Are you grateful or grumbly?
Do you tend to focus on what is annoying or what is amazing?
Would others describe you as a buzzard or a butterfly? One looks for something rotten while the other is in constant pursuit of something sweet!
There are plenty of problems to fill the day. The priority we give our problems determines the altitude of our attitude.
When we look for the pearl among the pigs, the diamond in the rough and the rose among the thorns, something counter intuitive happens inside of us that helps put problems into perspective.
An attitude of gratitude helps push back the darkness, pain and suffering that sneaks into our lives.
Gloom begins to lose its grip on our spirits when we choose to embrace the good that desires to cheer us on.
When you are tempted to grumble, try to counter the urge by recognizing a few things you are grateful for in your life.
We often get what we are looking for in life. What we see is what we get.
