Do You Choose Gratitude?

Nov 16, 2011 / Character     

You make decisions every day—what to eat, what to wear, where to go.  If you find yourself complaining…or frequently irritated, then make the decision to be content…to be satisfied with your circumstances in life.  It’s not hard, but it does take practice.  Next time you think of what’s wrong with your situation, stop!  For instance, instead of complaining because you have to mow the lawn, be thankful that you have a lawn to mow.  Get the idea?  Do a mental inventory of what you have to be thankful for…there’s a lot!  Find something that’s good and focus on that.  Follow Patrick’s example and choose contentment.
