At my job, every day we start the morning by sharing our good news. Sometimes it is a struggle to think of something, but I can appreciate it all the more because it forces me to chase the good and positive.
Even if I have been dog sitting another puppy all weekend and I feel like I cleaned up more messes than when we were in the thick of potty training our pup Blue. Even if I am struggling to adjust back to North Carolina busy life. I know that my good news this morning is that I got to spend some much needed quality time with my husband this weekend and that we actually weren’t that busy the past two days.
So here is my challenge to you—life is hard, and busy. There is always something responsible to get done, like laundry and the dishes. There is always something that will throw off your routine, or be frustrating. The good news is that you are in control of yourself and how you react to things. My challenge for you is to chase the good. Do it with me—every morning think of what your good news is.
Did you just get a cute new pair of shoes? Did you successfully try a new recipe? Did your kid accomplish something awesome, like good grades? Did you have a great date night?
Be thankful. Have an attitude of gratitude. If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.
It isn’t going to do your life much good if you are only thankful on Thanksgiving. It is time to create a habit of gratitude.
Until next time,
