Gratitude 

the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.
People always post about how they are ‘so thankful’, ‘so grateful’, ‘so blessed’, etc., but are they really? Or are we just saying it and not mentally checking within and spending the time to truly BE THANKFUL for what we have in our life? 

I am going to get a little personal. I had a breakdown this morning. Luckily my kids were not around to witness it. I just broke down and sobbed on my floor. I tried to figure out why I am feeling this way. I sat down and did some reflecting. I also did some meditating on my new Headspace App I mentioned in my previous post. Today’s session was about stop trying to push things into happening, just stop trying and it will happen. There were examples like – if you are trying too hard to fall asleep and trying to get comfortable you cannot, but at some point you drift away when you are not thinking about it. 

I then was flashed back to a time a few months ago when the word “Gratitude” was staring me in the face quite often. I would see it in an e-mail, I would see it on a social media post, but I never stopped to think it meant anything to me. Today I dug more into the word Gratitude and what it means. It made me realize that I need to practice this more. I always try to focus on the next “best thing”. I need to stop and live in the moment, and enjoy what I have. Just live and BE. 

I felt pulled to share this with you this morning. I hope you have a great day!
