Being grateful can be hard when the things around you is falling apart. It’s hard to look at the good things in your life when the thing’s around you are crumbling to the ground. I know for me, I am having a hard time looking at all the good things in my life because its easier to focus on the negative things going on.
You have a choice everyday to look at the good things or the bad things. You can continue to look at all the things that are going right or the things going wrong. The one thing I struggle with is not having my kids as much as I want them right now. I start to feel lonely and then I start looking at all the other negative stuff going on.
Maybe me not having my children a lot is God’s way of telling me I need to work on my healing. So I can get mentally healthy for me and my children. I can show them that I am strong and you can beat anything that comes you way in life. So, I need to be thankful for this time. This time to heal, this time to change the things I need to in my life.
My challenge to you is find one thing you are grateful for in you life and build on that. It can be as small as you woke you this morning. You have another day to live with a purpose. There are so many people in my life that I am thankful for. I appreciate each and everyone who has helped me.
