Wednesday - Day 4
There's always something to be grateful for. Some days are easier than others to find gratitude but always look for it. Today is rainy / gloomy day and I'm grateful for the downpour of rain at least the weather isn't that humid. The only thing that we can control is our attitude not when we get sick;the weather; our friends; our family etc. Trying to control anything but your attitude is exhausting.
I'm grateful for little positive reminder., When you are writing the story of your life, don't let us others hold the pen." It's so easy to race through life really without taking in anything. Everything nowadays tends to be negatively fast paced that we forget to take notice of all the little things are actually important.
There's nothing wrong living life in the fast lane, of course, as long as you take time to stop and breath every once in awhile. And with slowing down and reviewing where I stand in my life. Am I growing complacent and going through the motions, or are am I consciously acting with intentions.
Being mindful of the things I say and do. It's easy to lose control of the reins and and just let everything just slip. It is too easy to let myself to be ruled by others rather taking affirmative action. The best things to do is stop. Do I like who I am? Do I want to progress? Ultimately I am in charge of my own life. I shaped my present and future. I need a little reminder now and then. This quote just helped to do just that. I'm grateful for this little checkup and the positive action I can take as a result.
Today I'm grateful for contemplation. I actually struggle to find something to be grateful today. It's not because I'm unhappy or being a miserable pessimist, but rather I couldn't explicitly point to one point that I feel grateful for. I'm grateful for the complex simplicity of each little speck on a vast expanse of existence for each little dreams in an atmosphere of hope. I feel excited, I feel alive and I feel grateful.
