“What you focus on expands, and when you focus on the goodness in your life, you create more of it. Opportunities, relationships, even money flowed my way when I learned to be grateful no matter what happened in my life.”
– Oprah Winfrey
As I sit upstairs writing this post, I am absolutely engulfed in gratitude. I just watched my husband and two teenage sons going off on a hike, walking up the road laughing and joking together. Just in this moment – so much to be grateful for – a wonderful relationship with my two gorgeous sons; a loving relationship with my husband even after 23 years of marriage; a warm, comfortable home where I can write this and look out the window and see the sea; a healthy mind and body able to experience all this joy. I find it is vital, to take a bit of time each day, just for a few minutes, no matter what I’m doing, and feel the gratitude for that particular moment, for the experience of whatever it is that is happening right in that snapshot of a second.
Oprah Winfrey is a wonderful source of ideas about gratitude. I love reading her messages:
