everything we have in our lives.
So I've been trying to ignore the WTFs and make gratitude a daily practice. Someone once told me that an attitude of gratitude protects us from negative emotions. I'm not 100% sure yet but I'm trying to get there.
Seriously, "do you bless everything that comes your way? How deep is your gratitude? Are you thankful for you meal? For the store it came from? For the migrant workers that picked the crops? How about the farmer that planted the seeds?" Heck, I even thank the company that genetically engineered the seeds and sell 'em to the farmers every year. Well maybe not but you get my point.
My Quote for 2010
"You can be grateful because you are happy, but you can also be happy because you are grateful."
