Thursday's thought of the day:
~ GRATITUDE ~

By Melody Beattie

Say Thank You until you mean it.

Thank God for Everyone and everything sent your way.
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.
It turns what we have into enough, and more.
It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity.
It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home,
a stranger into a friend.

It turns problems into gifts, failures into successes, the unexpected
into perfect timing, and mistakes into important events.
It can turn an existence into a real life, and disconnected situations
into important and beneficial lessons.

Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today,
and creates a vision for tomorrow.
Gratitude makes things right.
Gratitude turns negative energy into positive energy.
There is a solution, it is gratitude. There is no situation or circumstance so
small or large that it is not susceptible to gratitude’s power.
We can start with who we are and what we have today,
apply gratitude, then let it work its magic!

Say Thank You, until you mean it.
If you say it long enough, you will believe it.

  2. and thank you for this reminder.

    It is a vicious cycle, when you take something for granted you don't appreciate it as much, and then you do receive less joy in life.
