An Attitude of Gratitude March 6, 2010

Posted by nrhatch in Gratitude, Happiness, Mindfulness.

Mickey-Ta-DaaaLife is a gift filled with everyday blessings.

When we count our blessings . . . everyday . . . that attitude of gratitude put us in the right frame of mind to enjoy all that life has to offer.

Be thankful for what you have.  As long as you have everything you need in this moment, you have everything you need.

This moment is all that matters.  The past has passed, and the future you are worried about may never arrive.

Let past hurts go.  They are just images in your mind.  Don’t hang on to the negative energy attached to those images.  Just take the lessons you learned and let the rest go.

Allow yourself the freedom to enjoy what life has to offer ~ right here, right now.

Trust that the future will unfold in exactly the right way at exactly the right moment in time.  Revel in the uncertainty.

Be spontaneous.  Be childlike.  Exude alertness and curiosity and wonder.  Follow the pure impulses of your spirit.

Look for the laughter in life.   There is always something to be happy about.  There is always something to be unhappy about.

You can focus on what is working, and be happier.  Or you can focus on what isn’t working, and rob yourself of happiness.

It’s your choice.

Happiness requires that we enjoy what we have, not that we have all we want.

No rules.  Just write!

I *do* count my blessings, but I still want to quit my job. I get no satisfaction from dispensing legal poison anymore.

I want to laugh and be happy.

You definitely should move in the direction of your dreams.

The key, though, is not to focus so exclusively on what you don’t like (your current job) that it blinds you to all the good things in your life.
