It’s really simple. Gratitude- be grateful for all you have and all that is coming to you. I know, I know, some of you are saying, “Gratitude, schmatitude,” but as we say down south ‘you’re as wrong as a football bat’.
Having a grateful outlook or attitude is essential if you want to get ahead. Realizing that the Universe is always looking out for you is the secret sauce. The attitude of gratitude is yours for the taking, too. It’s all a matter of perspective.
Perspective. For nearly all my life, whenever I have been around someone with a dog (or when I have had dogs for pets) and the dog starts barking, the person (or I) would always implore the dog to stop barking. Sometimes to the point where it escalated to unhappiness or even anger.
Last week, my daughter and her boyfriend visited along with their dog, Sparrow. Sparrow rarely barks but when he did, instead of being annoyed or angry, my daughter would thank him for protecting us.
She what? Yep, she thanked Sparrow for protecting us and soon enough he would calm down.
What a concept: gratitude wins the day.
Yep, that’s it. Perspective. I choose to be grateful and my sincere hope is that you will choose that path, too.
Stay safe. Stay home. Press pause on the panic.
