The Altitude of Your Attitude for Gratitude

Β  Β  Β  Β  How high does your level of gratitude reach? Now everyone has written about some angle of gratitude, but to grow in thanksgiving, you have to let some things go to see the big picture, in order to rise, like mercury in a thermometer. Life has thrown some curve balls that even astonish Major League Baseball pitchers. Either these curve balls will knock us out, or we focus and fire away by hitting them head-on and out of the park.

Β  Β  Β  Β  The altitude of our gratitude depends on our attitude of appreciation for gifts that are not simply based on materialistic gains but on how stronger we get in the midst of adversity. Quite often, it is expected that gratitude comes automatically, when things are going great. Ah, the good life, and we think we are happy right? But when you can be grateful in the midst of trials, hardships, and exposing scars on your knees and elbows, along with those unexpected mishaps, oh honey, that raises the mercury on your gratitude meter. You are able to give a strong testimony as you reflect on how you survived your most traumatic tests.

Β  Β  Β  Β  Each day, find something to be grateful for. Just one thing. The benefits of gratitude lead to greater compassion and empathy for others. Gratitude can improve our overall well-being, mentally and physically. Gratitude enables you to give more when it seems like you’re running on empty. Gratitude also helps you to get a better night’s sleep and helps you to smile more. Now, with benefits like that, there’s no reason not to be grateful for something every day. Be awakened, nourished, and transformed.

πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’– To you my dear friends, I am truly grateful for you! πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–
