If I wanted to, I’m sure that I could find something to complain about every single day. I could keep myself stressed out and upset, and chose to fight some type of battle daily. Instead of looking for things to be upset about, I chose to view my life with the eyes and heart of gratitude.
Every single day of my life, my needs have been met. I am loved. I am well. My life is not perfect, but it is appreciated. My children are healthy, my home is warm on this cold, snowy day, and I have absolutely nothing to complain about. Why? Because I don’t focus on the bad.
When negative feelings come into my life, I try to release them immediately. This morning as I sat in stillness, I reminded myself over and over that the Lord is my Shepherd. I am not alone. God will take care of me. He has a plan and a solution for anything that arises in my life. And with my breath, I will praise Him.
Tomorrow is not promised. We shouldn’t waste today, worrying about what might happen tomorrow. Be present in today. Live. Love. Laugh. Pray. And be thankful for each moment.
Love and blessings,
