It is really easy for me to complain and be irritated or mad and I’m trying to become a more positive person. This is one reason why I started my daily gratitude diaries. It has helped me keep an eye out for things to be grateful for so I can share what I find each night.
I am so thankful for everyone’s kind words and comments. They inspire me to continue to share my thoughts and projects with you. I get such a kick out of each ping notifying me of a comment!
I’m also grateful for one of my employees going out of their way to find someone to buy my Clipper tickets tonight. I would have enjoyed going to the game (I always do). But I was tired today and looking to spend the night in the comfort of my home. I’m so grateful for the extra spending money I now have. 🙂
The internet in my husband’s man cave stopped working today and I have not been able to fix it. I was irritated with it and myself. In thinking about how to turn the situation around and look at the positive side, I recognize that I enjoyed the banter between the hubby and I while we tried to fix the issue. I also am grateful that I know enough to try to figure it out. I still have a couple of options I need to try before I turn to serious help.
Today is Monday – the start of a new week and a new month. We’re heading into Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. Sadly, we will not be going up north to spend Thanksgiving with my family. But we are inspired to actually make Thanksgiving dinner together. We sat down last night and talked about what we wanted as part of our menu. I’m excited and inspired as we’ve never done this before. I’m grateful that the hubby and kids are easy and open to trying new things. I will be perusing the internet for recipes and ideas on what to make that will satisfy our taste buds and be easy enough for us to do.
I love the genuine gratitude posts of yours 🙂 this one reminded me my struggle with finding things to write on my joy journal (similar to your gratitude diary) many years ago: I remember I was inspired by the idea I had read in a book (thanking the author since then even though I cannot remember which book or author it was), was constantly trying, but was not able to come up with anything to be grateful of.. It lasted around 10 days, but eventually I started finding them during my day and remembering and recording them in the evenings/nights.
I am happy for you that you are keeping up, writing down, and enjoying all the wonderful things happening and people around you – keep up the good job 🙂
Thank you! You give me hope! 🙂
