Makes Me Happy Monday #12
Opray Winfrey once said..... It's not easy being grateful all the time. But it's when you feel least thankful that you are most in need of what gratitude can give you!
We all know there are days in everyone's life when it is difficult to be happy and grateful..... especially during these difficult economic times. Those are the days when we really need to focus on what is important.... and focusing on gratitude can really make you feel better.
In the last 12 weeks since I have started writing Makes Me Happy Monday posts on my blog, I find myself happier in every facet of my life. Thinking about happiness and focusing on being grateful has really affected my life. I have developed an "Attitude of Gratitude". It has only taken moments a day to do this.
My blog has become a tool to deepen my expression of gratitude. I practice regularly. I have become more aware of the joy and beauty that is abundant for us on this earth. For any thing..... big or small... can truly make you happy. Once you focus on this happiness, you will find that the feeling begins to permeate every aspect of your life.
Let's remember that even though Thanksgiving comes but once a year, we can express our gratitude daily or weekly. In celebration, today, I declare I am happy for my ability to write and express my gratitude and happiness!!!
What are you happy about? And how frequently do you express your gratitude?
May you find happiness and serenity in your creative moments.
