“One of the best ways to start off your day on the right foot is to begin your day by thinking about the things you are grateful for.”
Today will be better. I will focus on the things for which I am grateful while continuing to work on solutions. I will avoid allowing anyone to get me off track with regard to my personal vibrations. I figured if I actually list the things for which I am grateful, I am forced to think about them, and avoid being dragged down the rabbit hole of despair.
What I am grateful for today
Today is an absolutely beautiful day. I can see the rolling green landscape of Williamson county from the comfort of my desk. It is absolutely breathtaking when I stop everything else, clear my head, and just take it all in.
My 18 year old daughter Carmen is in Los Angeles for an internship. One of the projects with which she is involved is the “save the river” project. She wondered “why are they trying to save a dirty old river?” During the presentation she realized most people of downtown LA never see nature in their day to day lives. They see concrete. In that moment she realized how much she had taken for granted by growing up in Williamson county, where nature is literally all around us.
Since then, I notice the piece of heaven God has given us here in the South. It is literally an Eden for me if I would only open my eyes and focus on IT and HIM, rather than the negative.
