How Grateful Are You?

Happy Friday Friends, Followers and Viewers,
Here I am with another question for you today.  It is one you hear often during the Thanksgiving holiday.  Unfortunately today is not Thanksgiving but I'm asking the question anyway...How Grateful Are You?  Maybe I should have asked, do you think of being grateful throughout the year or just on Thanksgiving day?  “Feeling grateful or appreciative of someone or something in your life actually attracts more of the things that you appreciate and value into your life.”
 ~ Christiane Northrup, MD  Grateful people are happy people, research shows. But how grateful are you?  Is it difficult to show gratitude?

  • You've tried to move up on your job and your current boss gives the job to someone else.
  • Someone wrong you...do you hold a grudge or let it go?
  • Your friend just won the lottery with numbers they heard you say but didn't play.
  • You remember people who helped you in small ways years ago.
  • The older you get, are you more or less appreciative?
  • Someone gives you a gift that you don't like.

I'm grateful you come by each day  to check out what I have to say and or create.  I'm also grateful for the lovely comments you leave.  They really make my heart happy.  Some of you can press the like button on "Google Plus" even if you don't write a comment, I'll be grateful if you did.
