Today’s Reminder: Gratitude
“Blessed are they who see beautiful things in humble places where others see nothing.”
~ Camille Pisarro ~
One Day At A Time Series
The ways in which practicing gratitude can affect us are endless. We have a more positive outlook on life, we tend to sleep better, our conversations are more uplifting, we are more tolerant of things that typically cause grief, people gravitate towards us and the list goes on. We all hear the word consistently, but how can we put it into practical application in our daily living? Gratitude is not merely that we are grateful for the things we have but have an understanding of where all good things ultimately come from which is from God. This level of humility ultimately produces a grateful heart within us. So whether we feel grateful or not, it does our spirit well to bless those around us by practicing an attitude of gratitude!
