MMM: Gratitude – The Foundation For A Better Life

Gratitude

Greetings Everybody!

I’ve been thinking about my own successes and shortcomings lately; for both 2018 and for the past decade. And with that review, I’ve DECIDED to take some decisive action and share that with everybody.

So, today, I’m resurrecting my Monday Morning Motivators (MMM).

Starting this morning, I’ll be posting a brief message along with a matching image. I’m doing this with the hope that you’ll find that they help you focus a little bit better at the beginning of the week. And, hopefully, you’ll be able to take one action that will help you achieve the goals you have already set for yourself.

Gratitude

There are many reasons to start – and end – each week with gratitude. But the biggest reason I’ve discovered is that having an “attitude of gratitude” always reminds me that I am NOT the center of everything around me. Over my lifetime, I’ve discovered that in my darkest days after making really bad decisions, I was focusing only on me. I thought I could do things all by myself. And that’s just not true.

So, I started the practice of looking at my blessings – my wife; my work; my family; my friends.

I discovered this quote and wanted to pass it on to you.

“Gratitude turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity…it makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.” –Melody Beattie

May you find the blessings of your life today and everyday!

Make Today Your Masterpiece!
