December 24, 2013Dear Readers,
Even when it seemed that I had nothing to be thankful for this past year, I still gave thanks. Maybe I’m onto something. I don’t know about you, but giving thanks for what I have and who I am, always makes me feel better about my life. Life is much too short. You should be grateful.
I am grateful. Subsequently, I am happy.
Perhaps you cannot see my connection between being grateful and being happy. Recently, I discovered that my state of being grateful, creates my state of being happy. Everything looks a little brighter, as my endorphins kick in. Granted, sometimes being grateful is most difficult. Not only do I hang around ungrateful 13 year-olds all day, I am ignored more times than not by the adults. And, although some days I can only focus on the negative, I have been trying to make my morning meditation session a habit. Not only does my morning session get me ready for my day, it gives me a peaceful moment I can draw upon during the hectic days. That, is how I have turned my mindset to positive and decided to be a happier, more grateful individual.
