An Attitude of Gratitude.....

Some days we all ought to stop! We should think! and we should reflect! then we should remind ourselves how blessed we are.

So for today I am cultivating an attitude of gratitude. I choose to be positive and I choose to see the best in everyone and everything.

Here is my gratitude list from the time I woke up this morning to now as I slink off to bed.

  • that I woke at 6.55am, a lie in from my normal 6.15am but still enough time to do what was needed and to leave the house by 7.45am
  • that I had a nice invigorating shower to wake up and felt comfortable in my clothes
  • that dh stripped JJ's sheets off when he had a little 'accident'
  • that the kids got dressed with the minimum of fuss this morning
  • that dh emptied and re-stacked the dishwasher before leaving for work
  • that I got a nice kiss from everyone as they went off to school, work and nursery
  • that the sun was shining and the rain stayed away
  • that I have a car and was able to drive to work
  • that everyone was smiling when I arrived to work, early!
  • that I enjoyed my breakfast
  • that the training course that I was running went well
  • that my mother in law picked up JJ from school
  • that my mother in law hung out the washing and did the washing up whilst I was at work
  • that JJ enjoyed his day at school
  • that the girls behaved at nursery and napped and ate well
  • that all my kids were really pleased to see me when I arrived to them
  • that I enjoyed my tea
  • that my house was still tidy when I arrived home
  • that I had fun reading the girls their bedtime story
  • that JJ and I spent time together wrapping all the girls birthday gifts
  • that the garage is nearly clear and ready for transformation
  • that I got a little bit of time on the PC to catch up
  • and lastly that I can now go to bed and sleep......

Have a go yourself, walk through your day in your mind and remind yourself that you are blessed. Have you ever read the book or watched the film - Polyanna? She plays the 'glad' game and is glad for everything, taking a positive slant on even the worst things and believe me this can get you through many tough times

This clip is from a re-make of the orginal film - enjoy!
