Gratitude is the Best Attitude
A friend and I were recently catching up and she was telling me how she is working on just being thankful for the little things, the small "wins" in her day. Finding moments of gratitude in the ordinary: making all the lights on a busy street, finding $10 in the pocket of a coat you haven't worn since last year, arriving early when you thought you'd be late, witnessing a beautiful sunset....you know, things like that. Since 2015 is only a little more than a day away (Really, already??), adopting an "attitude of gratitude" is surely a positive first step to take as we cross into threshold of the new year and the 364 days that follow. With life being as busy and crazy at times as we often allow it to get-yes, we are the ones who ramp it up and are the ones in charge of dialing it down- it is important to recognize when things work out perfectly with ease and grace. Although these small "wins" can seem inconsequential given the "big stuff" such as family, work, finances, etc., acknowledging these little victories can be what keeps us grounded in the present moment and gives us a glimpse at the perfection of life. Our inner reality is often reflected in our outer reality with the universe conspiring to give us exactly what we expect. "As within, so without." Slowing down and being grateful for all that has, and is, going "right" can set us up for more of the same. Attitude truly is everything. May your 2015 be filled with many moments of ease and grace and that you are aware of the many blessings as they come your way.
