There are a lot of things I want to learn in life, one of which is to be constantly grateful. Being grateful in a world that pushes us to yearn for more is challenging. I believe it has to be a constant balance between when to push for more and when to actually settle. Settling without feeling that you’ve short-changed yourself. My brain is wired to be either slow or fast. I never have an in-between. It is a trait that is evident in all I do, from love to going to work. (lol) I am starting to feel that I need to be more cautious of how I view things. It is not easy but I am certain that minor attitude changes will bring great impact in life. It is easy to get mad and to feel bad, however it takes more effort to look for the positive side of things. The fruit though of looking at things positively outweighs the easiness of being hateful. I easily get irritated and react when things are not going the way I wanted to, or when an idiot bus driver is trying get my lane (that deserves a different post). I think this time I will be feeling differently about things and just be more thankful and grateful. I know it won’t be easy, but it will all be worth it.
I challenge you to do the same. Learn to see the beauty of everything that happens around you good or bad. It won’t be easy, but it will be darn worth it. I can’t wait!
