Being grateful IN all things.
One of my favorite thoughts: I am grateful IN all things.
Not FOR but IN.
Looking for the things to be grateful for WITHIN the difficult moments of life has been a game-changer for me. It keeps me present and reminds me I have a choice in looking up or down.
Case in point… I have to have dental surgery this week. Gah!
I would rather go to the gynecologist every day for a month than have dental surgery.
Yep, that’s how much I dislike going to the dentist.
I am not grateful that I have to have the surgery, but I AM super grateful that I have…
- An amazing dentist to perform the procedure,
- A loving husband who won’t laugh at me when I am doped up and numb-mouthed (oh who am I kidding? He will 100% laugh is ass off but he will also take very good care of me).
- Netflix to distract me from the aftermath horror in my mouth.
As you pass through the moments you aren’t so excited about this week, I hope you too will do yourself the favor of pausing and forging for the gold.
It’s always there, you just have to look… sometimes for days with a flashlight and an army of friends, but I promise it is there. Keep looking.
Make it a beautiful week, my friends.
