Changes in Attitude, Changes in Gratitude

Have an attitude of gratitude; Be thankful for what you have; Count your blessings; no matter how it’s worded the thought behind it is the same.

Will living in gratitude really change your life? We believe so. We embarked on a journey of being grateful regardless of our circumstances.

This was to be a 30 day experiment. But a funny thing happened, barely 3 days in we noticed distinct changes in our attitude.

I first noticed it when an unexpected bill came in the mail. I chose to be grateful that I could pay it instead of worrying that it would totally disrupt the budget. Then on the first truly cold night here, my heat quit working. My first thought was “thankfully, we’ve got space heaters” instead of the standard “oh, sh**!”

Do we now automatically practice gratitude? Oh, heck no! I stub my toe, I’m not so grateful that I have that chair to sit in. However, after hopping around on one foot cursing inanimate objects, I will be thankful my toe isn’t broken.

It feels so much better to feel blessed than to let worry creep in. I find myself smiling more, being more encouraging to others and letting the little things go.

Consciously practicing gratitude will definitely change your attitude.
