Gratitude is the antidote for misery, the medicine for loss, and the anti-venom for hatred and anger. At one of the darkest times in my life, when I was struggling the most and feeling pretty lost and left by God I had one friend who suggested 30 days of gratitude. To be honest I wasn’t super excited about it at first, but then I started noticing that people didn’t really want to be around me. As a people person that was just another punch in the gut. Talk about feeling alone. I decided that it couldn’t really make things any worse so I dipped my toe in. I started off just struggling to find one thing in my day to be grateful for, but by day 10 I was starting to find it hard to just pick one thing. By day 20 my daily list of things I was thankful for was between 20-40 each day. Needless to say by day 30 I was a changed person. I know that life is hard. We all struggle, and sometimes it just stinks. I do know that gratitude won’t fix our problems, but it will fix us. It doesn’t change our situation, but it absolutely will change our attitude, which will help us get through those hard times. My challenge is 30 days of gratitude. I promise you it will change your life. Happy Sunday everyone.
