I’ve been working on gratitude through the book “The Magic.” I’ve always made it a point to be grateful, but this book takes it to the max. Not only do you go one step higher, but you climb the ladder – and sometimes the mountain. Today I’m on top of the mountain.
It’s so much fun to be grateful for the small things and the big things. The things that are seemingly “bad” and those that are “good.” It’s wonderful to be thankful for friends as well as a perfect parking spot just waiting for you to park there.
It’s absolutely fabulous to be thankful for things that haven’t happened yet, but that you desperately want to have happened. It’s good to know that there is a solution to being “down in the dumps,” scared, alone, or just finding some sort of reason to hold you down. Being grateful for the down days and making things happen to make good things happen through gratitude is just plain awesome. The book is right, it gives you a higher-than-life feeling.
I met a couple who run a business. They seem discouraged, depressed, and in the dumps. Their marriage needs some spice to it. They were commenting on how huge of a smile I had. It would be fun to have the opportunity to encourage them to go on date nights, spice their life a bit, and read “The Magic” book.
I love smiling. I love hope. I absolutely love happiness. Gratitude makes this happen and it’s fabulously wonderful.
