While I am thankful for those things, I want to have a conversation today about gratitude in the everyday lives of women. Because I don't know about you, but I begin each day by saying thank you. I am filled with gratitude for so many things, and those are the things I choose to focus on.
We are bombarded with so much negativity. It comes to us from everywhere. The TV, the newspapers, the internet, and even from people on the street. It seems like everyone wants to talk about negatives. I want to talk about and think about positives. I believe that what you focus on is what the universe sends back to you.
I will start the conversation with some of the things I am grateful for. I am grateful for my family. For waking up each morning to a new day. For the ability to talk, walk, hear, and see. For friends, like you. For simple pleasures. For my favorite chair. For a comfortable safe place to live. For an unlimited supply of free books to read. For my small business. For freedom.
There are so many more things that I am grateful for, but I want to hear from you. I normally don't dictate what can be said, but today I am asking that you not say anything negative. I want to focus on the positives, and no matter what your situation I bet you can come up with something that you are grateful for.
So please join in with us today. Pour yourself a cup of coffee or tea and let's chat.
