Gratitude

“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.” – Melody Beattie

One of the greatest discoveries of my life so far is that I get to choose the lens that I see life through. I can choose to be grateful or grumpy.

No matter what circumstance I find myself in, I realize that there is always so much to be grateful for. If nothing else, I can be grateful that breath fills my lungs for another day of opportunity. And when I choose to live this way, I have enthusiasm for the adventure of another day – storms and all!
