Do you notice how you are acutely aware of one when the other is thrust in your face? Life is like that in so many ways. For many of us it is so easy to be aware of what we're lacking in our lives. Many people live their life that way. Always looking, always wanting. You know, looking for that next thing, achievement or whatever thinking that it's that one that will make them whole and on top of the world. How about wanting, wanting or even coveting from afar because your neighbor, friend, coworker (or whomever it is) has the new house, new truck, new toy, more this, more that. What a waste.
Waste of what? Energy, appreciation. A waste of it all. All? Yep, all of it. All that you have. If you cannot focus and appreciate and voice to the heavens the gratitude for what you have right now, then you will never be happy with the possibility of what's coming.
Change that today. You have so much to be thankful for today. My list? Waking up, sending hubby off to work, watching boys do their chores, sending them off to school, cuddling and making the little ones laugh, starting the washing machine, seeing that I have likely 15 loads of laundry to manage today, getting some kitty love, listening to my 1yo have a chat with the cat, ah, there's so much more as it's only 8:44 and I didn't even hit on everything that happened so far this morning.
Attitude of gratitude, step up and take the opportunity to be grateful for all that you have. In the Lord's name I am here to praise Him for all the blessings He rains upon my shoulders every beautiful day!!
